Australian wagering operator TAB Sportsbet adds live sports video to its online book service


TabSportsbetAustralia wagering operator, TAB Sportsbet, which is the only gambling and betting website approved by the Aussie Government has added live sports video to its online sports book service.

The site which deals in fixed odds betting on racing and sport, has today confirmed a multi-year licensing agreement with Watch&Bet. Their managers just couldn’t wait to tell us that the live streaming service will be powered by digital sports media company Perform.

The deal will strengthen TAB Sportsbet’s sports betting offering and will apparently result in thousands of football, Davis Cup & ATP 1,000 Series tennis and international cricket matches being streamed every year  across the sports betting website in Australia. Sounds pretty good, if you’re 3G isn’t playing up, however.

Using the word “exciting” more than just the once, TAB Sportsbet Managing Director, Craig Nugent, said: “With thousands of live events streamed every year and covering some of the most exciting sports from around the world, Watch&Bet provides an exciting new dimension for punters and yet another reason to choose TAB Sportsbet.”

In a bid to plug his company as well, Managing Director of Watch&Bet, Ross MacEacharn, added: “We’re delighted to announce our first local partner in Australia. Watch&Bet brings an exciting dimension to online in-play betting and we pride ourselves on delivering live and regionally relevant video streams to our partners and their audiences at times that suit them best.”

The addition of TAB Sportsbet to the Watch&Bet service brings the total number of licensees who use the service globally to 32., which isn’t too bad. Not too bad at all. TAB Sportsbet seems to be building up quite a good mobile gambling reputation, as it also launched its smartphone app earlier this year so users can follow up the current bets or events through their iPhones and iPads. Are you an Australian citizen who loves to gamble on the go? If so, what do you think of the TAB Sportsbet service?
