The Cheltenham Festival is the most prestigious horse racing meeting in the UK, if not the world.
It may not have the glamour of Royal Ascot or the national interest of the Grand National, but for anyone with even a passing interest in National Hunt racing it is the four days of the Cheltenham Festival that really get the juices flowing.
The festival takes place each year in the middle of March, and punters are already drawing up their shortlist of potential winners for the 2019 edition.
If you live in the UK you can watch the action unfold on the ITV network, but if you can’t get to a TV set and need to watch on your mobile phone or tablet – or you don’t live in the UK – there is another way you can watch the races happen.
All you need to do is sign up for an account with either bet365 or William Hill, and then you can take advantage of their Cheltenham live streaming services.
