FITE TV and Ring of Honor Wrestling (ROH) announced today that ROH’s weekly program is now available around the world on the FITE TV app starting Monday June 27th. The weekly ROH program that airs on Sinclair Broadcasting’s network of stations on weekends will now also be available every Monday starting at 7:00pm ET, and throughout the week for free on a Video on Demand (VOD) basis.

Ring of Honor Wrestling is a subsidiary of Sinclair Broadcast Group and features some of the best wrestlers in the world including ROH Champion Jay Lethal, ROH Tag Team Champions – The Addiction (Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels) and the Briscoe Brothers.
“Since our debut four months ago, we have had the opportunity to present over 100 live events on FITE TV, including Ring of Honor’s outstanding pay per views this year. This is the natural next step for our viewer base to offer weekly original programming with a consistent schedule,” said Michael Weber, FITE TV Senior Vice President of Marketing. “ROH fans now know that at 7:00pm ET, their favorite wrestling show can be viewed on either their mobile device or on their large screen television each week as a free VOD.”

Powell’s POV: The shows will continue to air on Sinclair stations and in syndication over the weekend, and then the shows will be made available on Mondays via FITE. The move can only help in terms of getting the show out there to more viewers.
