The new app is available now on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Microsoft Xbox One. The company adds that the Apple TV app has exclusive features such as "live premium video” and “tweeted video clips” side-by-side. If you want, you can browse a twitter feed on the screen at the same time.

- ”These devices will bring Twitter's live streaming video experience to life on the TV screen,” said Anthony Noto, chief financial officer at Twitter. "Twitter has always been a great complement to TV, and now fans can enjoy even more premium video with live Tweets — and the best content on Twitter — right from their TVs. We're excited to introduce this new experience to people, without requiring a paywall or having to log in to Twitter.”

Streams are available in HD quality, says twitter.

The app is available globally for Apple TV. For Xbox One you can watch from the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, and Mexico. For Amazon Fire TV and Stick you can watch from the US and the UK.
