It’s official: Facebook launches music videos (in the US)
As predicted, Facebook is officially launching music videos, courtesy of licensing deals with all three major labels plus indie licensing agency Merlin, as well as BMG, Kobalt, and other labels, publishers and collecting societies.
It’s not a global launch. For now, it’s in the US, as well as in India and Thailand, where the new feature has been in testing already. Facebook has no news (yes, we asked) to share on expanding to other markets at this point.
“Starting this weekend, you’ll be able to discover, watch, and share music videos from today’s top artists to up-and-coming bands and classics across various music genres on Facebook,” announced a blog post by VP of music business development and partnerships Tamara Hrivnak and VP of entertainment Vijaye Raji.
From today, there will be a dedicated section for music videos on Facebook Watch, the social network’s video hub, with options to browse by genre, artist and mood, as well as curated playlists.
