Periscope is introducing a new way to consume video. With “Couchmode”, you can quickly flip through videos on Periscope just like you would while sitting on your couch when watching TV.
Get it? It’s punny. Good job, Periscope. If you want to give it a go, head over to periscope.tv/couchmode.
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.
Pssst, hey you!
