It seems that ROH has finally thrown in the towel when it comes to live streaming their PPVs. Last weekends issues with buffering during Best in the World 2013 seemed to be the straw that broke the camels back. I have ordered a few since they started live streaming and most of them worked without a hitch. It looks like the bad ones far outweighed the good ones though. Ring of Honor put out a statement to the fans on their Facebook which you can view below. It seems they will do a VOD approach for all their events now.
“To our fans,
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.
