WATCHING thoroughbred racing live has never been easier for punters.
Long gone are the days in which you could only get to watch racing on television, through an expensive cable subscription or at the pub.
Now, if you’re paying a cent to watch, you’re doing it all wrong.
Yes, some bookmakers already offer a limited live stream service of racing.
But there’s now a much more comprehensive service on offer.
No matter where you are in the world, be it at home or at the office, if you follow our guide, you’ll be able to watch every race for free – and all you’ll need is your smartphone, tablet or desktop.
It all starts with signing up at Sportsbet.com.au.
Live stream racing for free at Sportsbet
Sportsbet has access to SKY Racing 1 and SKY Racing 2 – providing unprecedented streaming access to its members.
Make no mistake, no other corporate online bookmaker provides free, unrestricted access to these racing channels.
All you have to do is sign-up at the bookmaker – which is completely free – and you’ll never miss a race again.
How will it work?
Sportsbet members will sign-in to their accounts and immediately have video access to live streaming for every race meeting of the day.
Each race will have a viewing button (like the one highlighted in the picture below).
When you click on the green viewing button, a pop-up window will guide you to a live stream of your race.
Thanks to Sportsbet’s access of SKY Racing 1 and SKY Racing 2, you will have a high definition picture that will work well on your phone, tablet or desktop and you’ll be able to navigate from SKY Racing 1 and SKY Racing 2 with ease, so you’ll never have to miss a race.
Punters should also take note, it’s not just Australian racing that you’ll be able to watch. SKY Racing also provides live vision of racing in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, South Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom, among others.
If you’re betting on it, no matter where it is, you’ll be able to watch it.
Can I stream live racing from overseas?
You’re going to need to check if you’re able to sign up at Sportsbet.com.au in our bookmaker review.
If your country is on the list of access, you will have no trouble streaming live racing.
If you’re not on the list, things can get a bit tricky.
The use of a VPN that blocks your IP address is an often-used option for situations like this. Alternatively, avoid using a smartphone or tablet app if you are an existing member overseas and stick to desktop use.
