Cheltenham Festival is one of the biggest events in the horseracing calendar, and a hugely anticipated event for any horseracing enthusiast. The Festival might not be going ahead as usual this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the thrill and excitement from home!


If you're wondering how to watch the 2021 Cheltenham Races from home, read our guide below.


Cheltenham live streaming will be available on the ITV website and Racing TV website. You can live stream the races on your smart TV, laptop, tablet or smartphone if you have an internet connection.

The Cheltenham Festival 2021 will be shown live on ITV Racing and Racing TV.


For the first time, ITV Racing will be broadcasting the first six races of the day. The show begins on ITV from 1pm to 4.30pm. This means the WellChild Gold Cup is now at 3.05pm.


ITV Racing is on Sky Channel 103 and Virgin Media Channel 103. You can see the full racing schedule on the ITV website.


While ITV Racing broadcasts the big races of the day, Racing TV will be showing every race live. If you want to watch the 4.10pm or 5.30pm races, you’ll need to join Racing TV. You can watch on your TV, tablet, or mobile. Racing TV is on Sky Channel 426 and Virgin Media Channel 536.

Hosted by Chris Hughes, The Nightcap is your one stop shop for all things Festival!
