Since it’s football for most of the world, shouldn’t it be called MLF?

I dream of the day when there's a Premier league season pass in the UK, with every game live including the 3pm kick offs all through a single service. I know there are 'options' for that, but I would gladly pay for high quality reliable non-dodgy official streams.

BUT it's more expensive than the previous ESPN+ coverage, and Apple essentially fired ALL the local broadcast teams in the league in favor of a national squad of broadcasters and pundits. Some broadcasters had been with teams for quite a few years and were part of the club culture. There is now no local coverage.
This is what I dislike about Apple sport coverage. They don't care about continuity or culture.

The ATV+ UI also needs improvement and would have already been fixed if they understood sport fans: There is no means to hide the final score! I went looking for the Orlando City match from yesterday.



I covered the final score, just as Apple should.

Hmm. Here in Australia I can (and do) get the Premier League for less than that.

Sporting rights are worth different amounts in different markets. As well as the quality of the competition, things like match times matter a lot. Putting Apple’s interests aside, if MLS wants to reach global audiences they ought to want their broadcasts priced competitively. In this country, that is an awful lot of money relative to what we pay for other things. It’s a prime time price, but not a prime time product.

I signed up for MLS Season Pass with the T-mobile freebie. I complained earlier that Apple spoil the final score in the app. I further discovered if I want to watch a previous match, I can only watch a recap!

Apple clearly aren't sport enthusiasts.
