Most online bookmakers will offer live sports streaming to some degree, but some are definitely better than others. Some events are streamed far more often, with Horse Racing being the most popular, and the likes of the English Premier League being streamed the least frequently. It's important to know which of the best streaming online bookmakers show the most sports so we've listed six bookmakers who offer this service and what they specialise in.
Bet365 offer an incredible amount of sports betting to stream and seem to be the best when it comes to the variety of sports you can watch on the go, all you need to watch most sports is to have funds in your account. They currently offer a plethora of events such as Soccer, Ice Hockey, Horse Racing, Tennis, Basketball, Snooker, Darts, Cricket betting and Squash, and really there is very few events you actually can't watch with them.
In 2020 Bet365 exclusively obtained the rights for the English FA Cup, this meant that certain matches were only available to watch on their website, which was completely unprecedented as it was the first time an online betting site had exclusive rights to a major sporting event in the UK
Betsafe are another superb streaming site that offers a lot of live events to watch and bet on. They offer international soccer, some soccer leagues in England, as well as the top soccer leagues in Holland, Portugal, Denmark, Australia, Japan, Argentina and Mexico.
If you prefer other sports, they also have you covered as they have plenty of tennis, showing the ATP, WTA, Davis Cup, Grand Slams: Australian Open and Wimbledon.. Other sports they stream include Ice Hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball and snooker.
888Sport is another bookmaker who predominantly focus on horse racing and greyhound racing, but in 2020 they also made the move to stream every German Bundesliga match which offered a unique offering to bettors.
888Sport stream the action from every racecourse and greyhound track in Britain and Ireland, including the likes of Royal Ascot, the Cheltenham Festival and Glorious Goodwood. US, Canadian, French and Australian racing is also available to stream.
Royal Panda offer sports streaming also and they are definitely worth checking out if you want to bet on and watch live sports.
As well as loads of general sporting events, Royal Panda have an impressive amount of esports they stream, as well as other unique events such as chess and snooker. They show live matches of Dota 2, CS:GO, League of Legends and all the top eSports you could ever want to watch and bet on.
Streaming sport is becoming a must-have for online punters as the ability to watch and bet on the go is becoming more and more important. Some bookmakers offer just horse racing to stream, while others offer literally thousands of events to watch each and every week. If you want to stream a plethora of events, knowing what events bookmakers offer in advance is extremely important.
There are plenty of other bookmakers who offer live streaming to varying degrees and you can find these on the below table.

The vast majority of the top in-play sports betting sites offer live streaming services, but as already stated not all do, so be sure to confirm the service is offered before signing up. Once you follow the below steps you should have no difficulty in streaming live sports.
With online bookmakers live sport streaming, customers can now expect to watch any sport, happening at anytime, across the world.
You can catch many of the major betting events on television, but there are literally thousands of events that don’t get the same level of attention. Some events are almost exclusively shown on bookmaker websites and we'll explain more on each sport below.
With the vast majority of online bookmakers out there offering live streaming, you could really start applying some serious betting strategy. For example, you could sign up for multiple accounts to take full advantage of all the various odds and prices offered by each sportsbook.
It may be a good idea to open a few online betting accounts to really increase your opportunities to rake in the potential winnings. You don’t necessarily have to bet through a bookie to get access to the live streaming betting site to watch the sport you’re looking for.
So, you could possibly use just one account to watch the event and open accounts with other bookmakers that are offering the better odds, prices and special offerings. For example, some bookmakers have a cash out feature, which is a great option to use while live-streaming and placing bets.
We have previously put together an In-Play betting strategy article which can aid your decision making when betting on live streamed events.
Live streaming brings sporting events right to your device. This means that whether you are at home or on the go, customers are able to access the vast majority of sporting events through their device. Other benefits of streaming include the ability to watch a higher number of events than you even could on TV and the ability to track and potentially cash out bets in-play.
With most bookmakers you will need a flash or HTML5 based system to be able to actually watch the events as this generally is the service these websites use to stream their events. Sometimes you may also need to have a flash plugin installed in your browser.
This can depend on numerous factors such as your internet speed, the actual provider of the stream and whether your device has the right software to comfortably stream a live event. If these are all ok, then you should be able to watch any sporting event in a relatively high quality.
Yes as long as these devices have the correct software, which the majority of modern day technology do, then you should have very little issues in streaming live sports across any android, iOS, Windows device.
Yes and no. The physical streaming of events will not cost any money per se, but you will generally have to have funds in your account to watch a live event. Horse Racing can differ from this and apart from Paddy Power, who allow you to stream horse racing events as long as you have a funded account, you will have to stake a minimum bet to watch a race.
Yes, Canadian licensed online bookmakers buy the rights to stream live sporting events so this is completely legal.
Naturally for streaming to work for you efficiently you will need to ensure that your broadband, 4g or 3g is readily available. To combat this some operators do offer low resolution streams that can run as low as 128kb/s, but this is obviously not as satisfactory as watching the events in a higher quality.
