We are all used to watching some racing on the TV. Sitting in our armchair at home, a can of beer in our hand, and plenty of food available to snack on in the kitchen. As with all things, they change over time. It was only a couple of decades ago that the only live horse racing we could watch was in the bookmakers, with the occasional meeting on terrestrial TV. Then came along the racing channels, with the first one appearing in the late nineties. There was a monthly charge for this though, and so it did not really go mainstream. In the early part of this century, we ended up with two racing channels, one was subscription, while the other was free to watch.
The problem with these two channels though, is that you need to be subscribed to either Virgin Media, or Sky in the first place, so even the free racing channel is not actually free. This leaves a lot of people without the means to watch most of the live racing that is available each day. Well, that may have been the case a few years ago, but these days, with internet speeds improving, and the popularity of tablet and smartphones, it is now easy to watch horse racing via live streaming. Sites such as Races-Live.co.uk offer such a service. If you are not sure what live streaming is, then check out this FAQ Page for more details.
One thing is certain, and that is that watching live horse racing can now be done anywhere. Even if you are at work, if you enjoy a bet, then you can sneak away and watch the race on your smartphone. No longer do racing enthusiasts have to put a bet on and wait to find out the result, they can watch it live anywhere they like.
