One of the best kept secrets about watching soccer on streaming is the Multicast feature that’s included on Apple TV devices.
Multicast isn’t new, but it’s a feature that’s a must-have for soccer fans two main reasons: (1) More games are moving to streaming, and (2) so many must-see matches happen at the same time.
To learn more about Multicast, which is only available on ESPN+ on Apple TV and XBOX One, we’ve created a video to show you what it is, and how it works.
Even if you already own an Apple TV device, you’ll find the video helpful as a refresher on how to use Multicast.
By this stage, many soccer fans subscribe to ESPN+ because it offers a majority of soccer coverage including Bundesliga, Serie A, UEFA Nations League, Championship, League One, League Two, FA Cup, League Cup, MLS, Leagues Cup, US Open Cup, USL, International Champions Cup, Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana, Eredivisie, Danish Superliga, Chinese Super League, Indian Super League, Australian A-League, Sweden’s Allsvenskan and FA Community Shield.
If you love to watch the Bundesliga, Serie A and FA Cup, in particular, ESPN+’s Multicast feature on Apple TV is a must-have to watch several games at once.
While Multicast may not be for everyone, it is quite unlike anything else offered by the other streaming services. Maybe in the future we’ll see something like this available on Roku, Amazon Fire or other devices? Until then, it’s an ideal selling point for Apple TV and XBOX One.
