    I want to watch free live streams of horse races from Australia. Particularly from the Sydney and Victorian race meeting. Are there any apps that offer live streams or even live commentary from Australian racetracks.

    UK and Irish bookmakers have been live streaming horse races for a number of years. Now Australian online bookmaker SportsBet have follow their lead by live streaming horse racing from racecourses in Victoria. It's not a bet and watch service where you need to wager on a particular race to active the live stream. Instead SportsBet will be live steaming the races to iPhone, Android and Windows Phone devices free of charge providing you have a funded account. >> Read More


    Does anyone have an update on this? I've been looking for an app myself that would allow me to watch live horse racing from Australia but I haven't been able to find one. Do any of the Australian based online sports book offer "Bet & Watch" deals like their European counterparts? I don't mind having placing a bet on a particular race as long as I'm able to watch a live stream on my phone after. Thanks

    You should be able to watch live racing from a lot of Australian racetracks, including Rosehill, Canterbury & all Melbourne tracks, via the Racing Network live stream here -

    The live racing videos should work on any android phone that supports flash.

    Enjoy :)

    download the BIGPOND APPLICATION

    You can watch the TVN coverage through it although you need to find the "watch races live" which is a bit of a pain to navigate too in a quick fashion

    If you download this FilmOn app from Google Play then you will be able to watch Australian TV Channels on your phone providing you are in Australia or you are using an Australian IP address. The app is free to download and use.

    yes, if you sign-up to be a customer with tab you can watch Sky Racing for free on both iphone and android for two months. full details at Tab.

    unfortunately this offer isn't available in every country so check the fine print.

    Do any of the Australian bookmakers offer live streaming to their iOS or Android apps like the European bookmakers? I'd sign-up if I wan able to watch live horse racing from Victoria and Melbourne for a £1 bet.

    No, even though many of the major Australian online bookmakers like SportingBet and SportsBet have been bought by William Hill and Paddy Power they still do not offer a "Bet and Watch" service via their website or apps. I'm sure they would love to be able to stream live racing because it is a great way to attract new customers but unfortunately Sky Racing own most of the broadcasting rights. Sky want people to subscribe to their racing channel so it's unlikely that they will allow any other company to stream racing from Sydney or Victoria etc.

    I was a SportingBet customer so I was a little apprehensive when I heard that I'd have to switch over to the William Hill app. I needn't have worried, the WH app is probably better for horse racing fanatics like myself. The racing form is great and it's easy to navigate through the various racecards. All it's missing is live streaming.

    Do any Australian bookmakers offer a bet and watch service for UK and Irish horse racing?

    No. Australian bookies only live streaming racing from Australian racecourses. William Hill is the only Aussie bookmaker that live streams from racetracks in both NSW and Victoria.
