Earlier this month, Apple new Twitter account dedicated to gaming was launched. Now, according to a report by Techcrunch, the famous live-streaming app owned by twitter: Periscope is developing an app for Apple TV.
Periscope is developing an app for Apple TV, which will allow users to watch live-streaming videos on their Televisions. As of now, it has not been disclosed whether users will be able to broadcast videos from their Apple TV or not. So we can expect that these live-streaming videos will still be coming from mobile devices. So we can’t say much about the clarity of videos, which will be streamed on Apple TV.
Techcrunch report adds:
“Though we can’t confirm the exact functionality of the app, it’s likely to be focused on watching streams. Periscope made videos viewable on the web in June without the ability to broadcast, and the Apple TV app could work similarly.”
Periscope is developing an app for Apple TV and it can be beneficial for both companies:
This move by Periscope might prove to be beneficial for gaining more viewers. If this feature is successfully accepted by users, it will help the Cupertino-based company to persuade consumers to buy this new device. Apple TV may be able to defeat its rivals such as Amazon and Roku with this live streaming feature.
Periscope is developing an app for Apple TV, but it has not been disclosed, when the app will be launched. This is the first report indicating active development of any third-party apps for the upcoming Apple TV. The forthcoming device is said to get a major hardware boost, including an Apple A8 SoC, an improved remote with Siri button and support for Bluetooth game controllers. More details will be disclosed today at the official event.
