The 2019 GoPro British Grand Prix MotoGP will take place at Silverstone, England from 23–25 August, over the course of the August Bank Holiday weekend. Whether you were unable to get tickets for the event, or will simply be abroad this August, we’ll show you how to watch this year’s British MotoGP online for free, with the help of a VPN.
We’ll only be covering official sources for watching the 2019 British Grand Prix MotoGP. The reason for this is that unlicensed streams are often unreliable, with poor picture quality and severe lag. Worse still, unauthorized streams can be shut down without warning, which could prevent you from watching the British Grand Prix at all.
To live stream the British Grand Prix MotoGP for free you’ll need a VPN unless you’re in Australia.
How to watch the British MotoGP free online
There are a few ways in which you can watch the MotoGP 2019 online. However, most require a VPN in order to watch from abroad. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
Using a VPN to watch the MotoGP 2019 online
- Sign up with a suitable VPN service. We recommend ExpressVPN, although NordVPN and CyberGhost are both great value alternatives.
- Download and install the appropriate VPN app or browser extension for your device.
- Open the VPN app or browser extension and connect to a server in Australia.
- Clear your browser’s cache and cookies. This ensures the website forgets your true IP address and accepts the Australian IP address of the VPN.
- Now go to the 10Play website. This is free-to-use and you don’t need to sign up for an account in order to watch live TV. If you’re still unable to access the site, try a different server or contact your VPN’s support team for further assistance.
How to watch British Grand Prix for free on Australian TV
An Australian free-to-air channel, 10 Bold holds the rights to broadcast races until 2021. Fortunately, 10 Bold has its own online streaming service, 10Play, which means Australian viewers can watch the GoPro British Grand Prix live online. What’s more, you can do so for free, without having to sign up for an account.
You should note that, in order to watch any on-demand content (race replays, for instance), you will have to sign up. This requires you to enter your email address, password, name, gender, date of birth, and a postcode (although any Australian postcode will do). While you can stream both live and on-demand content with a free 10Play account, a paid subscription exists ($9.99 AUD per month) which allows you to watch ad-free.
If you’re outside Australia, you can unblock and stream the British Grand Prix MotoGP without cable using one of the best VPNs for Australia. We recommend ExpressVPN: it includes a 30-day money-back guarantee, meaning you can try it out risk-free.
Where else can I stream British Grand Prix MotoGP live online?
You can watch MotoGP online in dozens of countries worldwide, including the following:
BT Sport holds the rights to show MotoGP live in the UK until 2021. If you’re already a BT Sports customer, you’ll be able to stream the GoPro British Grand Prix MotoGP live online.
There are a number of ways you can get BT Sport. First, it can be added to an existing BT TV package (prices start at £39.99 per month) for an extra £10 per month. If you’re a Sky TV or TalkTalk TV customer, you can add BT Sport for £29.99 a month, without being required to have BT Broadband.
Fans in the UK can also catch the highlights of each round on Quest TV. This free channel is part of the Discovery network and has secured the right to air 2019 MotoGP highlights for free every Monday at 6PM. While Quest won’t be showing the action live, you can watch its coverage online via TVPlayer.com. This service is completely free-to-use, although you will have to create an account before you can watch anything.
As has been the case since 2016, BeIN Sports will be providing live coverage of the 2019 British Grand Prix MotoGP in the US. All you have to do is sign in with a supported cable provider. Alternatively, BeIN Sports can be accessed via streaming services such as FuboTV ($54.99 USD/month) and PlayStation Vue (from $49.99 USD/month).
Watching BeIN Sports via a streaming service using a VPN is your best bet if you’re outside the US. Another advantage is that such services typically offer a free trial which means you can watch the British Grand Prix MotoGP for free, as long as you cancel your account before the trial ends.
The only broadcaster showing the British Grand Prix in France is Canal+. You can watch by logging in via your Orange or Free account. If you’re not an existing customer, you can also sign up directly, with subscriptions costing €19.90 per month. Canal+ comes with a one-month trial period, meaning you can stream the 2019 British Grand Prix MotoGP free online. However, this service is region-locked which means you’ll need a VPN for a French IP address in order to access it.
Sports streaming service DAZN launched in Spain in 2019 with the announcement that it had been awarded the Spanish broadcasting rights for MotoGP. The price of a DAZN subscription in Spain is €4.99 a month. Furthermore, it includes a one-month free trial which means you could watch the GoPro British Grand Prix online for free. DAZN is notoriously difficult to unblock, however, meaning this likely won’t be an option for anyone looking to watch the British Grand Prix from abroad.
Is there an option that’s available in most countries?
10Play is the easiest way for most people to watch the 2019 British Grand Prix. It’s free, and with a VPN, you can stream the Silverstone MotoGP from anywhere in the world.
However, another option is to sign up for a 2019 Season VideoPass with MotoGP.com. This lets you watch races live and on-demand and is available in most locations (although prices vary by country). At the time of writing, there’s a 50% discount on the signup page as the MotoGP season is already well underway.
Can I use a free VPN to watch British Grand Prix MotoGP?
While there are a number of ways in which you can watch the British Grand Prix MotoGP online, we can’t guarantee that free VPNs will work reliably with any of the services above. That’s because free VPNs usually struggle to bypass anti-VPN measures, particularly the kind used by popular streaming services like Netflix and DAZN. Worse still, free VPNs are often very slow, which makes streaming live sports events particularly frustrating.
Free VPNs also tend to lack proper security features. For instance, they might not use encryption to secure your data or a kill switch to prevent data leaks. Further, some free VPNs have been known to make money by selling details of your browsing history to third parties, compromising your online privacy. To stay safe online, it’s important to find a VPN that offers strong security features as well as a true no-logs policy.
What should I know about the British Grand Prix MotoGP?
The first British Grand Prix MotoGP took place in 1977 at Silverstone. The event moved to Donington Park in 1987, but it returned to Silverstone in 2010.
Silverstone announced a three-year deal to host the races in 2018, 2019, and 2020. However, the 2018 race was canceled due to adverse weather conditions. The most successful rider in the British Grand Prix is Italy’s Valentino Rossi who has won a total of eight titles (most recently in 2015).
Who is the favorite to win the British Grand Prix MotoGP?
Spain’s Marc Márquez is, at the time of writing, the heavy favorite to win the 2019 British Grand Prix. His first ever podium was at the 2008 British Grand Prix and he later went on to win the event in 2014. Both Andrea Dovizioso (Italy) and Jorge Lorenzo (Spain) have 4 titles to their name. In particular, Dovizioso is one to watch having won the British Grand Prix in 2017. Lorenzo is likely to be returning from injury in time for the event.
