Want to see the Melbourne Cup but don’t have a TV in your workplace? Here’s how you can watch the race that stops a nation from the relative comfort of your browser.
As in previous years, the race — which commences at 3PM AEDT — will be broadcast on Channel 7 and you can live stream it on the network’s website. The site may not work outside Australia if you don’t have a suitable VPN set up — you could also try Hola for an easy fix. (Although this comes with its own risks.)
