How much do I need to bet to watch Live Video?

To watch our Live Video service you might need to place a bet before being able to access the stream. Betfair Live Video is currently free of charge for all content, with the exception of UK, IRE & UAE horseracing.

To access to Betfair Live Video

  • Customers who have placed a bet on an event and then have a zero account balance can now watch sports streams from Perform.
  • The territories to which we are able to stream events vary from sport to sport. The list of scheduled matches will reflect which events you can view from within your particular locale.
  • To watch US and RSA racing requires a funded account with a balance of at least GBP2 (or currency equivalent).

Depending on what product you've used to place your bet, there is a minimum stake required. Take a look below:

For bets placed on the Exchange:
GB, Ireland, UAE, Latin America, Australia and Singapore (Horse Racing) and BAGS and RPGTV meetings (Greyhounds)

  • A minimum matched bet of GBP5 (or currency equivalent) must be placed on the relevant ‘day of the race’ market to qualify to watch that particular race.
  • Customers should be aware that SP bets with an odds limit set do not qualify as matched bets until the very start of race and they will therefore be unable to access the race stream until this time.
  • Antepost and Special bets do not qualify.

  • A minimum bet of GBP5 (or currency equivalent) must be placed on single leg pool bets (win/place, exacta, swinger, trifecta) in order to qualify to watch that particular race.
