    DKTV?

    This sounds promising

    Did CSU make an announcement that he works for DK and I missed it?

    So confused today.

    Really excited about this new feature and while it took a bit of a backseat in terms of DK news today (understatement of the century), there’s a lot more to come from this platform.

    If anyone’s curious, you can check it out here:

    https://www.draftkings.com/dktv

    We’ll be focusing on live tournament analysis and coverage, promotions/giveaways, and DK tutorials. With that in mind, our first promo is giving away two DK Swag Bags for using the #DKTV on Twitter between now and July 22nd.

    Look forward to hearing everyone’s feedback!

    One would think this has to be linked into rotogrinders somehow or they wouldn’t allow this posting.

    DKTV could be a great new feature. Wish there wasn’t all this cloak and dagger.

    OMG. There is already a video up with the smooth talking Peter “CSURam” Jennings. Please allow me to excuse myself for the next few minutes.

    Very cool. I always found the best part of GL was the night sweats editions.

    The goal wasn’t cloak and dagger, as our target date to launch was July 15th all along so we could announce the first show for the Mid Summer Classic next Tuesday.

    As far as interfering with what RG does, I know first hand all of the incredible material put out by RotoGrinders. The goals of DKTV are to bring players a better experience on DraftKings and increase their interest in the industry, not takeover RG’s audience.

    There’s a large percentage of DK players who don’t use RG, and for them it’s an opportunity to be a part of the daily fantasy community.

    Was thinking the same thing.

    And if you heard the convo on siriusxm friday morning one would think csuram shouldn’t be able to play on DK any more… Well, i guess depending on what side of the fence you fall on.

    My initial thought about this channel, or maybe 2nd thought after the above, was DB has got to be pissed! We don’t know all the particulars so maybe RG is involved which would be a much different story.

    I’d certainly love to here more about this.

    Yeah I’m kind of wondering the same thing. Isn’t this basically a direct competitor now of Rotogrinders?

    There is a lot of “inside baseball” going in dfs. Some I have first hand knowledge and other that are rumors. Kind of sucks when things are being spun. (Not necessarily DKTV)

    Btw I respect and admire Csu. Great guy, great player. Dk is a great place for dfs. Just a lot to digest in one day.

    Yep. Very annoying. After you select the video. Click on the black screen. You’ll see “youtube” on the top right. Click on that and your youtube app will launch and the video will play.

    Thanks. Saw the words on the top left, but my thumb covered the top right, so I missed it. Yes, recommend embedding for tablets.

    We’re not involved and not pissed at all. I think this is a natural content evolution for a maturing site. Here’s an example from poker:

    http://www.pokerstars.tv/

    As DK and FD have to worry less about the basics they’ll have more time and resources for things like this. I don’t think they’ll get into the hardcore daily picks and lineup analysis, which is the foundation of the three hours of GrindersLive broadcasts each day.

    Thanks Cal.

    Care to comment on csuram? That certainly appears to be a conflict of interest. (Just to be clear i have no issues with csuram. I’ve enjoyed him on GL.)

    Whatever the case, i look forward to GL. This will be my first NFL/CFB season with GL. can’t wait!!!

    FCK

    Just want to clarify that I am not an employee of Draftkings and have zero access to any internal tools. My goal has always been to promote the industry and to play the game I love.

    Draftkings is launching a new program and they have asked me to be a part of it. Stay tuned for the next #DKTV episode on July 22nd where we will have other announcements and the MidSummer Classic sweat.

    Rotogrinders has been huge for me and the industry and I’ll continue to have a big presence on GrindersLive. I know today has been an eventful day for the industry and am happy to answer any other questions.

    Which guys are working for these sites ? Are they allowed to play on the sites they work for ? If so, I won’t be playing on these sites. It comes to trust and with that much $$$ involved I’ll just say no.

    Anyone who works for a site is not allowed to play on the site.

    This is correct. We have a very strict policy against our employees playing on the site in any public league.

  • Insidethewrappe

    So they are working on DKTV for free ?

  • searchmonkey

    Interested in this as well.

  • Frickman81

    Coming from a noobie I agree!!! I won close to 40k in a month in a half I had two fairly large cashes before I knew anything about rg and signed up but after reading these posts and players that we play against working or helping the site we play at is alarming. Then on top of that all this talk about msg or whatever it is and buying ds makes you wonder

    Honest question for the guys who are against CSU doing this and being able to play on the site.

    If DK pays a guy to wear a patch at a poker tourney should he be allowed to play on DK?

    He is making videos for them which has nothing to do with playing the game itself.

  • badtouch

    me too, I’m a little uncomfortable with this as well.

    There’s the whole appearance of impropriety thing that kinda bugs me.
