Today Facebook announced that classic MTV Real World seasons will be coming to Facebook Watch later this year. Facebook users will be able to vote on which season Facebook brings to their streaming services.
This news comes after Facebook recently added every episode of Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly free on Facebook Watch.
Facebook has struggled to find hit original shows with their Facebook Watch platform. Some of the expected new shows like a remake of MTV’s Real World won’t hit Facebook until 2019. Now they seem to be turning classics to help bridge the gap until they have their own hit original shows.
Facebook Watch works on Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Android, and iOS devices. There is no word on if this is the start of Facebook building a free streaming services full of older hit shows like Firefly or if this is just a stop-gap measure to hold people over until new content launches in 2018 from their partners.
