Cash Line: DGN 2.0 Is Here as DGPT Ditches Vimeo

After some hiccups last weekend, will the new platform shine for the season opener?

Cash Line is an email newsletter for Ultiworld Disc Golf subscribers that focuses on the business of disc golf, with insider knowledge and original reporting. It is currently on hiatus as an email newsletter as we rebuild our email service after our provider shut down. We will re-launch the newsletter soon.

Full disclosure: I am a paid contractor with the Disc Golf Network as a play-by-play commentator on some DGPT events.

Maybe you saw all the fanfare from the Disc Golf Pro Tour back in December: Disc Golf Network 2.0!

From the DGPT:

The Disc Golf Network (DGN) is pleased to announce a major update to its core service with the migration of its content and customers away from Vimeo OTT to a newly built platform hosted by Insys Video Technologies (Insys VT) – an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Tier Services Partner. All DGN content is now available for viewing on a refreshed web app ( as well as on multiple supported mobile and smartTV applications.

The newly designed platform features many organizational changes and updates to the look and feel of Disc Golf Network. Content is now more easily navigable thanks to additional menu options, content groups that appear as sliders, and a new bookmarks function. Additionally, the new platform will allow subscribers to pause and rewind live broadcasts (live DVR functionality) and will process live broadcasts for instant replay (VOD) access almost instantaneously after each round has ended, meaning that subscribers won’t have to wait to rewatch a live broadcast once it’s over.

It’s kind of a “Thanks for joining us in 2024” situation here, as the severe technical limitations of DGN’s previous platform were the exception in the industry, not the rule. But there is no question that the new platform promises a substantially better streaming experience: it is simply a must to have the ability to pause and rewind a stream.

Cash Line: DGN 2.0 Is Here as DGPT Ditches Vimeo is only available to Ultiworld Subscribers
