Good news if you have an Apple TV and an active Facebook account. Your Facebook Video profile doesn't include your news feed or any other Facebook features; it's just videos that you've shared or posted online.

The app is built into Facebook for iOS; hence, it is not a standalone app. You will be able to also save the videos if you are on something other than the Apple TV, such as your iPad or iPhone. These recommendations will be based off of the interests you have listed on Facebook and based off of some videos you have already watched. Or, let the videos play automatically in the order they are shown. There is also a possibility of live sports streaming, just like Twitter had with some Thursday Night NFL games previous year. You may now select the category you like and scroll through the videos found in that category. The set-top box isn't the first device to use the app; just a day earlier, the app made its debut on selected Samsung Smart TVs, notes 9to5mac.
