You can see live channels, popular recorded videos, and popular clips for each individual game. The full-featured live chat option is also available on Apple TV.

In order to install the Twitch app for tvOS on your Apple TV, you just need to open the App Store and search for it. Since the app has just been released and is still in the rollout process, it may take a while to appear to all users.
