Facebook wants to be more than a place to browse photos and posts from friends. It also wants to be where you head to watch and discuss . The social network said Thursday it's launching a test that will let some people sign up for video subscriptions on Facebook.
Facebook is partnering with just a few services to start, including BritBoxTV, CollegeHumor Dropout, MotorTrend On Demand and Tastemade Plus.
"We're testing video subscriptions on Facebook, starting with a limited set of partners," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. "We'll be listening to feedback from our community."
None of the major video streaming services is part of this new test. The social network launched its own hub for video and original shows,, in 2017.
Subscription prices for each of the services will be the same on Facebook as other platforms, according to Variety. Tastemade Plus costs $2.99 a month. CollegeHumor Dropout starts at $3.99 a month. MotorTrend On Demand is $4.99 a month. BritBoxTV costs $6.99 a month.
Facebook is testing subscriptions in the US and will roll them out in the coming weeks.
