Ring of Honor finished with iPPV

After another notable technical failure, Ring of Honor has announced that they will no longer be producing live iPPV content.

This past weekend saw Ring of Honor (ROH) running their annual Best in the World card from Baltimore, Maryland. While the action was good, ROH once again had issues with their live streaming of the event.

Best in the World 2013 seems to have been the straw that broke the camel's back. After a long line of infamous iPPV issues, the promotion has announced it will cease to stream any of its cards live via that particular method.

The company issued the following statement on its Facebook page:

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.
