If you can’t get near to a TV screen for the 2012 Grand National but do have internet access, you can watch the big Aintree race for free at 4.15pm on Saturday via a live stream on bet365
Many online bookmakers know customers like to watch a horse race after placing a bet, with online streaming now available once you have placed a small bet on a particular race.
Bookmakers such as bet365
have brokered a deal with TV channels AtTheRaces and Racing UK which means that if a customer places a bet on any race from a UK or Irish meeting, they can then click on ‘Watch Now’ and view the action from start to finish.
The picture quality is excellent and the live streaming is supported by most PC browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.
You don’t need to pay to watch the live horse racing streaming at bet365, although you must place a bet of at least £0.50 win or £0.25 each-way on the day of the race to access the quality live pictures from the racecourse.
Live horse racing is available wherever you are in the world, with bet365 only restricting access for customers in France, the USA, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
The broadcast of a race begins a few seconds before the actual ‘off’ with the entire race being shown before the broadcast ends, although there is also the chance to watch free replays of that particular race should you want to.
To watch and bet on the 2012 Grand National live, simply do the following:
- Go to bet365 and either log in or register a new account
- Click on Live Streaming and then Horse Racing
- Select the Grand National (4.15 Aintree) from the list and enjoy the race
