  3. im out of the loop here

    what does IPPV being back mean? did ROH stop doing these?
  4. Internet Pay Per Views have returned. I guess they did get rid of them if they have returned. I will probably order it if I have the money.
  5. ROH dropped IPPVs back in 2013 since they had a lot of technical issues with their provider at the time (go fight live) and they were not ready to use it. Ustream is the king of streaming though and with New Japan helping out (who run very successful and very lucrative IPPVs) they will most likely get it right this time around.

    Fingers crossed at least.
  6. ROH done ippvs(online only) before but there was major problems with the streams with viewers not seeing large parts of the events they had spent money on. This stream provided by Ustream has a excellent track record and should work. My guess is ROH would start using Ustream on a full time basis if the streams deliver.
  7. Hope all goes well for them. Nothing more annoying than technical issues stopping company growth.

  8. I'm interested to see how it plays out this time around, I know ROH WOTW is the night before my birthday so I might be getting wasted that night instead (Saturday) and stream that show if I remember during all the festivities haha.
    Amen! Only reason my business isn't independently owned anymore :emoji_slight_frown:
  9. As someone who's ordered at least a dozen New Japan's shows, I strongly recommend Ustream, very safe, simple and reliable. Great audio/video quality.
