Having to find a betting shop to watch a horse run is now very much a thing of the past thanks to the advent of live streaming which now works on desktop and mobile.
Various different online betting sites now offer their punters the chance to watch any race they’ve bet on for free with coverage across the UK, Ireland, France, USA and South America.
Below we’ll explain how you can watch any UK or Irish based race by betting just 50p and any race from France, the United States or South America for £1.
UK & Ireland – How To Watch For £1
If you’re a member at Betvictor and you’ve placed a minimum of £1 on any UK or Irish horse race that is shown on At The Races or Racing UK then you’ll be able to stream the race, via your PC or mobile device, for free.

France, USA, South America For £1
Anyone who had an account with Paddy Power will also have access to their live streaming service which includes racing from the UK, Ireland, USA and South America. You will however have to have bet at least £1 on any race to watch live as oppose to 50p.
It’s also important to note that your bet must have been placed after 9.30am on the day of the race… this has caught me out before so make sure you’re aware.
Broadcasts on Paddy Power start 3 seconds before the off. To watch just click the small TV icon on the racecard.
UK and Irish racing is available on PC and on mobile. Racing from France, South America or the USA is only available on PC.
Right now Paddy Power are the only bookie offering live streaming for these three regions so if you want to bet and watch you’ll need an account with them.
