FreeCast’s multi-channel Facebook TV app gives users a new way to enjoy CBS’s coverage of the weekend’s GRAMMY events
FreeCast.com labels themselves “Your Personal Channel Guide”, giving users access to over 7000 TV, Movie, Sports, News, Music and Event Channels all from one location for free, and now the FreeCast app will guide Facebook users to CBS’s live online streams of GRAMMY weekend.
“Last weekend we gave Facebook users the unique live experience of watching the biggest event in sports, the Super Bowl, and now we’re ready to give them the same opportunity with the biggest event in music,” says FreeCast.com President William Mobley. “After this weekend, Facebook users will see just how much potential the FreeCast app has for revolutionizing the way we watch TV and live events, allowing viewers to not only watch these events online for free but also to connect with friends and talk about what they’re watching at the same time.”
While Mobley is excited about bringing the weekend’s action to Facebook, he makes it clear that he doesn’t expect Facebook to act as an alternative to CBS’s television broadcast coverage of the awards, but rather as a “second screen”. CBS has confirmed that the online stream will provide coverage from the event that you can’t see on TV, so those who aren’t watching it online won’t be catching all the action.
