Live Greyhound Racing is no longer limited to small screens in betting shops, and punters now have a wonderful amount of choice when it comes to watching live dog racing. When having a bet on the dogs, it’s obviously a lot more enjoyable if you can see your greyhound run live and with various TV and online coverage now readily available, this is a fantastic time to get involved in the sport of greyhound racing.
Sky Channel 212 or Freesat Channel 401
Racing Post Greyhound TV has proved to be a huge success and continues to grow in popularity. Viewers can tune in to either Sky Channel 212, or alternatively Freesat Channel 401 to see live greyhound racing five nights a week. The tracks covered by the RPGTV cameras are Hove, Monmore Green, Romford, Sunderland, Crayford, Henlow, Peterborough and Newcastle. Two meetings are shown each evening, but Sunday night’s program is slightly shorter than the rest of the week, starting at 6:15pm and finishing at 9:30pm. From Wednesday to Saturday, the live dog racing gets under way at 7:15pm and concludes at 10:45pm. Presenters on the channel include Julie Collier and Darrell Williams, and the coverage is truly excellent, with knowledgeable guests on the RPGTV sofa on a regular basis.
Bet365 Live Streaming
Over at bet365.com, all the races shown on Racing Post Greyhound TV are streamed are streamed live on the website. This is a completely free service for all bet365 customers and is a good reason for dog racing fans to have access to a bet365 account. To watch any of the RPGTV races, simply visit bet365.com and click the live streaming link at the top of the race card where you should also see the RPGTV logo. The bet365 live streaming player will then launch and from there, you can select which race you’d like to watch. In addition to these free RPGTV races, bet365 also show live greyhound racing from other UK tracks including Wimbledon, Belle Vue, Hall Green and Perry Barr. To view these races, customers need to place a qualifying bet of at least £1. However, this will then open the live streaming service for the remainder of the evening, and not only for the race on which the bet was placed. A whole night of greyhound racing for just £1 sounds good to me!
