What is Betfair Live Video? Betfair Live Video is an online video service, offering live streaming sports events to Betfair customers. Currently the sports we offer are Horseracing, Soccer, Tennis, Snooker, Volleyball, Basketball, Darts.
Do I need to pay?1.3 A minimum matched bet of GBP2 must be placed on the relevant ‘day of the race market’, and placed via the exchange, in order to watch a particular horse race. Tote bets do not qualify for this service. Customers should be aware that SP bets 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. Betfair reserve the right to introduce other fees, subscriptions or charges or conditions for access to Betfair Live Video in the future. You will be made aware of the introduction of any charge or condition before it is introduced.
