Betting Sites That Offer Live Streaming Horse Racing
How To Watch Live Streaming Horse Races
Watching the live stream of a horse race is realtively straight forward. All you need is a computer, an account at one of the betting sites above and a horse you fancy in the race.
Watching the races is free at all of the sites we’ve listed, however you will need to place a bet on the race you want to watch. The minimum amount you have to bet varies between betting sites but is as low as 50p (this is total stake, so 25p each way is sufficient).
Once you have placed your bet you can start the live stream, although coverage generally doesn’t start until 5 seconds before the start of the race. Accessing the stream is usually via the race card where there will be a TV icon or a ‘watch now’ button at the top.
One important thing to note is that you must watch the race from the computer that you placed the bet – this is because the digital rights to watch the race are assigned to your computer when the bet is placed. So make sure the computer you use to place the bet is the one you want to us to watch the race.
Many of the betting sites listed above also have mobile apps that let you watch horse races on the go!
