The Settings tab is where you can enable captions, comments, and reactions-all of which are turned off by default. From here you can go from the Home tab to the Profile tab.
Then Facebook flexes its algorithmic muscles with videos it thinks you'll like based on your various activities across the Facebook-connected ecosystem. You will also be able to see recommended videos for you to watch on the Facebook Video app for Apple TV.
