These sports streaming innovations range from in-app football game streams to athlete-owned boxing channels. Changing the way audiences experience sports entertainment, these examples include Oscar de la Hoya's free boxing channel which streams matches without the viewing fees commonly associated with competing networks.

Other standouts include hockey streaming apps and live-streamed basketball games -- launched by NextVR, self-described as a "pioneer in delivering immersive and recorded virtual reality experiences."

Additional sports streaming innovations include mobile platforms that are associated with popular television networks like Sports Center and ESPN. Sharing scores, game schedules and interviews with famed athletes, these platforms also feature in-app streaming capabilities. These examples make the viewing experience of sports fans more immersive and engaging by allowing viewers to enjoy programming anywhere and while on the go.
