It would as though Apple TV users will soon be able to get Picture-In-Picture on their Apple TV, according to the new tvOS 13 beta 2 that was released today.
Picture-In-Picture allows for users to be able to click out of the streaming or video service they are watching content from, put the video in a corner of the screen and multitask while still playing their content and that content still visible to the user.
The feature has been on the iPad and Mac a few years now and has been featured in apps like Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and is available to use on websites like YouTube and Vimeo.
This all comes thanks to a tweet by @nikolajht on Twitter (below) that has found the feature to be available in the newest tvOS 13 beta:

Picture-In-Picture for the Apple TV was not mentioned in the keynote at Apple’s WWDC 2019 a couple of weeks ago, so this was a nice surprise by them to be adding to the newest version of tvOS.
It has not been said whether or not this will be available across tvOS apps universally or just if you stream through the Apple TV app.
There is no specific release date yet for tvOS 13, but we believe that it will be released sometime this fall, which is usually the time when Apple releases the newest versions of their operating systems. Their likely September 2019/Fall 2019 keynote will give us an exact date of when it will be released.
