    Live streaming seems to be the main battleground for online sportsbooks as they try to entice new users to their websites and apps. Bet365, Ladbrokes, Coral and Sky Bet all now broadcast hundreds of live sporting events every week to users of their iOS, Windows Phone and Android apps. Despite this, until now Australian internet bookmaker's have been slow to roll out live sports and horse race streaming to their customers. Here's what we know about SportsBet's new live steaming service...


    Watch live horse racing from Victoria on your phone or tablet for free. Watch live racing from Victorian racetracks like Flemington (Melbourne Cup), Caulfield, Sandown, Geelong, Ballarat, Cranbourne, Cox Plate, Mornington, Bendigo, Mildura, Warrnambool, Stony Creek, Wangaratta, and Moe.
    • Live streams of dozens of different Australian and global sports broadcast daily via the SportsBet website and mobile apps. Watch rugby league, soccer, NBA basketball, major golf tournaments, tennis championships and more for free.
    • SportsBet Mobile is compatible with any iPhone, Android, iPad or Windows Phone device.
    • To watch any of the featured sports or horse races, all you need is a funded account. There is no betting requirement.
    • The SportsBet iOS app has integrated Apple TouchID fingerprint authentication for logins and mobile betting.

    So how much do I have to bet on a race to watch it live? With Paddy Power I just need to have wagered a £1 on a race. Can I watch these races in London or do you need to be living in Australia?

    SportsBet streams all live racing from Victoria for free providing you have a funded account with the bookie. You don't need to have a stake on an individual race to watch it. Live streams are available in most countries although you should check with their customer support to see if England is part of the list.

    Yes. You can also watch every football, tennis, rugby or basketball match from your Mac or PC also.

    Fans of the Australian Football League may be interested to here that you can watch a live stream of every AFL game on any iOS or Android device for free via CrownBet. You'll find full details of the AFL streaming service in this thread

    Yes, the SportsBet native app is only available in the Australian Apple App Store but you can still install the web app that is virtually identical in every way and is available worldwide.

    SportsBet Australia have recently upgraded their mobile software to allow live betting during thoroughbred, Asian and harness horse racing. You can trigger the live in-play betting market from the racecard on your phone or tablet.

    are they running any betting promotions to mark the beginning of the 2016 AFL season? will they be live streaming australian rules games from their iphone app?

    I'm sure many Australian sportsbooks will be revealing enhanced free bets offers and promotions in the coming weeks on the run up to the start of the Australian Rules 2016/2017 season. We'll be keeping a close eye and will publish them here.

    If you are hoping to watch AFL games on your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy then you should download the CrownBet app. Anyone with an active account can watch very games live and for free. Full details here

    the crownbet app sucks. why don't sportsbet or william hill live stream afl fixtures to their apps?

    Unfortunately, CrownBet acquired the mobile live streaming rights for Australian Rules so they have exclusive coverage. Once their broadcasting rights expire, maybe SportsBet, Ladbrokes or William Hill will buy the rights to live stream from the AFL.

    do sportsbet offer in-play betting on iphone or android devices?
  15. Sebastian

    Sebastian Administrator Staff Member

    In-play betting can now only be offered by phone due to changes in Australian gambling regulations.
