Get it? It’s punny. Good job, Periscope. If you want to give it a go, head over to periscope.tv/couchmode.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
Currently available for the desktop, Couchmode still displays videos in portrait mode, but adds a small arrow in the top right to forward you along to a new video. It’s all very random, too; you don’t get to choose where your next video comes from.

If you want to watch an endless stream, just append the URL with ‘d=30’ and watch it switch every 30 seconds. It seems you can choose any timeframe you like, too (d=60 or d=90, for instance).
Periscope isn’t announcing this as a core feature yet. There was no blog post about it, only a Periscope broadcast from the Periscope team. Very meta, indeed.
