Ring of Honor announced the following details regarding their HonorClub streaming service via ROHwrestling.com on Friday.
Ring of Honor is proud to officially announce HonorClub.
With the imminent launch of HonorClub, the Ringside Membership will be deprecated to make way for this new and improved HonorClub. In addition to live streaming ROH Pay Per Views and On Tour events, and a vast on demand library, HonorClub will be the destination to connect wrestling fans with exclusive content, offers, and more.
LIVE STREAMING & VOD
Ring of Honor will begin live streaming ROH On Tour events! Live events will also be accessible anytime as part of the VOD library which also includes complete access to the ROH TV Archive, and the VOD Vault containing historical events, compilations, interviews, and more. Standard Memberships will include a 50% discount on ROH’s major Pay Per Views when bought digitally, however an Annual VIP Membership will include all Pay Per Views for FREE!
HonorClub memberships also include exclusive access to all ROH event ticket pre-sales and 15% off all ROH-branded products in the ROH Pro Shop, in addition to any other discounts or sales. Many fans have also asked about the ROH Forum, and even though there is a large world of social media, there is nothing like having an intimate ROH community to engage with. The ROH Forum returns as an exclusive to HonorClub members!
PRICING & RINGSIDE MEMBERSHIP ROLLOVER
Ringside Members will automatically become an HonorClub member until their subscription expires. At that time, previous members can decide how they would like to proceed with their HonorClub membership. The various plans will include both monthly and annual options for the Standard Membership. Fans can choose whether they would like to pay $9.99 per month or a discounted $99.99 for the entire year. However, for the ultimate Ring of Honor experience, fans will have the option to purchase an Annual VIP membership for just $119.99. This package includes all of the wonderful features of the Standard Membership, but it also gives you free access to all ROH Pay Per Views!
HOW TO ACCESS HONORCLUB
At initial launch, HonorClub will be available on your computer or personal device through ROHWrestling.com.
HonorClub will also be available through the new ROH App on Android and iOS, and channels on Roku, Apple TV, and Android TV as a Beta version for select fans. In an effort to provide fans with a quality user experience, these platforms will be tested thoroughly during this phase with an official launch coming very soon.
Powell’s POV: The ROH website describes the launch of the streaming service as “imminent”. I see this as the biggest pro wrestling streaming service launch since WWE Network. Other companies may have beaten ROH to the punch, but ROH has a loaded video library and it’s good to see that they will be including their pay-per-view events on the premium tier. The pricing is in line with WWE Network, though it will cost an extra $2 per month for the pay-per-view events to be included. Here’s hoping that this streaming service is worth the wait as much as I believe it will be. One can only hope that the service will be functional with Chromecast initially and via even more platforms once they launch the ROH app. Thanks to Dot Net Member Don Murphy for passing along the story.
