  • Sit back, relax, and enjoy Facebook videos on TV
  • Stay up to date on videos shared by your friends and people and Pages you follow
  • Tune in to popular live video
  • Discover new videos with recommendations based on your interests
  • Catch up on saved videos or revisit favorites you’ve watched or shared

If you're interested, you can get your hands on the new Video app by Facebook for your Apple TV 4. Once you install the app from the tvOS App Store, on the first launch, users will be prompted to log into their Facebook account by providing the relevant details.

At this point in time, the Video app does not feature any ads. However, this might potentially change soon in the near  future. In addition to this, Facebook also has plans to offer premium video content through the Video app in the future. If you're willing to give it a go, you will need to install the standard Facebook app on your Apple TV 4.
