What do you need for live streaming Betfred?

The answer is very little. All you need for the opportunity to watch live football is a decent internet connection, whether that is through your WiFi or your 4g data.

Bear in mind that visual and audio streaming does use a significant amount of data, so check that your mobile phone plan allows for this. It is available on both Android and iOS operating systems. Simply download the app or log into the website, and you are ready to get in on the action.

The great thing about being able to watch Betfred live on your device is that you can stream it in the background while doing something else. You also need to make sure that you have an account with Betfred with credit – unfortunately, this does need to be ‘real money.’ Free bets and bonus funds do not count in this offer.

How do you access Betfred live streams?

First of all, you need to go to to take advantage of the live stream. It is important to note that this offer is only available to those living in the United Kingdom or The Republic of Ireland. You then need to log into your Betfred account – if you do not already have one, it is really simple to sign up. Remember, you do need to have a credit in your account to be able to watch live football.

Once you are logged in, click on to the ‘watch live’ tab. This tab is displayed at the top of the screen, just under the Betfred logo. You can also go to the match or event that you want to bet on. If there is a ‘watch live’ symbol next to it, this means that the live stream is available. Click on that symbol to be taken to the live stream.

As long as you have qualified to watch the event – although football and most sports are free to stream, you need to place a bet to access the horse racing, and greyhound meets – you can sit back and enjoy the game!

What do you do if you can’t see the live stream?

The first thing to do is to check that your connection to the internet is working. The minimum requirement to watch live streams with Betfred is a 512kbps broadband connection. Anything lower than this will mean that the quality will not be as high as you would probably like.


Anything higher and the buffering time of your live stream will be kept to a minimum, and the quality of the resolution will be much higher, making for a much clearer picture. You also need to remember that there is a delay of around thirty seconds, so if it is lagging more than that, refresh the page and try again.

If this still does not resolve the problem, and you are sure that your Betfred account has enough funds in, close down the application or the website and restart it. Occasionally, the stream is interrupted because of technical issues at the other end, in which case the only thing you can do is be patient!

What other sports can you watch live on Betfred?

The online bookmaker shows plenty of other sports live on their website, including basketball, tennis, volleyball, cricket, darts, and many others.

How do you plan your live stream schedule on Betfred?

As we know, the weekend is packed with sporting action, and to make sure you catch the games and matches that you want, you need to plan well in advance.

Betfred has a superb calendar that shows all of the upcoming live streams. It is easy to navigate and allows you to create your own streaming schedule up to seven days in advance so that you never miss anything.

What makes Betfred live streams different from others?

The live stream screen on Betfred opens in a completely different window to the main platform.

The advantage that this gives you is that you can have a streaming window open while you continue to browse around the bookmaker website, rather than choose between the sportsbook or have it open in another tab on your browser, which we all know is not particularly convenient at times!
