So before we start, let’s get down to the very basics of explaining exactly what a Live Stream is and how it is utilised on the bet365 site.

What is a Live Stream?

In its simplest form a Live Stream is a way that a site can transmit or receive live video and audio coverage of any event using the Internet. Sports are popular live streaming events, as are esports tournaments but in theory any video and audio of anything could be live streamed over the Internet.

In terms of Live Streams at bet365, these refer to a total of more than 70,000 sporting events each year that the site will carry a live stream of for its customers.

Locating the Live Streaming service at bet365 Sport is very simple. Log into your account and then click on the Live Streaming tab near the top of the page underneath the tables for each of the bet365 gambling sites.

This then opens up the Live Streaming console where a full list of Live Streams that are available in your area are shown, together with the start time for any Live Streaming events due to start over the next couple of hours or so. You can scroll through these events as well as filter them to find the sports and events that you are most interested in.

From this console you can only view Live Streaming, but you can also click on a link which takes you to the In Play betting part of the site. Here you can view all the available Live Streams at bet365 at any one time and also the In Play betting markets that are available at each event.

Placing a bet using In Play on Live Streaming is simple. Just click on the odds as you would for any bet365 Sport bet you wish to make and this adds the selection to your bet slip. Remember though, the odds change frequently when In Play betting, so you will need to be quick to get your bet on at times before the odds on that bet change.

How can I access Live Streaming at bet365?

First of all, you need a device on which to access the bet365 Live Streaming service and the good news here is that you can use a desktop or laptop PC as well as a range of mobile devices to access both Live Streaming and In Play betting on the site.

One thing to note however if you are intending to use a mobile device, is that Live Streaming can use up a significant amount of data and this could be an issue if your connection is 3G/4G, rather than over a WiFi network. As such, if you are intending to Live Stream events to your mobile using your data, rather than WiFi, you will need to ensure your data plan matches your needs for this, so you avoid any potentially large mobile phone bills each month.

Assuming you are logged in to bet365 and ready to view a Live Stream then in order to view the Live Streaming service for free at bet365, then you need to have met one of two different criteria at the site.

  • You must have placed a bet at bet365 within the preceding 24-hour period prior to viewing the live stream.
  • Or, you need to have a credit balance in your account when you view a Live Stream at bet365.

If you are not a regular punter, then the simplest way to ensure you have Live Streaming services available to you at all times at bet365 is to leave a small amount of money in your account at all times. You can then log in and view Live Streams at any time.

Does this mean I can view every Live Stream at bet365?

Not quite, depending on which part of the world you are based in, due to other companies holding the rights to certain sporting events and competitions, some streams from bet365 may not be available in your country. However, you don’t have to worry about watching a stream illegally as bet365 will only offer the streams legally available to you in your place of residence at all times.

Furthermore, if you wish to view the stream of any horse race or greyhound race in the UK and Ireland, then you will need to place a bet on that particular race. The minimum bet is £0.50 for horse racing and £1.00 for greyhound racing. Once you have placed a bet, then a few minutes before the race is due to start, the Live Stream for that event will become available for you to watch.

You can also view any past races streamed on the site in the Racing Archive, a very useful tool for those who like to research the horses that they wish to back.

Given how easy and flexible Live Streaming and In Play betting is at bet365 Sport, it is not difficult to see why it has become a hugely popular part of the site. Why not give it a try today and see which out of the 70,000+ Live Streams a year are most suited to your preferred method of betting.
