MotoGP signs four-year extension with Network4 in Hungary

Luxembourg-based broadcaster retains exclusive rights for MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, and MotoE.

MotoGP has signed a four-year broadcast rights extension with Network4 Media Group in Hungary.

Confirmed:

  • Network4 will continue to hold exclusive rights for MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE until 2027
  • Any future races in Hungary will be available on free-to-air (FTA) TV

Context:

Luxembourg-based Network4 Media Group has held the broadcast rights for the global motorcycling series since 2020, with the Arena4 and Match4 linear channels and the Net4+ streaming platform offering coverage.  

Comment:

Alex Arroyo, head of media rights at Dorna Sports, said: “We’re very happy to extend our partnership with Network4. Hungary is an important market and home to our reserve venue next season as just a first step, with plans already announced to race at the Hungaroring from 2025. We know that with Network4 our Hungarian audience will continue to get top quality coverage, and new fans joining the sport – as audiences continue to increase – will have a fantastic broadcast waiting for them when they tune in.”

Coming next:

With the deal starting from the 2024 season, the contract also covers the first year that Balaton Park in Hungary joins the calendar – although only as a reserve venue. From 2025, MotoGP plans to return to the Hungaroring in Budapest. Any races in Hungary during this four-year agreement will be offered on the FTA Max4 channel in the country.
