@rrhoover Freaking awesome... imagine when you have the NFL game there and under it feeds from players live from periscope!

@rrhoover Good article on Recode on the Twitter Wimbledon livestream (an incomplete "test" experience) ahead of the NFL deal

This is what Twitter should exploit. Live events with video and feed. Get this on the Apple TV ASAP!

It's just commentary now (with a link to an ESPN page that doesn't work in the US), but I think this is a good sign of what we'll see when the NFL streams start this fall. And that's awesome.

@film_girl Agreed. This could also work for sports with fledgling fan bases in various countries, like cricket. Seeing pros and commentators explain what's happening and why without interrupting the viewing experience for informed fans.

Isn't this just a step up from radio though? RE: Wimbledon - You don't seem to be able to watch the match, just a video of the commentators haha. Also its a few minutes behind the live game - and with Twitter focusing on real-time, live events - it may need to get up to speed here. I like the idea though and the tweet stream next to it is cool.

@bentossell Agreed. Who wants to "watch" commentary? I was a bit bummed. But it's a big step in the right direction.

Imagine this will move the needle in a big way on the advertising front.
