ROH May Lose Dish Network This Week + Kevin Steen DVD


— Sinclair Broadcasting Group, the parent company of Ring of Honor, issued a statement on their official website, letting their viewers now that their current contract with The Dish Network to carry Sinclair’s networks expires as of tomorrow. If a new deal is not reached, It is possible that one of the two sides will pull the networks from the carrier, removing ROH on Sinclair with it. Here is the announcement…

Sinclair Broadcast Group began informing its viewers on August 3rd, 2012 that it does not expect the Dish Network to continue to carry any of Sinclair’s stations after the existing carriage agreement terminates on August 15, 2012. Although Dish and Sinclair have been negotiating for quite some time in an effort to reach a new agreement, at this time it does not appear that these efforts will be successful. Although Sinclair does not believe that it is constructive to negotiate its private business relationships in public, Sinclair is informing the public in advance of the end of carriage because it is aware of the impact on a segment of the public from the end of the relationship between the Sinclair stations and Dish.

We are very sorry that we have not been able to reach agreement with Dish and regret the inconvenience this will cause to Dish subscribers who want to continue to watch the extremely popular programming that airs on our stations. We wish to remind these subscribers that numerous other means exist for receiving our stations, including your local cable provider, DirecTV, and in some markets either Verizon FiOS or AT&T U-verse, as well as over-the air. Also we suggest that you call Dish at 1-888-926-5457 and let them know you want them to continue to carry your local stations.

With several choice words and the brutal crack of a steel chair, Kevin made his decision and a slow descent into madness that would grow to effect all of Ring of Honor began…

From the closing night of Steen & Generico’s ROH World Tag Title reign through the war at “Final Battle 2010” that brought this madman’s time in ROH to a temporary end, this 2-DVD set is a chronicle of the matches & the moments that saw Steen spiral out of control. From his tag team battles against The American Wolves & The Young Bucks with El Generico to his Steve Corino-influenced violent turn, this compilation includes Steen’s bouts against his former partner, bloody battles against Colt Cabana, his ROH World Championship battle against Tyler Black, and more!
