MotoGP New Broadcast Deals, Documentary Series

Global motorcycling series, MotoGP, announced a number of key broadcast and media rights deals in the lead-up to its opening weekend this past weekend.

The commercial rights holder for MotoGP, Dorna Sports, announced a five-year media rights deal with Chinese sports streaming platform, Zhibo.tv, covering MotoGP, the Moto2, Moto3, and electric series, Moto E.

The deal will see the coverage shown in a multi-view accessible function on Zhibo.tv’s website, with highlight packages and analysis to be shared across Zhibo.tv’s social media platforms.

Elsewhere, REV TV is set to broadcast the 2021 series in Canada after signing a new partnership with Dorna Sports ahead of the opening event, the Qatar Grand Prix.

Dorna Sports is also currently reportedly finalising plans to deliver its own documentary series on Amazon Prime Video, similar to the Formula One’s (F1) Drive to Survive series on Netflix.

The news was first reported by Motorsport.com, who revealed a working group from Mediapro, the production company behind the series, was in Qatar for the opening two rounds and has begun filming exclusive content.

The documentary would reportedly follow a similar format of behind-the-scenes content, with each episode revolving around different characters in the grid.

The documentary series would be the first MotoGP mainstream documentary release since 2015’s Hitting the Apex.
