Looks like Facebook's video efforts have been paying off lately. The social network has scored two more series premieres after Amazon's Catastrophe, and both are from HBO: Dwayne Johnson-starrer Ballers and political comedy The Brink. These series' pilot episodes are now available for viewing on The Rock's Facebook account and on The Brink's official page for a limited time -- Ballers, in particular, will feature a video intro from Johnson. The shows are already up on HBO Now and HBO Go, but this sounds like a great way to sample them for free if you're in the US and still don't have access to either service. Facebook has been putting more and more energy into expanding its video offerings, seeing as the platform has been helping boost the company's active user count. Not to mention, it's been bringing in $$$ from video ads since 2014.
