Apple is offering the MLS Season Pass subscription with a massive 25% discount

Oliver Haslam | May 1, 2024 1:30 PM CDT

If you're a soccer fan who hasn't yet signed up for the MLS Season Pass offering on Apple TV, now is the time to do just that. Apple is offering a full 25% discount off the usual asking price for a year's subscription, giving you the chance to take all of the soccer in at a discounted price. However, as great as that is, there's a catch.

Apple is offering the MLS Season Pass subscription with a massive 25% discount

That catch? You're getting a 25% discount because this isn't a full season - the subscription will give you access to the rest of the season's content but you've obviously already missed a chunk after the MLS season began in February. Still, if you want to jump in now it's great that you aren't paying for content that you've already missed.

This offer means that you can take out an MLS Season Pass subscription for just $69 for the remainder of the season, down from the usual $99 asking price that was being offered previously. Those who are already Apple TV Plus subscribers can also benefit from an additional discount, making the MLS Season Pass offering just $59 for the remainder of the season. The MLS Season comes to a close on October 19 and the pass also includes the end-of-season playoffs that are expected to kick off around that time too.

The Big Cigar will make its global debut on May 17 with the first two episodes made available to stream on Apple TV+ around the globe. From there, viewers can expect new episodes to be made available every Friday through to the season's conclusion on June 14.

The six-episode show is based on the magazine article of the same name by Joshuah Bearman who also happens to serve as the show's executive producer. The show tells the true story of what Apple calls Hollywood revolution meeting social revolution. It tells the story of Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton escaping from the FBI to Cuba with the assistance of famed producer Bert Schneider. Amazingly, the whole plan involved a fake movie production and the escapade did not go according to plan. In fact, Apple says, it went wrong in every way that it possibly could.

Apple TV+ hit Silo is getting a third and fourth season according to someone who should know

Oliver Haslam | Apr 17, 2024 3:00 PM CDT

The Apple TV+ streaming service has had a ton of hits to call its own since its launch, and while the library it offers might not be as big as that boasted by Netflix or Disney+. it definitely makes up for the lack of quantity with top-notch quality. Silo is one example of a great offering, and while we already knew that there was a second season on the way, we now know there's more to the story than that.

Apple TV+ hit Silo is getting a third and fourth season according to someone who should know

While Apple TV+ hasn't officially confirmed anything yet, star of the show Rebecca Ferguson has told Collider that there will actually be a third and even a fourth season, with the latter two being filmed back to back. That might suggest that the seasons will be released closer together than usual, which will be extremely good news for people who don't want to wait.

The decision to share the Silo story across four seasons is interesting given the fact that the books the show is based on ended after the third. Ferguson told Collider that the ending is already decided and that it'll come at the end of that fourth season. But beyond that, everyone's keeping their cards close to their chest.
