Facebook's latest grab bag of updates is all about 'community'

Facebook's latest grab bag of updates is all about 'community' Amid a slew of executive departures, circulated misinformation and efforts to unify multiple chat platforms, Facebook is updating tools that people still use on its core site. At the Facebook Communities Summit in Menlo Park today, the company introduced a slew of new features and expanded the rollout of some tools in testing that are meant to help Group and Page admins better engage their members.

Epix is the latest TV holdout to launch a streaming video service

Epix has been one of the TV industry's more conservative outlets. Where HBO, Showtime and other premium services launched stand-alone streaming services a while ago, Epix has insisted that you subscribe to a TV package to sample its wares. Now, however, it's ready to buck tradition. The MGM-owned brand just launched a $6 Epix Now service that provides all four of the network's live channels as well as on-demand access to original shows(like Berlin Station and the Batman-based Pennyworth) and "thousands" of movies.

This being 2019, you can expect 4K video as well as access across a host of devices. You can use Apple TV, Android and iOS to watch right away, while Amazon Fire TV and Roku support is "coming soon."

With that said, this might not be for everyone. Like other single-network offerings, it risks becoming one service too many for viewers who feel like they need multiple subscriptions just to keep up with the streaming world.

As it is, Epix isn't relying solely on streaming to appeal to non-traditionalists. It's approving development of a documentary series based on the podcast Slow Burn, which covers the twists and turns of a President's downfall. The first season will "mirror" that of the podcast, focusing on the Watergate scandal and its connections to the modern day. It'll be hosted by podcaster and Slate journalist Leon Neyfakh. There's no mention of a release date, but there's little doubt that Epix is eager to join the ranks of media giants adapting successful podcasts.
