All the In Play Soccer Betting You Could Ever Need With Live Streaming at Bet365 Sport


We all know that bet365 Sport is a fantastic option when it comes to football betting. There is nothing better than tuning in to watch a game live on TV, knowing you have made a bet with the bookmaker and seeing how the game turns out and whether your bet is a winner.

There’s certainly a great deal more excitement when watching a game having placed a bet on it, but did you know that you can tune in to many more live football games than you can get from even the most comprehensive TV and Satellite services?

If you want to enjoy all the soccer betting you could shake a stick at from competitions taking place all over the world, then you need to start with a site that not only offers extensive football markets, but also a great value bonus to entice you to sign up. Well, that is precisely what you get with the current bet365 New Player Welcome Bonus.

Bet365 Sport Open Account Offer

Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365.

Min deposit £5. Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply.

However, it is not just that which is available on the site. Sure, your welcome offer will get you started very nicely on site with your football betting, but when it comes to really having access to the full range of football bets available, you need to acquaint yourself with two other key aspects of the bet365 site.

The first is the In Play betting section and within that the Streaming section of the site, although you can more easily access the soccer extra page for live streaming by clicking on the link.

What do I need to know about live streaming?

There are two key things that you need to know about the live streaming offerings on bet365 and we will come to them a little later. There are thousands of sports events taking place each month across the globe that bet365 has live streams available for.

The live streams cover a multitude of different sports events and the coverage sits very nicely in with the In Play betting for that event, which makes betting on what you are watching as easy as you can get.

However, what sports fixtures are live streamed and available to you and whether you can actually view any of the live streams depends on a couple of factors:

  • Geo-Restrictions Apply.

The first thing to note is that depending on where you are in the world, there will be certain geographic restrictions in place which determine what bet365 can and cannot show as a live stream on their service.

For example, in the UK, bet365 cannot live stream any matches from the Premier League or Football League as they do not possess the rights to do this in the UK. However, in other countries, bet365 may be able to show streams of these games to customers based there.

The good news for customers is that geo-restrictions are applied automatically, so there is no chance you could view a stream you are not supposed to.

  • You must have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the previous 24 hours to view Live Streams

Bet365 stipulates that only customers that have placed a bet inside the past 24-hour period, or that have funds in their bet365 Sport account, are eligible to view the free live streams available on site.

The only issue here is if you are a punter that perhaps deposits £10 into your account and then spends that full £10 each time, leaving your account empty the rest of the time. If you do this, then other than the 24-hour period from when you place your bet, the Live Streaming service would not be available to you.

However, there is a very simple workaround to this and that is to always leave some money in your bet365 Sport account and you can access the Live Streaming service at any time, regardless of whether you have placed a bet. It doesn’t need to be a large amount of money, just so long as you have a credit balance, you can tune in at any time once you have logged in to the site.

What Live Streaming fixtures are coming up at bet365 Sport?

In the screenshot below, you can see that there are a number of games from different competitions across Europe that are being live streamed this week on bet365 Sport. This includes games in the Spanish Primera Liga, the German DFB Pokal (which is the German equivalent of the FA Cup) as well as the Coppa Italia (Italian Cup).

UK customers only need to log into their bet365 accounts at the time shown and they can then tune in to watch these games via the Live Streaming service. Of course, there are also plenty of In Play betting options going to be available for all of these games.

Remember too, there are a huge number of other live streamed events for other sports available on bet365, so you can use the service to keep abreast of all the other action you are interested in across a wide range of sports.

Can I Live Stream Horse Racing in the UK and Ireland?

If you are a keen bettor on the horses, then you may want to keep up with how any selections you have backed are doing via a live stream of the race. The good news here is that you can do this at bet365 Sport.

While you cannot freely view any horse race on live streaming, you can view any race from the UK and Ireland where you have placed a bet with bet365 of £0.50 or greater on one of the markets on that race. Once your bet has been placed, a live streaming option for the race will appear on the site just before the race is due to start.

Click on this and you can then watch how the race unfolds. There is no limit on how many races you can view on live streaming at bet365, the only proviso is that you must have bet at least £0.50 on that race in order to be able to view it.

Between them, bet365’s Live Streaming and In Play betting services offer a whole new dimension for punters seeking to keep up with the latest sporting action and to enjoy as many different types of betting as is available. Just remember the simple tips outlined above and you can utilise the live streaming services at bet365 all the time, whether you choose to make a bet or not.
