Cheapest Option is $20, yikes. Ill just wait for next day coverage and watch uDisc. IMO $20 is way too much. $5 is the most I would consider

Next day coverage is behind the paywall for 14 days. So uDisc will be your only option for a while if you decide not to pay.

Damn, even with that info $20 still isnt worth it to me. Probably still a smart move for them financially but sucks for us.

I've subscribed to DGPT and have been satisfied with my investment. $20 for one event is pretty steep, though, in my opinion. I doubt that I pay for the coverage. I won't like waiting two weeks, but I think I'll be able to deal with it just fine.

Just saw that for $40 you get the live and edited coverage, along with a USDGC disc and $5 credit for some merch. Still probably not buying. Maybe if the basic level was $5-10 and this upgraded package was $20-$25.

I'll wait two weeks. I apparently don't care that much. Yeesh.

I'll pay for it, not like $40 is a lot of money.

Do you guys need a care package with some ramen?

I bought the gold package and will sell the disc on Ebay. Our entertainment spending is down about 98% this year, so $40 for this is barely a thought.

I guess this is an example of what you're going to see in the future as we "grow the sport". I agree with Jimb, $20-$25 for the premium pkg is reasonable I suppose, but personally I don't care enough about live coverage to buy it even at that price.
