Facebook Watch adding Buffy, Angel and Firefly for fans to stream for free


The popular Joss Whedon shows Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngel and Firefly have been available to watch on Hulu for a while now but Facebook Watch has something big planned — and it started today.

While fans who pay for their Hulu subscriptions have been able to binge Whedon’s masterpieces, Facebook Watch is now offering the same thing free of charge.

On November 30, Facebook Watch added all 268 episodes of the three shows to their service.

They will remain on Hulu but this gives people who are not interested in paying for the streaming service a chance to either relive the fantasy/sci-fi shows or discover them for the first time.

Facebook Watch also offers fans an interactive chance to discuss the episodes with other fans who are also watching the episodes at the same time — anywhere in the world.

This is what Facebook Watch wants to build — a social video platform where people are not watching something in the solitude of their home, but watching it with other fans and chatting about it in the social box under the video.

This could be huge for these three Joss Whedon shows, as they have very dedicated fan bases — even 20 years after Buffy was one of the top fantasy shows of its era.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a reboot of the movie of the same name, which Joss Whedon wrote but did not direct. The show added a supporting case (The Scooby Gang) and ended up as the fantasy show that revolutionized television.

Angel was a spin-off series from Buffy, focusing on the Angel with a Soul that fell hard for Buffy. It was more of a detective styled series but kept the close-knit family unit that made Buffy so popular intact.

As for Firefly, it was one of the most beloved sci-fi TV shows of all-time, almost a western-sci-fi hybrid that was bungled when it premiered on television but became one of the most sought-after shows when it hit home video.
