This weekend the awards season kicks off with the “2018 Golden Globe Awards” on NBC. If an antenna is not an option for you and you want a free option to watch the award show, you may want to check out Facebook.
This year Facebook and Dick Clarke Productions have teamed up to stream the two-hour “Golden Globes Preshow” for free on Facebook.
“Facebook has had a long collaborative relationship with the entertainment community, and we’re thrilled to be able to extend that through our work with the Golden Globes,” Sibyl Goldman, head of Facebook’s Entertainment Partnerships in a statement. “We always aim to create unique experiences which bring communities together, and partaking in the kickoff of award season in conjunction with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, is a demonstration of our commitment to bring fans together through entertainment they enjoy.”
This is a big win for Facebook because last year this deal went to Twitter. The good news is as services such as Facebook and Twitter fight it out for streaming rights cord cutters win in the end.
