What Live Streaming does bet365 offer?

Bet365 offers a wide range of Live Streaming services to its customers across a number of different sports. You can view the Live Streams in a console as a standalone sports event, or you can also bring up the Live Streams in the In Play betting section, allowing you to bet on the stream as you view it.

Sports which bet365 regularly offers Live Streaming for are as follows:

  • Football
  • Tennis
  • eSports
  • Badminton
  • Snooker
  • Darts
  • Volleyball
  • Cricket
  • Basketball
  • Handball
  • Table Tennis
  • Ice Hockey
  • Netball

The list is not exhaustive and bet365 Sport can and do carry other sporting events on Live Streams from time to time and have increased the number of events shown hugely over the past few years.

Is Live Streaming free to view at bet365 Sport?

Yes, Live Streaming is free to view at bet365 Sport, but there are a couple of criteria, one of which you must have met, in order to view the Live Streams. They are:

  • You must have placed a bet at bet365 Sport within the past 24 hours of the live stream you want to watch or
  • You must have a credit balance in your account

If you are a punter that does not bet every day, then the easiest way to ensure that you never miss a Live Stream at bet365 is to always have a small amount of money left in your bet365 account. That way you will always have all the Live Streams available on the site.

The only exceptions to these rules concern the live streams available for UK and Irish based horseracing and greyhound racing. In these events, you need to have placed a bet of at least £0.50 (in the case of horse racing) or £1.00 (in the case of a greyhound race) in order to view the stream.

Once your bet is placed, a few minutes before the race is set to start, the Live Stream to that race will be made available, which you can then click on and view.

Are there any restrictions on the Live Streams bet365 can offer?

Yes there are, depending on where you live. Bet365 can only offer live streams that is permitted to do so in countries around the world and that means that if a sporting event, tournament or competition has an existing broadcasting deal with another company, such as the Premier League’s broadcasting rights deals with BT Sport and Sky Sports, then bet365 may not be able to show these live streams in the countries where such deals are in place.

The good news however, is that with over 70,000 live streams every year on the site, there are still many thousands of events every month that you can view at bet365.

How well integrated is Live Streaming and In Play betting at bet365?

The In Play betting section and the Live Streams contained therein are superbly integrated on bet365 Sport. It is extremely easy to find a massive choice of In Play betting markets to bet on, or you can view the Live Streams available easily (sorted handily by the different sports available) and then you can also view the In Play markets on these events to bet on the event as it is in progress.

In truth, betting In Play on Live Streaming at bet365 Sport is as simple as placing a standard bet. You even make the bet in the same way, by clicking on the odds of your selection to add it to the bet slip and then entering your stake and clicking Place Bet.

The only thing to remember with In Play betting is that due to the nature of the event, the odds may change quickly on your selections, so you will need to place the bet more quickly than you would if you were placing a pre-match bet, as the odds on your selection may change in the time between you selecting it and then you clicking the Place Bet button.

Can I bet In Play and watch Live Streams on my mobile?

Yes, you can access both the Live Streaming and In Play betting services at bet365 Sport from a wide range of mobile smartphones and tablets, including Android and Apple (iOS) devices.

Viewing Live Streams and betting In Play is accessed on a mobile in the same way it is the website, by logging into your account and then navigating to the section of the site that you want. Remember, you still need to meet the same two criteria to view the free Live Streams at bet365

The only thing to check before you access either service from your mobile or tablet, is what the current plan is for your mobile phone, specifically in terms of how much data you can use each month as part of your plan. Live Streaming, because it is both a video and an audio stream, can chew through a lot of data in a short time, and if you plan to use a 3G or 4G connection to access Live Streaming rather than WiFi, then this could eat through your allotted data quickly.

As such, if you are not going to be using WiFi to access Live Streaming regularly, then it is a sensible idea to contact your mobile contract company and ensure that your plan matches the requirements for your Live Streaming needs.

Provided you do this and fulfil the criteria to watch Live Streams, you can now sit back and enjoy one of the best Live Streaming and In Play betting services available on the Internet, for free, all thanks to being a bet365 Sport customer.
