Live streaming

What is live streaming

Live streaming is one of the latest features top bookmakers in the industry offer. It is specially popular with live betting and comes to forefront when the event is not shown on TV or you don’t have the proper sports channel. But that does not mean you can watch whatever you want, some of the events can only be seen in certain countries. This is usually the case when the broadcasting companies have exclusive on broadcasting rights. For example at bwin, Bundesliga streams are only available for customers with residence outside Germany borders.  Following the sports that are not fully broadcast on TV, is one of the big advantages of live streaming. Tennis is a good example, as not all of the matches are shown and other sports that don’t get full attention from television sports networks.

Requirements for entering a broadcast are usually  small, but you do have to place a minimum bet or make a small deposit to access live stream on relevant event. One of the things that is important here is the quality of the video live stream and you do have to take into the account that the stream is delayed by at least five to ten seconds.
