Who knew that Germany and Italy were so interested in Baseball.
Yeah, as you can imagine we're not at all (I'm italian). I'd say that less than 5% of the entire European population is interested in Baseball... But as long as it's included for free in the Apple TV+ subscription it's ok to have it there.
If Apple thinks that the Europeans are going to sub to Apple TV+ for baseball they're completely wrong :)
In Europe there is just one sport: Football (soccer).
If they want to do well here they need a partner with FIFA and UEFA for at least the European Cups: "Champions League", "Europe League"...
Yes, they've just announced a 10 years collaboration with MLS, but i'm not sure if that is enough to convince the Europeans... ?

Yeah, hardly anyone in Europe is interested in this. Hopefully they don't spam the tv app with this. If they want to attract sports fans, then football and rugby world be the place to start.
