Watch German MotoGP on Kayo Sports
If you want to experience every moment of the 2022 MotoGP season, Kayo Sports is your best bet. It 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 F1 and V8 Supercars, so it's an essential option for true motorsport fans.
Besides a mammoth library of sports content live and on-demand, Kayo Sports also enables users to stream up to 4 events on the same screen with the SplitView feature. You can avoid spoilers for certain events thanks to the No Spoilers setting or use Key Moments to watch only the best bits.
Subscriptions to Kayo start from $25 a month and that lets you watch on 1 device at a time. If you're after more simultaneous streams, the Basic package at $27.50 a month allows 2 while the Premium package has up to 3 at once for $35 a month.
For new users, Kayo Sports offers a 14-day free trial, meaning you could watch the German MotoGP at no cost.

Stream German MotoGP on Foxtel
Like Kayo, 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 currently the Sports HD pack is $74 a month with no lock-in contract. It's 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 customers.
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 to the base Essential pack. The standard cost is $54 a month, but you get access to a lot of great non-sport content as well. However, again if you only want sport, Kayo is cheaper. You don't get the user interface or viewing features of Kayo. There is currently a deal for Foxtel Now where if you sign up for 12 months, you can get the Sports Plus pack for $29 a month.
Foxtel Now offers new subscribers a 10-day free trial, offering another way to watch the German MotoGP at no cost.
German MotoGP race preview
This track in Germany is one of the shortest on the MotoGP tour and also historically one of the slowest, which makes for an interesting tactical battle.
Defending champion Marc Marquez, a man who has dominated this track over the years, will be absent due to ongoing injury concerns, meaning a new winner will be crowned in Germany.
Frenchman and season leader Quartararo was outstanding at the Catalan GP and must clearly be at the top of the predictions.
The tighter turns and long straights do perhaps allow Yamaha to perform strongly here as well. It will be an intriguing battle.
