Watching the Melbourne Cup is an Australian tradition – after all, it isn't called "The Race That Stops A Nation" for nothing!
Today, in 2017, we now have a myriad of wonderful ways to watch video online, but when it comes to the Melbourne Cup 2017, there are two surefire ways to watch the horses bolt for victory.
Of course, there can be only one winner, but those two winning ways to watch the live stream are simple: Twitter and the Channel 7 live stream, be it via the Channel 7 website, or via the Channel 7 app.
You'll find the Channel 7 website here, but unless you're in Australia, or pretending to be in Australia by using a VPN, this streaming option is likely geo-locked to Australia only.
You'll likely find that various betting sites and apps also have a live stream available. If you're one who punts via an app, check it out, otherwise use either option above.
