Facebook is launching a video subscription service that will put them into direct competition with Amazon and Roku.
Initial content partners for Facebook video subscriptions:
1) Tastemade Plus
3) CollegeHumor Dropout
Each subscription will cost between $2.99 and $6.99 per month.
Facebook also released new numbers for Watch including:
1) Viewers/month – 720M
2) Viewers/day – 140M
BTW: Facebook counts a view once a user watches 60 consecutive seconds of content.
