Nice to see the FPO change:

"Rather than feature morning FPO rounds and afternoon MPO ones, as is typical at tournaments, FPO will tee off soon after the MPO lead card."

- will not only get more eyeballs on FPO but will stop forcing them to play in sometimes vastly different conditions than MPO

Jamie Thomas on play by play with Nate and Val doing color commentary. FPO lead will be playing concurrent with MPO instead of morning/afternoon. They will tee off after MPO with a bit of a break in between.

You're asking the wrong person, for I likely wont be.

But they aren't paying for just the early live rounds, it also sounds like the early Post pro rounds and other "exclusive content" whatever that means

So this means the lead card for FPO will not be competing under the same conditions as the rest of their field?

That does not sound fair to me.

The entire field goes after MPO. We just focus on covering the lead.

I don't think $4.49/mo is enough money to be complaining about. Don't like the live coverage? Don't watch it. If you do, this is a small price to pay. I really really hate how so many people expect things to be free in disc golf, but then complain if their free things are lacking any quality.

Cost to watch DGPT events live for 2020:
Feb 21-24 - $4.49 per event
Mar 14-16 - $4.49 per event
Apr 12-14 - $4.49 per event
May 10-12, May 25-27 - $2.25 per event
Jun 21-23 - $4.49 per event
Jul 5-7, Jul 26-28 - $2.25 per event
Aug 29-Sep 1 - $4.49 per event
Sep 12-15 - $4.49 per event
Oct 17-20 - $4.49 per event

The live coverage for the entire disc golf season ends up costing you, if you choose, about $40. This is not much considering all the dedication, time and work from so many people that it takes to deliver live coverage.

$8.99 a month, or $64.99 a year. They're offering 50% off to PDGA members for the monthly subscription, which puts it at $4.49 a month.

So if you are not using Vimeo as a platform on your "smart TV" or I-Pad, does one also have to pay for a Vimeo subscription in addition to the $8.99 for DGPT content?

There is no subscription cost to Vimeo.
