Cord Cutters Will Be Able Stream Two Channels At Once in tvOS 14 for Apple TV
Earlier this week, Apple made major announcements at their Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) to Apple TV and tvOS — including a brand new update to Apple TV devices called tvOS 14. The most noticeable enhancement is platform wide support for P.I.P. meaning that you can watch on-demand or live video.
While during the Keynote, the company demoed picture-in-picture across apps, we’ve have now confirmed that it supports the ability to stream two videos simultaneously in the same app. There is even built-in functionality that lets you natively switch between full-screen and picture-in-picture of the two streams.
How P.I.P Works in tvOS 14
Picture-in-picture within a single app is a much requested feature for cord-cutters, in particular sports fans.
Prior to its shutdown, PlayStation Vue has a similar feature called multi-view that allows you to watch four channels at the same time. While the feature was originally only available on PS4, they extended it to Apple TV devices.
