How To Stream Horse Racing Online

If you bet on horse racing regularly, then it’s great to be able to watch the races live. Not only will this add to the excitement of having a bet on the race but you’ll also be able to see how your horse and the other runners perform which can help with any bets you have on them in future races. 

One of the most popular ways to watch racing online is via bookmaker accounts. Many of which have horse racing live streams. By streaming racing with a bookie, you’re able to place bets and watch the race all in the same place and there are several other advantages too. 

Not all bookmakers offer live streaming and for those that do, they may not offer horse racing streams. However, many of the top UK bookies do with the most popular choices being the likes of Bet365, Paddy Power, Betfred, William Hill and Betfair.

Can You Stream Horse Racing For Free? 

Although bookmakers don’t directly charge customers to access the live racing streams, the vast majority of them require a bet to be placed on the race that you want to watch. This is usually in the region of £0.50 - £2 but varies between bookies. However, the exception is Paddy Power who is 2020, announced that they were to offer free horse racing streams to their customers. All that is required is a Paddy Power account and no qualifying bet needs to be placed to watch the races. Every race that is taking place within the UK and Ireland can be streamed for free both via the Paddy Power website and the app. 

Taking Advantage Of Racing Offers 

Another advantage of being able to bet on and stream horse races with a bookmaker is that you’ll be able to take advantage of the various betting offers that are available. Many of the top bookies offer Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK & Irish races which is an offer that should be high on your list if you bet on racing regularly. There are also several other commonly found racing offers available daily such as Extra Places and Money Back if 2nd. 

Stream Racing On The Go 

With races in the UK taking place throughout the day and week, it’s not always possible to be at home when the races are on. However, any respectable bookmaker will have a website that is optimised for mobile devices and many of them have dedicated mobile apps that you can download for free from the app stores. Racing streams are available both via the websites and apps meaning that you can watch the races on your smartphone, tablet or other mobile devices wherever you are so long as you have an internet connection. 

What Other Sports Can You Stream With A Bookmaker? 

Horse racing isn’t the only other sport that you’re able to stream with a bookmaker and there are often dozens more available. 

The sports and events that are available to be streamed will depend on the bookmaker but some of the most common include Football, Tennis, American Football, Table Tennis, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Darts, Ice Hockey, Rugby, Snooker and many others.
