William Hill bet-to-view no available through racing UK iPhone app

Racing UK and William Hill have teamed up to offer live horseracing via a new bet-to-view service on the Racing UK App.

That means anyone who places a minimum £2 bet with William Hill - via the Racing UK App - can watch live racing from the broadcaster’s 30 tracks, which include Cheltenham, Aintree, Newbury, Kempton, Goodwood, Newmarket, Epsom, Sandown and York.

Racing UK’s App is free and has been downloaded more than 100,000 times and now serves over seven million page impressions per month.

It features fast-loading racecards and results for all British and Irish tracks, comprehensive racecourse information, statistics, blogs, the latest news, Racing UK’s big-race video archive and the unique Predictor tool for unearthing winners.

In addition, users can upgrade easily in order to watch live Racing UK streaming on both 3G and wireless networks.

Fiona Stevenson, Head of Mobile Marketing, William Hill, added: ''Our latest mobile partnership with Racing UK shows our confidence in the mobile market. Racing fans can now watch races from the UK's best racecourses whilst betting directly with the UK's best bookmaker, with the benefit of form and data, and all while on the move.''

Racing UK’s Director of Business Development Simon Brydon said: “The Racing UK App is fast becoming the one-stop shop for any racing fan, and the latest version is testament to that. Users can now browse racecards, study form and statistics, activate the Predictor, place a bet through our partner William Hill and then watch the race unfold - all through the Racing UK App. There is now no excuse to miss the live racing, as aside from bet-to-view, you can upgrade to a subscription to watch high quality video on wireless or 3G networks for every Racing UK meeting.”
