The racing game has changed forever.
The days of only being able to watch the sport of kings from the track, at the pub or occasionally on free-to-air TV is over.
Punters can now follow every single race from the comfort of their homes, or in their cars… or huddled in a corner at party they’d rather not be at.
If you follow our tips, you’ll never miss a race again.

Live streaming every race at BetEasy
In 2017, the bookmaker then known as CrownBet (now BetEasy) announced a ceasefire in its war with Tabcorp over a controversial merger with Tatts.
The benefits to that ceasefire became apparent straight away when CrownBet announced it had secured the rights to stream SKY Racing 1 and SKY Racing 2.
So, if you sign up with BetEasy.com.au, you will soon be able to have unbridled and unprecedented access to racing vision.
Before this announcement, the only way you could legally watch live racing vision was to pay for subscription cable television (Foxtel), sign up at Tabcorp (which this website does not recommend) or pay a fortune for other subscriptions.So how do you watch live racing at BetEasy?
First, you have to sign up at the bookmaker – which costs nothing and takes just one minute.
Then, vision of every thoroughbred, greyhound and harness race is yours, whenever you want, wherever you want.
What is on SKY Racing 1 and SKY Racing 2?
SKY Racing is licensed to provide footage of all racing in Australia.
Every single thoroughbred, greyhound and harness race run and won in Australia is televised by the racing network – which also has a host of analyst shows before and after meetings. The network will also provide live footage of racing from the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, South Africa and the United States (but will not do so for greyhounds or harness).
SKY Racing 1 will host all of the priority viewing – so the most popular meetings and races of the day that have attracted the most money and viewers.
As a general rule SKY Racing 2 will show what is left over from SKY Racing 1. Less popular meetings, races that have been delayed and missed by the main telecast and racing from overseas that gets placed behind on the priority list.
Make no mistake – for a full racing experience, having both channels is necessary for punters who want to watch every race live.
Access to the footage is a big boost to BetEasy and its members.
