Like many sports, MotoGP was decimated by the coronavirus outbreak. The season-opening Qatar Grand Prix set for 8 March was cancelled. The schedule has since been totally revamped, with 13 races now planned instead of the original 20. The Australian GP is among those that will not be held this year.

The Spanish GP at Jerez gets things re-started on 19 July and Spain is hosting 7 of the 13 races for 2020 at various tracks. The Czech Republic, Austria, San Marino and France are also hosting grands prix.

The new venues surely just make Spaniard Marc Márquez an even hotter favourite to add another title to his burgeoning collection. Márquez has won six of the past seven world championships on his Repsol Honda, including four straight.

Valentino Rossi is saddling up once more with Yamaha, while Andrea Dovizioso, Danilo Petrucci, Álex Rins and Maverick Viñales all enjoyed race wins in 2019. Once again, Jack Miller will be the sole Australian on the MotoGP grid on his Ducati. Compatriot Remy Gardner, son of former 500cc world champion Wayne Gardner, is competing in Moto2.

The championship is slated to conclude in Valencia with back-to-back races in November. If you're eager to tune in, there's plenty of coverage on both free-to-air and pay TV for you to enjoy. Here's how you can watch MotoGP in Australia on TV or via live stream.

Where to watch the 2020 MotoGP

In Australia, Network 10 is providing limited live coverage of the 2020 MotoGP season on 10Bold. If you're eager to watch all of the action, including practice and qualifying sessions, you'll have to invest in a pay TV subscription. Let's compare all of your options.

Live stream MotoGP on Kayo Sports

If you want to experience every moment of the 2020 MotoGP season, Kayo Sports is your best bet. The live sports streaming service covers over 50 sports and comes with a host of unique features that are sure to appeal to sports fans.

Besides a mammoth library of sports content live and on-demand, Kayo Sports also enables users to stream up to four events on the same screen with the SplitView feature. You can avoid spoilers for a certain game thanks to the No Spoilers setting or use Key Moments to watch only the best bits. There's a great Netflix-like user interface, too, and plenty more to explore.

Kayo Sports also live streams all MotoGP category races, including Moto2 and Moto3, as well as every practice, qualifying session and race. It also has every race from other motorsport championships such as Formula 1 and V8 Supercars, so it's an essential option for true motorsport fans.

Kayo Sports costs $25/month for a Basic subscription, which lets you stream on two screens at the same time. Or it has a Premium subscription, which supports three simultaneous streams for $35/month.

For new users, Kayo Sports offers a 14-day free trial. The service is compatible with PCs, Macs, smartphones, tablets, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Sony Bravia TV, Samsung TV (2017 models or later) and Telstra TV.

Watch MotoGP live on Foxtel

Like Kayo Sports, Foxtel iQ is broadcasting every round of the MotoGP Championship live, including the practice and qualifying sessions, as well as the race itself. You'll need a Foxtel pay TV subscription and then you'll need to add the Sport pack ($29/month) to the Foxtel Plus package ($49/month) to tune in. At a monthly cost of $74/month, it's much more expensive than Kayo Sports if you only want access to sports content. Once that's done, you can watch MotoGP live on TV or stream races to your mobile device/laptop with the Foxtel GO app. The app is free for all Foxtel clients.

Another option for those eager to keep up with everything MotoGP-related is Foxtel Now, the pay TV giant's live streaming platform. It enables you to watch Foxtel content live and on-demand, so it may be a worthy alternative to the traditional pay TV subscription.

To watch MotoGP live, you will need to add the Sport pack, which costs $29/month, to the base Essential pack, which is $25/month. This does mean you get access to a lot of great non-sport content as well, but it does cost $54/month and you don't get the user interface or viewing features of Kayo Sports.

Thankfully, Foxtel Now offers new subscribers a 10-day free trial. The service is compatible with iOs and Android devices, PCs, Macs, Chromecast, Airplay, Sony Android TV, PS4, Telstra TV, Samsung TV (2017 models or later) and the Foxtel Now box.
