Facebook Watch is the social media giant’s online video platform that was initially limited to the United States but has now been rolled out globally. Facebook has inked content partnerships to bring video content to the platform and is also funding the creation of original content for Facebook Watch. There’s a News section in Facebook Watch as well for those who want to keep up to date with current affairs and the first non-U.S. show on the platform will be hosted by the BBC.

The News tab was launched with content from ABC News, CNN, and other networks in the United States. The BBC is a global news behemoth in its own right and is the first non-U.S. network to bring news content to Facebook Watch.

BBC News will produce a weekly news show for Facebook Watch called Cut Through the Noise. The show is being produced for mobile users specifically as it will use vertical video and Facebook Live, the social network’s live streaming component. The show will report on stories from Washington and elsewhere.

BBC’s Cut Through the Noise will be available on Facebook Watch later this year. The show will be focused on a different issue every week either from the network’s Washington bureau or from the field.
