But Apple is offering some early season games for free, including six on Saturday, March 18. Here they are:

Seattle at LAFC at 4 p.m. ET (Also available on Fox.)
Toronto at Miami at 7:30 p.m. ET
Dallas at Kansas City at 8:30 p.m. ET
Houston at Austin at 7:30 p.m. ET
Colorado at Minnesota at 9:30 p.m. ET
LA at Vancouver at 10:30 p.m. ET

Note that MLS Season Pass does not have blackouts so all games will be available for free regardless of market.

The company seems to understand that it might take some time generating paid subscribers for Season Pass and the free games can help elicit interest.

Tommy, hope that helps. Happy viewing and stay safe!
