  • Facebook’s deal with Stadium to live stream 15 college football matches
  • Schools like North Texas, Utah State, and Idaho will participate in these games
  • For now, Facebook won’t be selling ads or commercial against these matches
  • It is a chance for Facebook to advertise its newly redesigned video tabs

Facebook has been looking for such shows in two different categories. The ones to fit under big budget slot that could offer feel at home experience to the users and the others to go under low budget segment. The low budget shows will refresh after every 24 hours to be replaced by other similar trending videos. The new video initiative would provide more exposure to the already popular social networking site.

The giant social networking site has been trying to secure the exclusive rights for such matches for past few years but those rights were not exclusive to the Facebook. However, it had successfully streamed some NBA and MLA season games. Facebook has also secured a deal with Fox Sports to stream Champion League soccer matches.
