Yes Mate

Betfair cut the 3rd party supplier contract for Live Video to the bone so people go elsewhere these days to both watch live sport and bet.

This must be one of the worst decisions made by Betfair if you ignore the Premium Charges and the launch of the Sportsbook.

Those who watch sport on Bet365 will bet there and have no interest in the very poor value prices on the Betfair Sportsbook.

Driving people elsewhere is corporate madness DWD.

Check out the schedule of LIVE Football on Bet365 compared to the very short list of gash football on Betfair Live Video.

If Betfair want to compete with Bet365 etc as an Exchange or Sportsbook, it will need to fork out for more live football.

Nobody would have believed the demise of Betfair from 2008 to 2015.

Agreed Westender but the trouble is that no-one with a brain can get a bet on with the rancid mob from Poke-On-Trent..

So the live football that can be accessed via nobet£3.65 is a fairytale..

It is even worse for the Betfair Sportsbook - I was limited to £8 on a 1/4 shot FFS even though it was the first time I attempted to place a bet.

Never been back to the Betfair Sportsbook since and never will.

The prices are the Bet365 prices minus 1 tick for favourites and the margins are appalling.

Assuming that the Exchange did not exist, how on earth can the Betfair Sportsbook even compete with bet365 etc?

It offers the worst value prices ever seen and there is very little live sport to attract customers to the website.

I bet more or less exclusively on b365.... the live video is a dealmaker for me, and the cash out.. however their delays when you want to cash out, suspiciously do not appear to be random ie when you have a fat profit it will not let you cash out until a big chunk goes through the lack of remaining time. Otherwise its generally a positive experience.

BARNEY you are not a winner..

Why bet with that rancid mob if you will be restricted to "winning" £25 when you show a profit.

I was the first person to be banned by that firm back in the day (YAWN)..

Had more accounts than Barclays Bank all with different IPs and different computers..

THAT FIRM SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BET IN THE UK..

You are giving them money....

Are you informing us that the Betfair Sportsbook take bets from winning customers?

Betfair "Sportsbook" are an absolute joke and I got banned despite losing 3k in the first week...

The trouble is with gambling in the UK is that you have your details passed on firm to firm...

Strictly illegal I know but even a loser gets banned for backing horses that shorten....

£3.65 are toss, the cash outs are laughable, and disappear when it suits and then appear magically when It doesn't. Much better using BF and laying off. One thing I do like is the number of NFL markets, especially player props, which I take advantage of.

Totally agree. And Betfair are so slipshod with their LV product. They consistently forget to put up videos for stuff they have permission for. Bet365 have much more coverage on a range of other sports, particularly basketball and tennis but several other sports.
