When it began its operations in the United Kingdom, Unibet was mainly a phone betting business. It expanded to reach users in different parts of the world. It made many acquisitions during that period, including taking over Betchoice, which became Unibet Australia. It also received an Australian domain (.com.au) and the users who had Betchoice accounts were moved to Unibet Australia.

Streaming on Unibet Australia

One of the most asked questions when it comes to Unibet Australia is whether customers are allowed to stream live sports events as they unibet-australia-review2happen. The answer is: yes, people can access Unibet live streams by visiting Unibet TV. In order to do this, users need to log into their Unibet account and click on ‘Streaming’ found in the Sports Betting page.

Watching on Unibet streaming

There is a wide selection of what customers can watch on Unibet TV. Popular games such as NBA, selected football games and also NFL can be streamed, and this is available on mobile. Customers interested in something specific can check out what is coming up by scrolling through the calendar. To be able to access the streaming services, users should have funds in their accounts and must have placed a bet within the last 24 hours.

Interface and web design

Many Unibet Australia reviewers believe that the site could do with some improvement when it comes to how the interface looks and the design of the website. However, it is certainly easy to navigate. Under the sports menu, users will find a shortcut that leads to popular sports. There are also links that show the sports that are about to begin for users to bet on. When users click on any sport, they get the leagues and the sub markets within the league. There is also a search feature for people who are looking for specific sports. The panel that leads to the odds gets some complaints for being too dark. Events with a green icon next to them indicate that the event will be streamed live.

Unibet Australia betting odds

As much as Unibet Australia reviews have some complaining about the commission rates offered on the odds, the prices are competitive. Customers can bet on major soccer leagues and NBA, NHL and NFL at 1.90.
