Payment Questions

How do subscribers pause/cancel/upgrade/downgrade their subscription plan?
All subscription changes can be made at ultiworld.com/my-settings. Subscription payment happens at the beginning of the period that it covers and automatically renews.

If you pause or cancel your subscription in the middle of your pre-paid period, you will continue to receive all subscriber benefits through the end of that period. All other plan upgrades/downgrades take effect immediately and will be prorated with regards to your current paid period.

How do subscribers change their payment information?
Payment information can be managed at ultiworld.com/my-settings. You can change or delete your payment information at any time. All payments and card details are handled securely by Stripe.

What should I do if I already subscribed on VHX, but want to switch to one of the new Ultiworld subscriptions?
After you purchase an Ultiworld subscription and connect your existing VHX account, we will automatically cancel your old VHX-based recurring payments so that you are only paying in one place. You shouldn’t experience any interruption in access if you subscribe to a Full or Plus plan.

If you notice continuing charges from VHX even after you switched to one of the new subscriptions, please email support@ultiworld.com and we will make sure that gets straightened out.

Can I gift a subscription to someone else?
We are still working on a self-service way of purchasing a gift subscription. In the meantime, email support@ultiworld.com with the who/what/when of the gift and we can try to make it happen!

Can I donate a subscription?
We have a subscription donation program that provides Ultiworld subscriptions to players across the ultimate community. You can find out more information about contributing to this program with a donation (or applying to receive a donated subscription) here.

 


 

Article Benefit Questions

Where are the subscriber-only articles?
You can find our subscriber-only ultimate articles at ultiworld.com/tag/subscriber-paywall and features at ultiworld.com/feature. You can find our subscriber-only disc golf articles at discgolf.ultiworld.com/tag/subscriber-paywall and features at discgolf.ultiworld.com/feature.

Moving forward, most feature articles will only available to paid subscribers (indicated with a ) or visitors with a free Ultiworld Account (indicated with a ). A select few from the archives are available to everyone.

Why does the paywall still show up on articles even though I am a subscriber?
Depending on your browser, try doing a normal refresh and/or a hard refresh of the page (Ctrl+R and Ctrl+Shift+R in most Windows browsers or Command+R and Command+Shift+R in most Mac browsers). If that doesn’t change anything, try logging out, logging back in, and then doing the page refreshes.

 


 

Podcast Benefit Questions

How do I add the subscriber-only podcasts to a podcast app?
All of our subscriber-only podcasts and bonus segments can be listened to on-demand in the articles published alongside each new podcast episode. If you want these to show up automatically in your favorite podcasting app, you can use your private RSS feed. Find this subscriber-only URL under Podcast Settings on your My Settings page and enter it into iTunes or any other podcast app to automatically check each day for new episodes.

 


 

Discussion Benefit Questions

Where is the members-only discussion forums?
Members-only discussion happens in the Ultiworld Forums.

Log in to the forums with your existing Ultiworld account and then go to the appropriate category for the membership tier: Subscribers Only (all subscribers), Video Talk (full and plus subscribers), VIPS (plus subscribers).

How do I get invited to the Discord?
If you want access to the ultimate Discord server, you first need to have an active Full or Plus subscription and have indicated your interest in ultimate under Profile Settings.

New invites to Discord get sent as soon as you become a subscriber, so double-check the spam/trash/filters in your email account. If you can’t find your invite, but are sure you should have received one, you may have access to a backup invite link available from Discord Settings. If you are still having trouble joining our Discord server, please email support@ultiworld.com and we will get a new Discord invite out to you soon.

How do I connect my Discord account with my Ultiworld account?
Once you’ve joined our Discord server, remember to connect your Discord account with your Ultiworld account. You can do this by going to the Ultiworld My Settings page, scrolling to the Discord Settings section, and entering your full Discord Tag (it should look something like username#1234 and can be found on the bottom-left of the Discord interface next to your profile pic).

Connecting your Discord and Ultiworld accounts will unlock subscriber-only channels and other perks in our Discord server. If you are having trouble connecting your accounts or don’t see the subscriber benefits appearing for you in Discord, please send a Discord message in the #discord-help channel or email support@ultiworld.com.

How do I get invited to the Slack?
If you want access to the disc golf Slack workspace, you first need to have an active Mini subscription and have indicated your interest in disc golf under Profile Settings.

New invites to Slack go out weekly, so don’t worry if you don’t immediately receive an invite. If it’s been longer than a week, please email support@ultiworld.com and we will get a new Slack invite out to you soon.

If you want access to the ultimate Slack workspace, we’ve moved that over to Discord, so see the above questions for more information about getting access to that.

 


 

Ad Benefit Questions

How do subscribers turn off ads?
Subscribers can enable/disable banner ads as their subscription plan allows by going to ultiworld.com/my-settings.

Why do ads still show up even though I turned them off?
Depending on your browser, try doing a normal refresh and/or a hard refresh of the current page (Ctrl+R and Ctrl+Shift+R in most Windows browsers or Command+R and Command+Shift+R in most Mac browsers). If that doesn’t change anything, try logging out, logging back in, and then doing the page refreshes.

 


 

Video Benefit Questions

What are the differences in the subscription video benefits? Classic Games vs. Full Subscription vs. Early Access?
Our Classic Games Package is a small selection of great games that Ultiworld has filmed over the years available for all subscriber tiers.

The Full Subscription lets you watch all the content we have on VHX: past, present, and future.

Early Access is available for Plus Subscribers and provides immediate archive access to all of our livestreamed games on YouTube (completed livestreams are otherwise unavailable while they are being moved to VHX which usually takes 12-24 hours).

How do I access the videos on VHX? I already paid for a subscription on Ultiworld, but VHX is telling me I still need to subscribe?
You can find the Classic Games Package as well as all the rest of our video archives on VHX. To access the videos with an Ultiworld subscription, go to ultiworld.com/my-settings and either connect your subscription to an existing VHX account (if you’ve bought video products from us before) or create a new VHX account. Then the videos will automatically become accessible on VHX and the settings page will have shortcuts to all your VHX video products for future ease-of-access.

If VHX continues to tell you to subscribe when you try to watch a video, make sure that you are logged in on VHX, that your Ultiworld account is connected to your VHX account, and that your subscription is still active. If you continue to receive this message, email support@ultiworld.com and we will make sure you can access your videos.

Can I download videos from my subscription?
Downloading games directly is not an option except for those teams that opt to get a Team Pack.

However, the VHX apps that power our video library offer ‘offline sync,’ a feature that allows you to pre-load games to your devices for viewing without an internet connection. For 95% of our users, this feature should solve the biggest reason for wanting to be able to download games: to watch on the go.

If you feel strongly about being able to directly download games, please email us at support@ultiworld.com.

How do subscribers vote on filmed and/or streamed games?
All members-only discussion happens in the Ultiworld Forums.

Log in to the forums with your existing Ultiworld account and then go to the appropriate category for the membership tier: Subscribers Only (all subscribers), Video Talk (full and plus subscribers), VIPS (plus subscribers).

 


 

Interest Benefit Questions

How do I get access to the ultimate and/or disc golf side of the benefits?
With any Ultiworld subscription you will have access to both ultimate benefits and disc golf benefits all in one subscription. Articles are automatically unlocked on both websites, but to activate every single one of the benefits, you need to make sure to check the appropriate “I’m interested in…” boxes under Profile settings on the My Settings page. This setting allows us to make sure we don’t direct you toward benefits you aren’t interested in. Once you update your interests there, all the relevant benefits will appear under their respective sections on the My Settings page.

 


 

Other Questions

What’s the difference between an Ultiworld account, a Disqus account, a VHX account, and a Gumroad account?
We use Disqus as our comment platform and our new policy now requires that you create a Disqus account before commenting. We use VHX to host our video archives in 2016 and beyond. Prior to that, we used Gumroad to provide video archives (2015 and earlier). Ultiworld accounts are used for all other features on ultiworld.com, including buying and accessing an Ultiworld subscription.

What happened to the Individual Pack?
You will notice that we have removed the option to purchase an “individual pack”: a pay-upfront package for an entire college or club season. We know many have chosen this option in the past, but simplifying and standardizing our subscription helps us to focus on providing a high quality experience for all of our members.

Because we have reduced prices for the monthly Full Subscription, subscribing for an entire college season (or club season — or both!) is less expensive than the previous individual packs!

Can I delete my account?
We will be sorry to see you go, but just email support@ultiworld.com from your account’s associated email and we can delete your account and all of your data.

Who should I contact if I have additional questions?
Please email support@ultiworld.com if you have questions about purchasing subscriptions or Ultiworld accounts in general.
