Bet365 Live Streaming

As bet365 were the first bookmakers to offer online streaming of live sporting events, it is fair to say they have good experience in providing the service, and it shows. The UK based company provides an unbelievable amount of sports from around the world for their customers to enjoy with nigh-on 30,000 events being shown each year.

Did you know that Bet365 were the first bookmakers to offer Online Streaming of live sporting events? Its fair to say that they set the benchmark which other bookies have tried to emulate but if its experience and reliability in a sports streaming service you’re after then these guys are pretty hard to beat.

One of the big plusses about bet365’s service is that customers do not need to bet on an event to view it as is the case on other sites. As long as a customer has a funded bet365 account (minimum deposit of £5.00) then they can watch any of the live events on offer on the site. Even if your account has as little as a penny sitting in it then the streams are available.

The range is quite staggering as punters can watch anything from handball to badminton to snooker to table tennis from around the globe throughout the day. There is also more football than you could hope to watch with around 50 matches streamed live at weekends along with rugby, cricket and every single horse race from around the UK.

It is clear to see which events are shown live on the regular betting page before heading to the live streaming player as there is a video logo next to those contests. The live streaming obviously encourages in-play betting as well and any contest that is live will show a yellow watch icon by it.

Live Streaming For Devices

The live streaming is also available on iphone, ipad or android devices so as long as you have an internet connection you can make the most of the fantastic range of sports wherever you are.

If you don't have an account yet, you can of course register for the latest bet365 opening account offer (18+, Ts & Cs Apply). Any fixture/event on our website which has the Play or Video icon next to it is scheduled to be shown via Live Streaming.

Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365. Min deposit £5 and 1x settled bet requirement to release Bet Credits. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply. 18+ Only

In terms of the player itself there is an option to watch live action on the main site in the in-play section although the picture is very small. It is much more effective to go into the pop-up player where the picture cannot be made full screen but it is of reasonable size and the picture is normally very good.

All in all it is a fabulous service for viewing sports from all over the planet that would not usually be available to view on television. The fact that it costs the customer nothing is incredibly good as well although of course it is more than likely that many will be tempted in to have a little flutter whilst watching.

The way we place bets has changed so much in recent years. Another massive difference in our gambling life – particularly online – is the way we can follow the bets that we make. Live streaming has been one of the most important additions to online gambling that has taken place. Imagine you’ve placed a bet on an overseas football game that’s taking place at 1am. In the past, it would have been a case of placing the bet, convincing ourselves it really is going to be a winner and then going to bed for a good night’s sleep because the ability to watch the event online or offline just wasn’t there.

The revolution began with the ability to be able to go online and actually have the ability to follow the live score. Even if there was no live stream to watch, this still added excitement to our betting. You were able to find out exactly how your selection was getting on and make further in-play bets if necessary. However, the experience has become even better since the introduction of live streaming.

Being able to know the score and gauge how your bet is progressing is great, but what if you could actually watch the game?  Well that’s possible now with many of the top online bookmakers

They say ‘live streaming’ but there’s still usually a slight time delay which can be between ten and thirty seconds. You might just notice that often the score for the match and bet365 betting odds will change before the vital point is won or a goal scored. Seeing the betting suspended tends to indicate that something important is about to happen.

Being able to watch live streaming of sports events is really important. We live in an age when there are plenty of subscriptions needed to be able to watch top quality sports events. It’s a great fact therefore that we can watch big sporting events online through entities like bet365.

You do usually have to be a member of the online site to be able to watch the live streaming. That’s no hardship though as there’s no charge made to join leading online gambling sites.
A number of different sporting events can be seen live online. Football and horse racing are the main sports covered on bet365 for example but you can also see tennis, basketball, ice-hockey, volleyball, darts and rugby. Websites will have a calendar of events that are being streamed live on their site.

It’s not always the case that the sporting event being shown is a top calibre one but more and more sites are becoming able to show live streams of top sporting events. In a world that’s dominated by expensive television rights there are some restrictions on what viewers in certain countries can watch. Don’t expect Skybet to allow you to watch the latest big game free on their betting site. Other top leagues also have exclusive deals with television companies.

Some countries don’t have licensing deals signed up so being able to watch top matches online won’t be such a problem. There’s still plenty of soccer action available from top league such as La Liga, the Bundesliga and Serie A. In the early hours you can watch live action being streamed from South America and the MLS plus top tennis matches from around the globe
It’s a lot easier for horse racing fans though. Back in the 1970s I used to go into our local bookies and have a bet on the horse racing. There were no fancy screens with the latest odds being written on race cards. The only time that I got to see a race was if it was being shown on terrestrial television. Listening to an often crackly commentary just wasn’t quite the same. 

Now it’s possible to watch races that normally you wouldn’t see if you weren’t subscribing to Racing UK or At The Races. Simply placing a bet of £1 on the race allows you access to the race. Now that really makes betting on horses exciting. Not just for the race you’re betting on but for the future too. Being able to see the race allows you to see all the action and spot the horses that might not have won this time but run like future winners. There’s also overseas action and you can follow greyhound racing from all over the UK.

As well as being able to see selected games live, there’s also the option of following the live action without actually seeing the game. Several leading bookmakers allow you to ‘see’ what’s happening particularly in football. You get information on where the ball is and if teams have safe possession, are on an attack, on a dangerous attack or a corner etc. That can really get your heart beating faster without seeing a ball all night.

Live streaming really has improved the service available to online gamblers. What’s better than spending an evening having a good old gamble and watching live soccer being streamed online. Of course it’s even better if you get some winners too and thanks to the live streaming you’ll see those vital goals going in to add to your pleasant memories.
