A number of the UK’s most trusted bookmakers offer free live streaming of the Cheltenham Festival, as well as dozens of other major meetings, to registered account holders. While many bookmakers require punters to place a small qualifying bet before accessing their racing streams, some simply require users to register an account before they’re free to enjoy live Cheltenham racing on their PC.
Paddy Power allows you to watch the Cheltenham Festival for free online. Well, almost free, as you do need to place a £5 bet on the race you wish to see. This is convenient if you are pretending to work, or otherwise do not have access to a TV.
The service is of a high quality and is provided in conjunction with the horse race channels “Racing UK” and “At the Races”. Each broadcast lasts about 8 to 10 minutes.
Your PC needs to have Internet Explorer version 6 or above, and Windows Media Player 9 or above and you must be a resident of the UK or Ireland.
William Hill allows you to watch Cheltenham live… as long as you place a bet of £5 or more. As you will probably be betting on the event this shouldn’t be a problem, especially as William Hill guarantee the best odds on UK horse races.
All you need to do is open an account and stake £5 or more on the race to watch it online. When your bet is placed, the race link will be available on your My Media page which can be found in your My Account menu options. Simply click on the Watch Race link and the RacingTV screen should load up in a new window on your screen.
Race viewing is currently available to UK and Ireland residents only but should become available to other countries soon.
Ladbrokes TV allows you to watch the Cheltenhan Festival live online when you place a bet of £1 or more on the race you wish to see. This is a lot less than the £5 or more that other bookmakers require, so is a good option for those looking to save all their money for betting on the Cheltenham Festival.
Stan James allows you to watch Cheltenham Festival TV online. In fact any horse race which is being broadcast on the TV Channel “At the Races” can be viewed on your PC.
To view a race you must be logged in with your Stan James account and, as per the other UK bookmakers which offer a similar service, you need to place a bet of at least £5 on each race that you want to see.
