Is there any difference between the two?
Thanks.

Miss out on implies missing an opportunity to do something.

I got to the party late and missed out on the food = by the time I got to the party there was no food left. Emotion: angry
HAHA. You can miss a show, can't you? Like you missed a bus or a flight.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Yes of course. Your first sentence is fine. Sorry I thought you knew that.

I must not assume - it makes an ass out of u and me.
I didn't know that and am still a bit confused. It sounds like they share the same meaning.

But I do know assume Emotion: smile ass u (and) me
OK

You miss something = you didn't do it

I missed my plane = I didn't catch my plane

I missed the show on TV = I didn't see it.

I missed him. = I didn't see/talk to him.

Miss out on something = lost the opportunity for something.

I missed out on (the opportunity of) being chosen for the school play = I was not chosen.

I missed out on (the opportunity of) going to France with the school. = I lost the chance to go.

Apparently they'll be giving away loads of free items. I'm going to get there early so I don't miss out.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I see. So in the original context, the difference is little, right?
I missed the show ( I didn't see it)
I missed out on the show ( I missed the opportunity to watch it)

Thanks, Optilang.
