Apple TV has signed a ten-year media rights agreement with Major League Soccer

Starting in 2023, Major League Soccer has announced that Apple TV will be the home of all of the league’s matches for the next ten years. With the league’s media rights arrangements set to expire at the end of 2022, it has been in talks with a number of potential partners, but in a first-of-its-kind deal, Apple has emerged as the league’s pick. By subscribing to a new MLS streaming service through the Apple TV app, fans will be able to watch every live MLS match in English or Spanish. Because every MLS team’s local television arrangement will expire at the end of 2022, there will be no more blackouts.

The deal also includes the forthcoming expanded Leagues Cup involving all MLS and Liga MX teams, as well as select MLS NEXT Pro and MLS NEXT matches.”For the first time in the history of sports, fans will be able to access everything from a major professional sports league in one place,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of services in a news release. “It’s a dream come true for MLS fans, soccer fans, and anyone who loves sports.” The new streaming service will include a weekly live match whip-around show, providing live look-ins and goal highlights from MLS games as they happen. Details on the cost of the new service, as well as other programming, broadcast teams and what the league says are more consistent match windows are forthcoming. MLS fans with full-season ticket packages to their local team will receive the service for free.
