Since tvOS lacks a web browser, there's no other way to watch Facebook videos on Apple TV, except by using AirPlay from another device, the report said late on Sunday.

Facebook announced Watch app for videos on Apple TV in 2017, after first rolling it out on Samsung smart TVs.


The app is also available on various other smart TVs and consoles, as well as on Facebook's mobile app and desktop site.

"On Facebook Watch, you can discover videos and original shows on subjects like sports, news, beauty, food and entertainment," according to the company.

To watch these videos on TV, you can download the Facebook Watch TV app, or stream to a TV from the Facebook mobile app, it added.

It's unclear why Facebook Watch app was discontinued on Apple TV.
