Introduction: Betting on TV shows: Bet with your remote
Today, betting on TV shows is just a natural progression from sports betting. From reality TV to current affairs as well as award ceremonies and game shows, the sky is the limit for picking odds and selecting winners. So it’s not surprising to find technology stepping in to make the process of placing bets all the more easier. Today you can pick the odds and place your bets directly via the TV screen, without lifting your lardy fat arse from the comfy sofa. Thanks to new apps, like Bet365, you’re now able to bet on an event, whether a show or sports, as you watch it unfold in front of you.
And the Best Picture Award goes to….
Betting From Your Sofa In Your Underpants
So there you are, in your underpants, sprawling over your sofa, surrounded by old pizza and old beer cans. Can’t make the effort to take the trip down the street to the betting shop (who can blame you!). And it’s probably raining. Well, thanks to some new apps, you don’t have to lift a finger (OK…sorry, but that much you have to do!). Bring up the relevant app, and scroll through the range of odds the bookmaker is offering. Then simply place your bets. You can even control the movement of your funds with your remote control.

Being able to bet directly via the TV integrates both the viewing experience with the excitement of having a flutter. Just like peer to peer betting. Here’s a list of other online sportsbooks in the UK. Now where’s that old piece of pizza? (Clue: You’re probably sitting on it!).
