Facebook is testing a new format of its Watch Party social-video chat that's meant for live TV unavailable to stream Facebook itself.
The company made the announcement Wednesday at a South by Southwest event in Austin, Texas.
It also announced that its original series Red Table Talk, a talk program with Jada Pinkett Smith, would return with 20 new episodes starting in May.
Facebook launched the Watch Party format last year, its idea of a vast digital living room for fans to share conversation about a video at the same time.
The test of the live-TV Watch Party concept will start in Facebook Groups during live sports events like UEFA Champions League soccer matches.
When you start a Watch Party, Facebook will offer new option called "on TV," where you can select the live game.
