With so many streaming sports apps and so many streaming devices for your television, it’s a good idea to make sure the the device you own or plan on purchasing can support the apps you plan to stream your favorites sports with.
This chart below shows which devices have dedicated apps for whatever streaming service you subscribe to. In a nutshell, all the major sports streaming apps are available across Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV and Chromecast except for NHL.TV. With the growing popularity of Amazon Fire TV, I can only assume that NHL.TV will soon support Fire TV as well.
One note about Chromecast – because you need install and use the streaming app on a device (computer, tablet, phone), there are some apps that have a dedicated ‘Cast’ button and some that don’t. Those without this dedicated button you will need to cast the browser tab or the entire screen in order to view it on your television. Those without the dedicated ‘Cast’ button are marked with an asterisks (*).
