ESPN+ in the world of sports broadcasting may be Disney's leader, but opportunities for sport-specific services are also increasing.

Hockey followers can watch games and get updates through the NHL website and app about their favorite teams and players, both of whom are getting a makeover to provide more details hardcore fans want to see.

The updates to the Gamecenter of the NHL app will show data and videos of pre-game, live and post-game views, while the website of NHL.com has been updated to make games, scores and player information easier to find.

More apps are expected for potential release, including on the NHL website personalization options and later this season immersive information visualizations.

If you want to view matches either through the app or the website, you will need a NHL.TV subscription which offers a variety of options to watch games live or on demand.

The app can also be downloaded via various platforms such as iOS, tvOS, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon Fire TV and smartphones, as well as Google Chromecast.
