King George Weekend Ascot Live Stream

Okay – you now know the exact King George Weekend TV schedule, but where do you watch the events? For those of you with direct TV, you’ll be pleased to know that you can watch the races for free on either ITV or ITV4. The King George Weekend in its entirety is covered between these two channels, and as a reminder, coverage starts at 13:30 each day. However, if you are interested in a paid option that comes with more extensive coverage, you can always watch on Sky Racing. But as mentioned, you must pay for a Sky Racing package if you wish to watch through this route. 

Finally, you’ve always got the option of watching the races through your online betting account. Most mainstream bookmakers like Ladbrokes, Unibet, Paddy Power, and others support streaming for horse racing. However, you must have a funded account to use this feature in most cases.
