Apple TV Scores Big With Live Sports as Messi Powers Subscriptions Surge

The arrival of the Argentine soccer maestro, Lionel Messi, on American shores was one such moment. On the day of Messi's inaugural match with Inter Miami, MLS Season Pass on Apple TV witnessed an unprecedented surge in subscriptions, with over 110,000 fans eagerly signing up. It wasn't just about Messi; it was about the communal experience of sharing in the thrill of the game.


MLS Season Pass on Apple TV demonstrated how live sports should be experienced. For a single, reasonable price, subscribers gained access to all the games, with no frustrating blackouts to spoil the experience. In the world of finance and taxes, there's a saying that goes, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." MLS Season Pass on Apple TV embodies this principle. Just like effective financial planning should be accessible to all, so should the joy of watching your favorite team compete.

One remarkable aspect of this surge in MLS Season Pass subscriptions was the role played by Spanish-language viewership. With Messi in the spotlight, Spanish-speaking fans flocked to #MLSSeasonPass on @AppleTV in droves. In fact, the viewership for Messi's matches exceeded the 50% mark and showed no signs of slowing down.
