I'll be curious what they do for Ledgestone. In it's current set up, I will have to decide whether I watch FPO lead card or MPO lead card.

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.
I dont begrudge them for trying, I just think its still too soon and stated why I won't be subbing... at least not unless I can get a new comp and/or better net at some point. Also, I think its a very good idea to keep the final round free for now. I don't think moving from YouTube is a good idea. Its going to be harder to keep growing the audience without all those potential eyeballs...

Couple things...
The plan is for free live final round all year.
There are a few events where the MPO - FPO Plan will have to be adjusted.
I done begrudge anyone that doesn’t sign up for any reason. But every year people say, “They should just wait one more year...” we have to take that leap sometime.
There should be apps for all major platforms to watch on. AppleTV. IOS, Android.

Will there be ads?

How much of the post produced coverage will be exclusive to the DGN?

Can we shut all the commentary off except for Terry?

And it sounds like the DGPT is trying to monopolize the disc golf video media market. I can just see this doing the opposite of growing the sport. Im not a fan.

At least we can be confident in the production because it's SB. JV, do you think not having a free pilot event is risky for the DGPT? You know how the internet can be and God forbid someone pays $5 and the broadcast isn't perfect.

Concurrent MPO/FPO seems like a new challenge right? Does streaming through a new platform have risks?

I'm buying for sure and I won't be crying regardless of how it turns out. I got two extra shots in my Latte and it was like $7. Robbery!

Does this mean they will have multiple cameras in multiple cards?

Or will they be jumping around based on the action?

If they are jumping around, I foresee them missing key shots/score swings.

Just in case anyone misinterprets you here, they are still promising next-day shot-by-shot coverage of MPO1 (Jomez), MPO2 (CCDG/Gatekeeper/ParSave), and FPO1 (GK Pro). The live footage may jump to other cards if they feel the need.

They are trying to monopolize the live portion of the DGPT. But there will always be plenty of other events and NTs and Majors if this isn’t someone’s cup of tea.
