Apple TV Introduces New Sports Channel in Brazil

In a recent development, Apple TV has broadened its service range by incorporating a local television station in Brazil, Esporte Interativo Plus, which will broadcast UEFA Champions League soccer matches and other regional sports content.

High quality global journalism requires investment.

Why is Apple doing this with us? Because since this app was launched on the iPhone, it was the most profitable sports app that Apple has launched in Brazil.

Over the past year, Apple has been actively enhancing its TV service, introducing new channels and features to users worldwide. Until now, Brazilian users of Apple TV had access to international services like YouTube and Netflix.

This new addition represents Apple’s initial challenge to local pay TV networks in the region.

As the trend of disconnecting from traditional pay TV services continues, Apple’s strategy to augment Apple TV with more local content is crucial. It is likely that Apple will continue to forge partnerships with local broadcasters as it seeks to transform Apple TV into a viable alternative to conventional cable services.
