Any idea when DGN will get support for Sony TVs? Holding out until that gets added.

Sony has used a few different operating systems in the past. What version are you using? If it is a newer one, it COULD be on AndroidTV and that might work with the Android app. I will have to check and see if that is the case on my AndroidTV system at home.

If it is an older one... you will forever be out of luck.

Just picked it up this fall, so shouldn't be too out of date. Searched for DGN the other day, but nothing showed up.

I know they already have a post round show that goes up there. And I think that Mo has plans for more of that stuff soon. I think that may include post production rounds of the Silver Series events. Not 100% sure on this.

As for why they don't charge by event. The platform doesn't exactly support it yet officially (But I think it CAN be done from what I see). Vimeo has few subscriber options when live broadcasting is involved. Monthly & Yearly. The plan was to originally have the PDGA membership give you something like 20% off a yearly sub. But the platform didn't support yearly discounts, only monthly. So that is why the PDGA membership gets you a monthly discount. But all those features are in the Vimeo OTT roadmap.
Quoting you just to get your attention:
Do you know if the Vimeo OTT roadmap includes being able to change the playback speed? I like being able to pause the YouTube feed for a while and coming back to it and setting it at 1.5x until I catch back up to the live feed.

That never came up in any discussions. So I can’t say.

I reserved my judgment until the Memorial was over. I'm in on subbing this year for sure. Especially if the product improves along the way - the Memorial was the best live broadcast I can remember (in terms of technical execution, commentary is completely subjective) If I'm being honest, it would have taken a lot for me to not pay to watch - if it was a repeat of last year I definitely would not have jumped on board.

New info this week from JVD on Smashboxx and Jeff Spring on Johnny Discgolf.

JVD says they have approximately 1500 subscribers already. Jeff confirmed "over 1,000" and "over their goal for the year".

This is after a free weekend of coverage. You have to assume as we get to the week of Waco it's going to grow.

That's a big win. That's a lot of revenue the tour did not get last year.

Two takeaways from that:

Todd has to feel better about his investment and makes it more likely we will have steady, reliable ownership moving foward.

Secondly, that revenue is almost certainly going to be reinvested in the tour. That could mean more cameras and more card coverage. Could mean better technology to allow record and replay when both cards are throwing at the same time so we miss fewer shots. Could mean more personnel, maybe another person working alongside JVD so he doesn't have to be the producer AND the switcher at the same time.

One thing is guaranteed, the product is only going to get better and become an even more appealing subscription.

I was cautiously pessimistic about this paywalled thing, I think I was wrong.

My takeaway.....Steve Dodge was really correct, all along.
