The app is one component of a strategy to challenge the likes of YouTube. From within the app you have access to the growing library of videos on Facebook, including live videos and videos that get recommended based on your interests.

- “Enjoy Facebook videos on your TV screen. Watch videos from friends and Pages you follow, top live videos, and recommended videos, or revisit favorites that you’ve watched or shared on Facebook,” the company wrote in the release notes.

The app will not include ads at launch, Facebook said.

The app is free to download and available now on Apple TV4. We are currently able to download it from our US iTunes account but not our European iTunes account. It appears that Facebook is rolling it out in stages.
