MUMBAI: Ten Sports Network has secured
exclusive rights for MotoGP the premier world
championship for motorcycle road racing. As was
first reported by Indiantelevision.com, this is for
the first time that MotoGP will be broadcast
exclusively by a broadcaster in the Indian sub-
continent.

This new deal between Taj TV and MotoGP rights
holders Dorna Sports will run for a period of five
seasons starting 2015. As a part of this deal, Ten
Sports will broadcast all MotoGP, Moto2 and
Moto3 races and qualifying practices live on its
network of six channels. Ten Sports will also be
offering multi-screen feeds on its digital
platforms and will develop a dedicated section
on Ten Sports official website - Get Ten Sports channels program schedules, latest score, news, expert analysis about matches, sports videos online at Te... .

Ten Sports CEO Rajesh Sethi said, “We are very
excited to embark on this new journey with
Dorna. We are committed to building this
property in India over the next five years and
viewers will witness unprecedented
programming initiatives on our network. We
have also been rights holders for this premium
property since 2006 and we are delighted to
continue and take this partnership to the next
level.”

Dorna Sports managing director Manel Arroyo
added, “We are thrilled about our exclusive
partnership with Taj TV and looking forward to
developing a close relationship with them. India
is a key market in the coming years and the
World Championship will benefit greatly from
the extensive promotion that Taj has committed
to provide.”

The 2015 MotoGP season begins in Qatar on 27
March with the first of 18 races in the 2015
calendar. The 2015 rider line up is stronger and
more competitive than ever with defending
champion Marc Marquez looking to retain his
title over rivals Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo
and Dani Pedrosa amongst others.

Ten Sports will run contests to send fans to
witness live action from the best races.
Promotional events are being planned in the
territory as well. From a programming
standpoint, there will be new shows around
races with Ten Sports also looking to add a local
flavour by creating Indian-focused programming
for a few events.
