Twitter wants to take over your TV experience as well! You can now watch Twitter’s live TV channel on Roku.
Twitter has been signing livestreaming deals, left, right, and center, for some time now and even recently announced a news channel in collaboration with Bloomberg. But to watch “Twitter TV” you won’t even need to go on Twitter. Now you can simply download Twitter’s channel from Roku’s channel store, set it up and start watching everything Twitter has in store for you.
On the channel, users can watch sports, entertainment, news, and politics, as well as browse the conversations and commentary around any live events being streamed to your TV. Ryan Troy, product manager at Twitter explained:
