MLS kicks off its 23rd season on Saturday. After one of the wildest and most unpredictable offseasons in league history, you won't want to miss a minute of the action.
Here is how to watch out-of-market matches in 2018:
Streaming in United States
Fans in the United States can stream out-of-market matches using free access to MLS LIVE until the launch of ESPN+ this spring. MLS LIVE is available for fans at live.mlssoccer.com, the MLS app, Apple TV and Roku. Fans must register for an account at live.mlssoccer.com to obtain free access to MLS LIVE (fans cannot create an account in our app, Apple TV or Roku). Fans with a previous account can use their existing account credentials. Local or national TV blackouts may apply. All local markets will have a blackout policy in 2018.
MLS LIVE accounts were NOT auto-renewed for 2018. If you have billing questions please contact MLS LIVE support.
MLS LIVE is moving to ESPN+ this spring. ESPN+ is the direct-to-consumer streaming product from ESPN and BAMTECH Media. Following the spring launch, all MLS LIVE games will be available to fans in the United States exclusively on ESPN+ as part of the $4.99 monthly subscription.
Club streaming partners: Some clubs have also signed agreements with local TV partners (YouTube TV, etc.). Check your club's website for details about streaming using a local TV partner.
Streaming in Canada
In Canada, MLS LIVE is moving to the DAZN platform. Fans in Canada can subscribe to DAZN starting on Saturday, March 3. The subscription will allow fans in Canada to stream matches not broadcast on CTV, TSN, TVAS and offer match replays for all games.
MLS Direct Kick
MLS Direct Kick, an out-of-market package for cable TV and satellite TV users, is back for 2018 and is available for $89.00 on DIRECTV and iN DEMAND. For more information, visit directv.com/sportsor indemand.com or contact your local cable provider.
