Apple TV need something to set it apart from the rest of the pack, and they just may have found it, if the rumors are true.

TechCrunch cited many sources - that they wouldn't name - that said that Twitter's live-streaming app Periscope, which has become one of the most successful social media apps in the last year, will be available on the new Apple TV.

Today's Apple iPhone event today is expected to announce the new Apple TV plan, but it is unknown if there be specifics.

The app will reportedly let you watch Periscope livestreams on your TV, but may not let you share your own video.

"Though we can't confirm the exact functionality of the app, it's likely to be focused on watching streams," the report notes. "Periscope made videos viewable on the Web in June without the ability to broadcast, and the Apple TV app could work similarly."

There is no word as to when the app will actually arrive, but people on both Apple and Periscope's teams are at work on the program. They may display a mock up today, but it is unlikely we will see anything concrete.

As the iPhone is the main attraction of today's event, but there have also been rumors about Apple TV and new iPads. In the case of the Apple TV, rumors tip a larger, pricier set-top box with Siri integration, and its own App Store with API support so developers can create apps for it. Expect to pay about $149, though the existing $69 device will remain on the market.

Other rumors include universal search, which will allow you search across all apps at once.
