Due to more issues during the ROH “Best in the World” iPPV over the weekend, the company will be ending their LIVE iPPV streams for the time being. As most of you know, there were major buffering issues during the show on Saturday night. This is just the latest in a long line of streaming issues that the promotion has had, both with in-house iPPVs and through third parties. The promotion will instead make the PPVs available through Video On Demand (VOD) the day after the live event.
The promotion issued the following statement today:
This past weekend at “Best in the World” in Baltimore, MD , Ring of Honor proved once again from top to bottom why our talent is truly the best in wrestling today. Unfortunately, there were some issues with the live iPPV stream that wound up distracting from the energy and action in ring. For this, we sincerely apologize to all fans that encountered problems.
Because of how much we value the support of our fans, and understand the imperfections of the live streaming technology, “Best in the World” will be the last iPPV stream that we will be broadcasting live. All future main event shows will now be offered as a Video On Demand, which will allow Ring of Honor to present a flawless show and truly depict the excellence of our product.
From now on, fans can watch ROH Wrestling on TV, VOD, or DVD, however there is still nothing like seeing Ring of Honor in person. We thank you for your continued support and are excited to be moving forward.
