Facebook wants you to buy HBO so you can watch Game of Thrones on the social site

California [United States], December 14 (ANI): Taking a cue from Amazon, Facebook is reportedly set to announce pay TV channels where you can buy specific channels on the platform and watch them.

The social networking platform is in talks with pay TV channels including HBO, Showtime, and Starz for their streaming services on Facebook, Recode reported.

Those who subscribe to the channels would, theoretically, be able to watch them on Facebook’s own properties including Watch hub and also on other platforms such as Roku TVs.

It is expected that Facebook would launch the product in the first half of 2019. [source_without_link]ANI[/source_without_link]
