How to Use Ladbrokes Live Streaming Feature
Live Streaming in the modern-day sports betting industry is a competition all of its own – the standards and quantity of live streamed events has improved 10 times over from when it was first introduced a number of years ago. Ladbrokes live streaming covers a lot of sports, events and betting markets. Check out this article to learn more.
Live Streaming, in brief, is the live video coverage of a sporting event provided to you from 3rd parties through a bookmaker on their website or application. It allows you, the customer, to watch events you have bet on, want to bet on or quite simply, an event you want to watch. Ladbrokes introduced their live streaming service also known as TV Live, in 2000 and adapted and improved the service leaps and bounds to go alongside the other technological developments in the industry.
Ladbrokes offer live streaming across a variation of sports and competitions that take place all over the world giving customers chances to watch events in the UK no matter what the time is.
Ladbrokes live streaming is advertised amongst the “In-Play” section and headers on the Ladrokes site in an effort to put the 2 related aspects right together for customer attention. Once you enter the In-Play sports list you can choose between what sport you want to display the list for specifically or view all sports, and at the very top right of the sports list, you can choose to view only “Stream” events.
Stream events are those which are live, or due to start shortly, where live streaming is or will be available – this type of filter is great for customers who don’t mind betting on any live event that’s going on, but do still want to have some sort of visibility on the event which live streaming provides to them.
You can check In-Play streams that are available as well as any Upcoming events due to streaming in the Ladbrokes schedule.
Viewing live streamed events
When an event is live in-play and live streaming is available, the process to viewing the event is simple enough.
- Click on the event’s participant names or the small streaming icon to the right of the names to “enter” the live event
- The live stream will load to the right-hand side of the dynamic, interactive scoreboard for the game
- The stream will auto-play if the account is eligible to view the content
It’s important to note that live streams are anything from 3-12 seconds behind the actual gameplay time due to transmission delays and the sources that the stream is provided from; so don’t be surprised if the scoreboard or betting markets change, suspend or update quicker than the stream allows, although it is usually the lower end of the “delay” (3 seconds or similar) that the stream is behind by which isn’t a great difference.
Live Streamed Sports
As we mentioned, Ladbrokes Live Streams a number of different sports for the pleasure of its customers, as well as numerous competitions and events within all of these different sports, such as;
- Club & International Football
- Rugby League & Rugby Union
- Horse Racing & Greyhound Racing
Of course, some individual events from different sports may be offered but with availability and demand being for these sports, you’ll find that the majority of live streamed events are from the bigger sports in the world.
Live Streaming Countries
Depending where you are in the world, some events may be available to you but not to others, and some events may not be available to you but available elsewhere – this is all due to licensing and legality of streaming live events from certain competitions to certain regions.
A prime example of this is English club football which is regularly available to be streamed outside of the UK but not so much within the UK due to the television rights and ownership by both Sky Sports and BT Sport.
Even with these elements, there are some countries around the world where live streaming is, unfortunately, not available at all due to regulatory decisions, laws, and allowances set out by governing bodies and gambling regulators, some countries include;
As with any additional function, process or facility that a bookmaker may offer, there is always some small term or condition that customers must meet in order to take advantage of, or in this case – to watch live streamed content.
The conditions a customer account must meet start by the elementary region and availability factors, the stream will not be available if;
- Ladbrokes Live Streaming is not supported in your country or region
- The event stream is not accessible due to broadcasting rights to your country
If you pass these 2 criteria, then you get to the more “industry-standard” requirements for viewing live streamed events like football and tennis, which are:
- Have an account balance
- Have bet within the last 24 hours on any sports event
The tech stuff
Not the most fun part of any service, but it’s also worth knowing the technical things to see whether you can not only utilise the service (supported devices, device capabilities and more) but also that you can utilise it to its full potential and what, if anything, you need to do to your phone or computer to get it working better.
We won’t go into too much detail, but the key requirements are a stable and working internet connection, wifi or mobile, to be able to stream the content.
The streaming itself is secure with its connection so when you open a stream, your data is still protected the same as when you log in and use the website in general.
To sum up, using Ladbrokes Streaming, or Ladbrokes TV Live Streaming if you will, is a simple process with the filtering and access options.
Any Ladbrokes user can easily navigate to the In-Play section, filter to Stream only events and just open the game up and place bet to activate the stream, if they have no balance / haven’t bet in 24 hours, or just open the game up and enjoy the action!
