The current season of the U.S. Major League Soccer (MLS), which just ended earlier this month, has inspired Apple to introduce a new subscription service for Apple TV and Apple TV+ users called MLS Season Pass. Before the start of the regular season later that month, on February 1, clients will be able to access the service in more than a hundred different nations and locations.
Fans of the top football league in the United States will be able to purchase a Season Pass for $14.99 per month or $99 for the entire season. Meanwhile, Apple TV+ users will benefit from discounted prices of $12.99 and $79.99, respectively. Notably, Apple TV+’s base monthly membership cost was raised from $4.99 to $6.99 last month.
Replays, highlights, commentary, and more will all be available with the MLS Season Pass. Not only will the regular MLS season, but also the Leagues Cup and all playoff games, be covered in full. In order to persuade people to subscribe to its new subscription service, the tech behemoth is also promoting “no blackouts.” It’s important to note that the Leagues Cup and the Campeones Cup won’t be broadcast for Mexican audiences.
For the 2023 season, some games will already be freely accessible to Apple TV members, with the number of such watchable games being much higher on Apple TV+. Pregame coverage for games will start 30 minutes before they start, with the majority of games scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. ET. The complete schedule for the upcoming season won’t be revealed until about mid-December, according to current confirmations.
Earlier this year, Apple TV+ offered a number of Major League Baseball games for free to its users. Fans of the league can sign up for updates on the official page of the Apple TV app. More information on the MLS Season Pass will be made public in the upcoming weeks.
