4Racing.tv utilizes a special streaming technology known as Adaptive Bit Rate technology that automatically adapts to your Internet connection speed and your device. The higher your Internet connection speed, the better the video quality will be. If you have a high-speed Internet connection (4Mbps and higher), you will get the best video quality. If you have a low-speed Internet connection speed (1 to 2Mbps and lower), you will still be able to watch video content, but not at the best quality we provide.
Yes. Streaming uses data. See point 5.5 below. You will pay your Internet Service Provider for data use.
You will require a minimum speed of 2Mbps but we recommend a 4Mbps (or faster) line to ensure a consistent stream and a great viewing experience, especially if you have more than one user on the line or multiple devices streaming at the same time.
4RACING’ s Adaptive Bit Rate technology automatically adapts to your Internet connection speeds and your device. Thanks to this technology, you will be able to use 4RACING at broadband speeds as low as 512kbps. Of course, the higher your Internet connection speed, the better the video quality will be.
Of course, the higher your Internet connection speed, the better the video quality will be. In terms of managing your data spend, this is an average guide to assist you:
You can use the 4Racing.tv application on multiple devices and you can link up to five different devices to a single account with two concurrent streams.
Customers have full control of their 4Racing.tv account (profile) via "My Account".
During the sign-up process, you will create both your username and password. You will use these to log into 4Racing.tv
Click on "forgot your password" on the login screen. Follow the instructions on-screen, and your username and password will be sent to you.

Ensure you have completed the payment process and payment was successful. The WATCH button will automatically appear on the title you choose to watch after you have successfully completed the subscription payment.
Please check your Internet connection. If you do not have any Internet connection, you will see a message notifying you that you are not currently connected.
If you have an Internet connection but you still cannot watch the video (you either have a blank screen or a loading indicator), this means that your Internet connection is too slow or poor to watch a video. Please use an Internet connection with at least a 512Mbps speed. For best results, a connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps should be used.
This happens when you have a slow Internet connection of 512Mbps or lower. If you are using a small screen, lower quality video is sometimes tolerable. If you are using a big screen like laptop or Smart TV with a slow Internet connection, video quality may be poor, with lots of pixilation. The higher your Internet connection speed, the better the video quality will be.
As a 4Racing.tv customer, you will have various convenient ways to pay, including PayPal as well as voucher payments. You can also look forward to future mobile money and charge to bill options in partnerships with telcos and mobile wallet operators, with more payment options being added all the time.
