    All businesses will soon be able to choose a featured video to be displayed extra-large with a live comment feed atop their Page, and cobble together playlists of more of their videos. This makes the Videos tabs of Pages look and feel a lot like YouTube Channels. TechCrunch spotted the new design and features on ABC News? Page, and the company confirms it testing the format with a handful of Pages, and plans to roll it out to them all in the coming weeks.

    No prob.

    I though the same thing actually, it looks pretty good. The only thing I'd change is the way it defaults to showing all the videos. I think what would be better is if you went there and they had the big video up top with the comment feed, but then have your normal Timeline underneath that. So basically, you'd have the Cover photo and video like they do now, but then your Timeline would start right under that where they currently have the Playlists start instead since it's the videos page. Kind of a hybrid page in a way I guess.
