Twitter’s new live-streaming Apple TV app arrives just in time for NFL Thursday Night Football. Available at no charge in the tvOS App Store, it lets owners of the fourth-generation Apple TV stream both top Twitter/Vine videos and the 10 NFL games that the micro-blogging services recently acquired the rights to broadcast, plus content from Bloomberg News, Campus Insiders, Cheddar, MLB Advanced Media, NBA, Pac 12 Networks and other premium sources.

And exclusively on the Apple TV, viewers can enjoy live premium video and check out tweeted video clips through a seamless side-by-side video experience. The app does not require you to have a pay TV subscription or a Twitter account to enjoy these high-definition video streams.

To get the app, search for “Twitter for Apple TV” in the tvOS App Store on your fourth-generation Apple TV. The app is available globally in the tvOS App Store and in select markets on Amazon’s Fire TV HDMI dongle and Microsoft’s Xbox One console.
