How To Access Live Streams: A Step-By-Step Guide

With many sports betting apps you can watch live sport as you play. It’s a simple process that is generally consistent across each bookmaker.

In order to watch live streams of sport you’ll often have to place a qualifying bet on the sport’s event in question, usually a minimum of £1.

To access live streams you simply have to follow these steps…

  1. Sign-up or log-in to your bookmaker betting app.
  2. Find the sports event you wish to live stream. Every app will usually have a small icon to indicate you can live stream. This is usually a ‘Play’ icon.
  3. Place a qualifying wager on the event if required (all horse racing generally requires a qualifying wager, while a number of other sports will too).
  4. Once you’ve placed your wager the live stream will unlock.
  5. Press play and watch sport live!
