Inter Miami and Lionel Messi started the MLS season the right way. Inter Miami defeated Real Salt Lake 2-0 at home in the Chase Stadium. It was the MLS season opener, and now Inter Miami is temporarily first in the Eastern Conference. The rest of the MLS teams will start their season on Saturday, with 11 games to be played. All the MLS games will be broadcast on Apple TV. This will be the second MLS season, where they show all the league games on this platform. While it is a pay-to-watch platform, football fans have subscribed to Apple TV just to watch Lionel Messi play for Inter Miami. This has impressed one of the highest executives at Apple.

Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue expressed his shock at Messi's impact on the MLS and on Apple TV subscriptions. Cue said, "I was amazed by the number of subscribers to the MLS service, and I had no idea it would be like this. Yes, I knew Messi would make a difference, but I thought it would take time. The situation has changed very quickly both on a global scale and in the United States."

Eddy Cue thinks Messi's impact is tremendous and is surprised to see the high numbers willing to watch Messi play. Cue said, "I didn't appreciate the power and influence that Messi had, but overall, it's amazing to see what he does. I will not give you the exact number, but before his arrival, most of the subscribers to the league service were from America, but now, after Messi, things have changed dramatically."
