MotoGP TV deal extended in Australia

Fox Sports has extended its broadcast rights for both MotoGP and World Superbike in Australia for a further two years and three years respectively.

Australian MotoGP fans will continue to be able to watch every practice session, qualifying session, and race live and ad-free from the premier class, Moto2, and Moto3 for the next two seasons.

World Superbike and the Supersport World Championship races, as well as the WSBK Superpole session, will be shown live for the next three seasons.

We have seen plenty of great racing across this year’s MotoGP and World Superbikes, with the highlight being Aussie star Jack Miller claiming his maiden MotoGP race win.

“Today’s announcement is fantastic news for motorsport fans who will continue to enjoy the most comprehensive coverage of both championships on Australian TV,” said Fox Sports CEO Patrick Delany.

“Add to this line-up live coverage of every Supercars and Formula 1 race and there has never been a better time to be a motorsport fan.”

Manel Arroyo, Dorna Sports Managing Director Media & TV Area, also confirmed that Network Ten will continue its free-to-air coverage of MotoGP.

"We’re thrilled that MotoGP and World Superbike will remain with Fox Sports in Australia, and that Network Ten are onboard with MotoGP once again,” said Arroyo.

“It is fantastic news for Australian fans of motorcycle racing to see such incredible coverage of both championships for two more seasons.

“With a new Australian race winner on the MotoGP grid and the future of MotoGP and WorldSBK at Phillip Island confirmed, these renewals are the perfect final piece in the puzzle as passion for motorcycle racing continues to reach new heights in Australia.”
