Welcome to the world of Live Cricket!
Many Bookmakers offer free live streaming (of all sports, not just cricket) to their customers, as long as you hold an active account with them. The definition of “active account” varies from one bookie to the next, but as a general rule of thumb, you should place at least one bet in the 24 hours prior to the game you’re watching – Play it fair with the bookies, who are paying for the rights to these matches.. if you don’t abuse the system, they’ll keep providing it – As you’re watching the game for free, why not bet in play too?
As far as I know the following bookies offer some form of live streaming:
Bet365 – Selected matches. See site for full schedule.
Betfair – The guys at Betfair have possibly the most extensive collection of live streaming, from football and cricket to horse racing, snooker and basketball. You must place a minimum £2 bet to watch the stream.
Blue Square – I’m not aware of Blue Square streaming any cricket matches, but they do have a dedicated horse racing streaming service for their customers.
Sky Bet – Sky Bet have a “bet and watch” policy on selected markets – Place a bet of at least £1 on that market, and you’ll get access to the stream.
Ladbrokes – Many thanks to a Live Football member, who told us that “Ladbrokes live stream many sporting events. One merely has to have a Ladbrokes account and log in to it.”
If you know of any more bookies that offer free live streaming to their customers, please let me know, and I will add them to this area.
