MotoGP Live Stream and 2020 Australia Free Air TV Fixtures

MotoGP Grand Prix racing free to air TV fixtures list

The most popular motorcycle racing season in the world has revved into high gear, with nineteen exciting fixtures on this year’s MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 calendar – kicking off with the season-opener in Spain and ending with the closing event in Valencia in the same country. Marc Marquez is the defending title-holder, having secured his sixth MotoGP Riders’ Championship last year. He’s certain to be in the mix again, but he’ll have plenty of competition from the likes of former winner Valentino Rossi and last year’s runner-up Andrea Dovizioso.

As the race for the championship heats up, MotoGP fans want to know which networks are televising the weekend’s action, what time does each practice or qualifying session start, and how can you stream the featured races live? The answers to all these questions and more can be found in the viewing guide provided here.

2020 MotoGP TV Preview

The MotoGP World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the tens of millions, with every MotoGP Grand Prix live racing weekend offering a unique experience as the riders and teams compete for a place on the podium. There are currently a total of 18 fixtures stacked across this year’s calendar, given that the first two stops on the circuit, Qatar and Thailand, have been cancelled due to COVID-19 virus. As such the season opener will take place in Argentina in early April, continuing to the Finnish Grand Prix which returns after a 38 year absence in July, followed by a trip to the calendar scenic mountains of Austria in August, and concluding on the sandy beaches of Valencia, Spain in mid November.

Spain’s Marc Marquez is the defending Rider’s Champion, having won his sixth MotoGP World title in 2019 in dominant fashion. Andrea Dovizioso finished in second, though he was a long way behind Marquez, with Maverick Vinales taking third. With the win, Marquez became the first to win four consecutive Championships since Valentino Rossi accomplished the feat early this century. His dominant performance sees him favourite once again this year, but he’ll have a hoard of experienced riders, including Rossi, Dovizioso and Lorenzo, chasing him throughout.

How to Watch MotoGP in Australia

Here in 2020, Fox Sports of Australia, (Foxtel/Kayo) will once again have the broadcast rights to all MotoGP category races including Moto2 and Moto3, and will televise every practise, qualifying session and featured race live. This includes all 20 MotoGP World Championship events LIVE, in HD, with no ad-breaks from lights on to the chequered flag. Fox Sports, via Foxtel and Kayo, will also provide expert commentary, as well as comprehensive pre-race and post-race analysis.

This coverage begins with the very first championship race of the season, and continues until the finale to be held in November. Fortunately for MotoGP fans there are several options for watching Fox Sports in Australia, including a TV channel pack from Foxtel or Telstra, the online platform Foxtel Now, and the newest addition, live streaming with Kayo Sports who are currently offering a free trial.

If a subscription service or trial pack isn’t the route you wish to go, the MotoGP Free to air coverage on Network Ten in Australia includes every featured MotoGP Grand Prix, for a total of ninety minutes of live action for each fixture on the 2020 calendar. Currently, the network is in the midst of a three-year broadcast agreement to maintain its title as the Australian free to air home of the MotoGP, and each Grand Prix is available to watch live on 10 Boss or online with TenPlay. The channel Ten coverage does not, however, include Moto2, Moto3, or the ultra-important MotoGP practices and qualifying sessions. The lone exception is the MotoGP of Australia, for which 10 Boss will televise both the Qualifying race and Grand Prix live.

** FIM announces MOTOGP Postponements **

The FIM has announced that the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 classes will not be holding any events until at the Spanish Grand Prix (May 1-3) at the earliest. This means that the 2020 Thailand, Americas and Argentina racing weekends have been postponed until later in the season. The reason for this is the COVD-19 coronavirus, and concerns that circuits and travel may expose drivers and fans to this community health concern. If any significant new details are made available, this notice will include them and the TV fixtures will be updated.
