Apple Signs 10-Year Deal for Major League Soccer Broadcast Rights

Apple Newsroom:

Apple and Major League Soccer (MLS) today announced that the Apple
TV app will be the exclusive destination to watch every single
live MLS match beginning in 2023. This partnership is a historic
first for a major professional sports league, and will allow fans
around the world to watch all MLS, Leagues Cup, and select MLS
NEXT Pro and MLS NEXT matches in one place — without any local
broadcast blackouts or the need for a traditional pay TV bundle.

From early 2023 through 2032, fans can get every live MLS match by
subscribing to a new MLS streaming service, available exclusively
through the Apple TV app. In addition to all of the match content,
the service will provide fans a new weekly live match whip-around
show so they never miss an exciting goal or save, and also game
replays, highlights, analysis, and other original programming.
