Introduction to Bet365 Streaming Service: Live Streaming and Welcome Offers

Please Note: To use the Live Streaming service you will need to be logged in and have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.

With Bet365 being one of the top bookmakers in the UK and globally, it has to match up to its hype and have some special features that attract more customers to the platform. This has seen Bet365 provide a live streaming feature to the bettors where they can log in to their accounts and watch some of the live sports events. I accessed the feature and here is my review.

Bet365 Streaming Features 

First, I realized that there were system requirements set out to access the feature

For Microsoft users, they had to use Windows XP, Internet Explorer 10 and well-updated browsers such as Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome. Those players who would be using Apple would have to go with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and well-updated browsers such as Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. While on it, the live streaming feature required that users have a broadband speed of 512kbp/s or higher.

The live streaming feature came with both the video and audio support and this would largely depend on the broadband speed. Additionally, the live streaming feature would be accessible through a mobile platform which would include a mobile site and a mobile application and also, I was able to access the feature through my desktop.

Finally, I noted that the feature was tailored depending on the country of residence. Not all countries were allowed to stream and residents of some countries may not be able to the racing events.

Sports Live Streaming Review: Seamless Experience

Live streaming remains one of the most sought after features in many of the online bookmakers and with Bet365 providing the feature, I noted many advantages of it;

  • It brought out a great experience when I got to watch some of the popular games on the platform
  • It helped me out in-play betting & cash-out as I was able to analyze the game dynamics
  • I noted the feature brought a competitive edge over the other bookmakers that had not offered the live streaming feature
  • Bet365 streamed over 140,000 events in a year
  • No charges were attached to the live streaming feature
  • The feature was available on both PC and mobile (site and application)
  • The feature offered high-quality visuals and audio

How to access the live streaming service

As earlier stated, I was able to access the Bet365 live streaming feature in two forms; Through my desktop and a mobile platform.

Bet365 provides free live streaming feature. However, the bookmaker required that for me to enjoy the events, I had to have;

  1. A loaded account
  2. An account that had placed a bet within the last 24 hours

Though there were some exceptions

Here is a guide on I accessed the feature through the mobile platform;

  • I ensured my account was funded or had placed a bet in the last 24 hours
  • I then logged into my account
  • On the live games, I looked on the ones that had a ‘Play’ button
  • I proceeded on to watch the event
  • Alternatively, I would also click on the live streaming option to see the live games and scheduled games that would be watched live and make a selection from there

On the desktop version, the process was almost similar;

  • I logged into my account
  • I looked for the ‘Play’ icon on the live games
  • I picked an event and watched
  • The same would be done from the ‘Live streaming’ option on the top lobby where the streamed live games and scheduled games would be provided for a selection to be made

 

User Interface: High-Quality Graphics and Intuitive Design 

I was impressed with the live streaming feature for its high-quality graphics, video quality, and audio quality. I enjoyed a wonderful experience through my desktop and mobile. No charges were incurred and a dedicated ‘live streaming’ option was offered for ease of access.

Which sports are covered?

I noted that thousands of events were covered in a year on the Bet365 live streaming feature. Of these, many UK and Ireland events were being streamed, as well as US races, South African meetings, and some Australian tracks also offered. Here are the sports offered on the feature;

  • Tennis Soccer
  • Table Tennis Darts
  • Badminton Snooker
  • Beach Volleyball Basketball
  • Horse Racing Ice Hockey
  • Greyhounds Handball
  • US Horse Racing

Unique Bet365 Streaming Features

There are other standout features on the platform that I came across which included;

  • In-play betting – This allowed players to place bets on the live events
  • Cash-out – This allowed the players to withdraw winnings or part of the stake before the live event is finished. There were three types (Full cash-out, Partial cash-out, and auto cash-out)
  • Edit Bet – This allowed bettors to make changes to the bet by adding, swapping, removing a selection, increasing a stake, or changing a bet type
  • Bet Builder – This allowed a player to build a unique bet on different markets and have Bet365 pricing it as a single bet.

My Rating: 4.7/5

In my view, Bet365 offered the best live streaming service as compared to other bookmakers I have come across. Many events were shown live with popular sports also aired. No charges were placed on the feature making it accessible. What’s more, I was able to access the feature through the desktop and a mobile platform which was convenient for me. The only negative majorly is that some countries were restricted to the service while others would not view all the games. 4.7/5
