Network 10 is pleased to announce it has extended its agreement with Dorna Sports to broadcast the premier motorcycle racing FIM World Championship, MotoGP for the next three years.
With the 2018 MotoGP Championship season nearing its end, the extension of the broadcast deal is a coup for Australian motorsport viewers.
The extended deal guarantees that every international MotoGP race will be available live and free on 10 Boss for the next three years.
It also guarantees that the Australian round of the MotoGP World Championship, including qualifying and the race, held at Victoria’s Phillip Island will be broadcast live and free on 10.
The comprehensive coverage will again feature pre-race and post-race expert analysis from former Grand Prix rider Daryl Beattie for all 19 races, which cover 16 countries and five continents.
Every MotoGP race, including the pre-race and post-race shows, will continue to be available via live streaming here.
Network 10, Head of Sport, Matt White, said: “Australian motorsport fans deserve to see this incredible racing category live and free and we are delighted to extend our broadcast deal with Dorna Sports for another three years.
“This deal further demonstrates Network 10’s commitment to premium sport.”
Network 10 CEO Paul Anderson said: “The MotoGP World Championship is part of our DNA and has proudly been on our Network for the past 21 years.
“MotoGP provides some of the most dramatic motor racing vision in the world and is a key plank in our motorsport strategy combining brilliantly with the Australian Formula One Grand Prix and the Bathurst 1000.
“With the Melbourne Cup, Network 10 will be the place to watch all of the big races that stop the nation in 2019.
“We have an incredible partnership with Dorna Sports and are very excited to be partnering once again and remaining the free to air home of motorsport in Australia.”
Dorna Sports managing director Manel Arroyo added: “It’s great news that MotoGP will remain on Network 10 in Australia, continuing our long and successful partnership that is now in its third decade.
“Network 10 provide excellent coverage of the World Championship and are valuable collaborators with whom we are delighted to continue working, so three more years is great news for Aussie fans and great news for MotoGP.”
Network 10 continues to be the home of big event motorsport in 2019, broadcasting the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, the biggest Virgin Australia Supercars Championship events including the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, and the popular motorsport show RPM, all live and free.
