Periscope's Apple TV App Brings Channel Surfing to the Internet Age

Periscope's new Apple TV app is a constant stream of the live-feeds deemed "most interesting" by an algorithm, leading to a unique feed-surfing experience.

As Wired's Jason Tanz writes, "After a few days, I found myself oddly hooked on the experience. Most Periscopers aim their broadcasts at a dedicated audience of followers—the mobile users who have subscribed to their feeds, and therefore presumably have some relationship to them or natural interest in what they have to say. That’s not the case for Periscope TV viewers, who are automatically shunted into broadcasts without context or background. It’s a fascinating disconnect, and it gives the app an intriguing whiff of intrusion and disorientation, like you’re jumping into the middle of an intimate family conversation without knowing anyone involved."
