10 Important Questions Answered About Live Streaming at Bet365

Bet365 Sport has had a Live Streaming service for a good while now. However, many people radically underestimate just how detailed the live streaming options are at the site.

And some punters may not be clear on how they can access them.

In this post, we are going to take a closer look at what we believe THE best Live Streaming betting service that you can find anywhere online.

To explain why this service is so good, we are going to look at five reasons why you should use bet365 Sport Live Streaming more often.

This will include a look at what it offers in terms of the breadth and range of sports, its use in partnership with the sites’ In Play betting markets and how it can become your own additional sports channel for literally, just a few pence.

That’s not a few pence every month, that is a few pence for the lifetime on the bet365 family of sites (and you can even withdraw that money back!).

So, if this sounds like something you would like to know more about, then read on through the following ten questions to learn all about Live Streaming at bet365!

Q1. Err…What is Live Streaming?

Ok, not everyone is as au-fait with the vagaries of the modern world as others. So maybe you are not up on live streaming and what purpose it serves on sites such as bet365 Sport.

Live Streaming is essentially a broadcast of an event over the Internet. On sports betting sites, these broadcasts are usually of sporting contests (but can also be esports events too).

Essentially, a site owner such as bet365 will receive streams of lots of sporting events that are happening at present. They will then re-route the stream directly onto its website for its customers to tune in to watch.

You can locate bet365’s dedicated Live Streaming service in the In Play betting section on the site. Simply scroll through the list of sports at the top of the page and you will find the Streaming service button.

Just click on this and it will bring up a list of sports events currently being contested of which bet365 has a stream available for your region.

Q2. What do I Need to Watch a Bet365 Sport Live Stream?

For the majority of sports (excluding greyhounds), you need to have the following: –

  • A bet365 Account that you are logged into and either: –
  • Have made a bet in the preceding 24-hour period or
  • A credit balance in your account.

So, once you are logged in to your bet365 account, just ensure you’ve placed a bet in the past 24-hours, or that you have a credit balance in your account, and you can tune in to almost all of the live streams available on site.

  • Change to Horse Racing Streaming

One important thing to note is that for horse racing, customers do not now need to have placed a bet on a race to view the stream. Horse Racing streams are now shown to customers who have placed ANY bet in the previous 24 ours, or who have a credit balance.

This is good news for horse racing punters who previously had to bet on a race (minimum bet of £0.50) to watch the stream of it.

Q3. What do you mean by “Credit Balance”?

This is one of the reasons why bet365’s Live Streaming service is just so good! Some people do not bet every day, so it would seem a bit unfair on those punters if they had limited access to the Live Streaming service.

So bet365 allow customers with ANY credit balance to watch their Live Streams (excluding Greyhounds) without having made any bet, at any time. Simply keep some money in your account and you’ll have access to the live streaming service on the site.

Best of all, there isn’t a lower limit for this service. You can keep just a few pence in your account to keep access to all the live streams! There’s no need to deposit, or add fresh funds, just keep a few pence in that account untouched and you will be able to watch the live streams at any time.

Top Tip – When you make your first deposit, simply add a token amount of extra pence onto the total deposit. For example, instead of making a £10 deposit, make a £10.03p deposit. Then bet with the £10 and keep the £0.03 in your account to access the live streaming service at any time.

Q4. Why can’t I watch a Greyhound Race on Live Streaming at Bet365?

Unlike horse racing, greyhound racing at bet365 is available on a live stream, but only if you have bet on the particular race in question.

To watch any greyhound race in the UK and Ireland, you need to place a bet worth £0.50 or greater in value (£0.50 to win or £0.25 each way minimum) on the race in question.

Then a short time before the race starts, you will be able to access the live stream of the race.

Q5. What Sports does bet365 Offer Live Streaming for?

Remember when we said bet365’s Live Streaming service was as extensive as any other we can find and use online?

Well, here’s a list of just some of the sports (note sports, not competitions, fixtures etc) available through bet365 Live Streaming services.

  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Badminton
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Esports
  • Futsal
  • Greyhounds (only via a qualifying bet on the race)
  • Horse Racing
  • Ice Hockey
  • Table Tennis
  • Volleyball

Q6. So Can I Watch the Premier League on bet365 Sport?

That depends on where you are living when you access the bet365 Sport site. Some countries do not permit live streams available on bet365 to be shown in that particular country.

For example, in the UK, you can’t watch the Premier League matches via Live Stream as a number of broadcasters own the rights to these games. However, in a country where these rights are not owned, then if bet365 is available in that country, the live stream of Premier League games may be available.

So if in your country, the Premier League rights are owned by a broadcaster, then it is unlikely that they will be available on Live Stream. However, in countries where the games are not owned by a broadcaster, then there is a good chance you can tune in via the bet365 Live Stream service.

Q7. What are the Top Sports Tournaments I Can Watch from the UK via Bet365 Live Streaming?

A good question and one easy to answer. There are a huge number of events you can watch in the UK via live streaming. Let’s go through some of the very best sport-by-sport.

  • Soccer – Domestic League action from : Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, China, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, Austria, Romania, Sweden, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium, United States, Brazil, Denmark, Norway and Chile – plus international matches from Asia including World Cup Qualifiers, women’s football, International U21, U20, U19, U18 and Youth games.  This includes action from the top flight divisions in Germany, Spain, Italy and France as well as the MLS in the United States.
  • Tennis – ATP Tour and WTA Tour tournaments
  • Basketball – NBA Basketball, plus coverage of a number of other leagues from around the World. Also includes NCAA College Basketball in the United States.

Q8. Can You Get a Bigger Picture for a Live Stream at Bet365?

You sure can! On some live streams, there is an icon in the bottom right hand corner of the stream of what looks like a box.

Click on this and this will expand the stream to a much larger size (although depending on the quality of the stream and your internet speed, you may suffer from a bit more pixelation of the screen).

To reduce the screen size back down again, click on the icon with the four arrows pointing diagonally inward on the larger screen and it will return to the smaller size.

Q9. Is it easy to bet In Play along with watching a Live Stream?

Yes. If you click on a Live Stream then you will have a list of markets available for you for that fixture listed next to the screen.

Remember though, In Play markets update very quickly and as things happen in the game, the odds on these markets will change rapidly in some cases.

Also, it is good advice to use the stats for the game to help you decide what your next In Play betting move may be. The Stats are listed directly underneath the Live Stream on the right hand side of the page.

Q10. Do I need a Powerful Computer or Phone/Tablet to Live Stream?

No. Live streaming is much smoother now than it was even 5, let alone 10 years ago when these issues were more of a problem.

Given the power that most mobiles, tablets, and computers have nowadays, even older machines should have no issues with the streaming services offered by bet365 Sport.

So, there you go. Bet365 Live Streaming is as comprehensive as you would expect from a company that has been one of the best for live streaming services for many years.
