Here’s some good news for Twitch fans who use Apple TV. You’ll like this, trust me. As of today, the official Twitch app is finally available on Apple TV. As you probably already know, the app has been available for consoles, mobile devices, and Android TV boxes for years now, but not for Apple TV owners.
Those who use Apple TV were forced to use third-party apps this whole time. Well, last month, Twitch released a public beta of its Apple TV app, and today, the final product is ready.
This means of course, that users will be able to live-stream games, view clips on demand and join on-screen chats. Just like everyone else on other platforms can do. Apple TV gives access to both video streams and chats from gamers around the world, featuring live broadcasts of events from the United States, Brazil, Europe, South Korea, and Turkey. As we saw with the beta, the screen layout is very similar to Twitch’s other recent apps, and as some people are pointing out, the app isn’t just for gamers either. In addition to gaming, Twitch hosts other broadcasts, like Thursday Night NFL Games for instance. This is great news for Apple TV.
