With the fairly recent creation of Apple TV, and the popularity in streaming services such as Netflix, the TV space is beginning to change. Users are starting to want to view content on demand from apps rather than watching them on broadcast television.

While sports are behind TV shows in the streaming space, the NHL recently took a step to catch up. NHL.TV created and app that allows fans to watch live streams of their favorite.

The app allows you to view as many as 6 feeds at once, all in HD. It also gives you the choice of watching from the main camera or from the goalie camera.

MLB is also planning on releasing a similar app this spring.
