Major League Soccer and Apple have signed a partnership agreement that will make the Apple TV app the official “home” of all soccer games and relevant content from next year.
Once the deal is realised, Apple TV users and football fans will be able to watch all the games without needing a TV subscription or experiencing a local blackout.
Apple calls the partnership “a historic first” for the sports industry. The contract will run for ten years, starting in 2023 and ending in 2032.
In addition to the matches, sports fans can also view highlights, replays, analysis and live updates. With on-demand content and behind the scenes look, the user can follow the club or player they love.
Upcoming launch time, both Spanish and English broadcasting languages will be used, with Canadian teams also broadcasting in French. It is believed that other parts will expand to other Apple platforms, such as Apple News and more.
