I hope that this means they will be coming back and doing mor shows in the area. I went to both of the ROH shows that they did at Michael's 8th Ave a few years back. They were good shows.

No love for New England, specifically Massachusetts? Damn.

To bad nothing in the Atlanta market. I would of liked to check ROH out

Bummer!!! No metro Atlanta stations.

Considering ROH's consistent presence at the Hammerstein Ballroom/Manhattan Center, it's a shame Sinclair doesn't have a station in the New York City metro area.

Will you be posting thoughts on the show, like you do for TNA, Raw, and Smackdown?

RESPONSE FROM KE: Yes.

Um....not airing in the New York City/Long Island area I suppose? That seems retarded, seeing that one of ROH's biggest markets is that area.

I see I can't watch RIng Of Honor since I'm from California. Are they going to show Ring Of Honor on the web or something?

RESPONSE FROM KE: The show will be available on ROH's web site.

Why they have chosen to air the product so late at night is a puzzling choice to me but who am I? Weekend afternoons would have been much better they will have a hard time getting viewers at 10,11, and 12am on the weekends.

Hey Kev,

Just wondering if you know whether or not ROH will be airing in the U.K.? Thanks.

RESPONSE FROM KE: Nothing was discussed about the show being shown outside the U.S.

Ding Ding Ding! When does it start airing?

Looking forward to seeing it. be the 1st time for me to see R0H

Was looking forward to watching roh but no love for DFW huh

Anything down here for Miami, Fl? Or thru a website?

I'm especially looking forward to the inevitable move to taping studio shows in Baltimore, so I can go.

Why is it not shown in the metro Atlanta area ?

Glad to see ROH back on TV. They have a great product and performers who bust their tails every night.

As for time slots, airtime isn't cheap. A late night slot that may cost $150-200 for a half hour will cost $1100 on late Sunday morning. It's a lot of money to put a show on TV all over the nation.

So If I live in the Evansville, Indiana area I won't be able to see the show? Wow, there deal with HDnet was better.

I'm so bummed they don't have a presence in Wichita.

Are there any details on how it's going to work? Obviously, it won't be live. I have no concept of what their schedule is like. Will each week's show be new? What about the cities who have multiple showings? Reruns?

At least they're going to broadcast their episodes on the internet as well. I'm really looking forward to getting to know RoH. If they've produced guys like C.M. Punk and Brian Daniel(son), they must be good.

I am disappointed there is no station to watch ROH in the Orlando area. :(

No love for Houston, Tx??? What's up with that---San Antonio gets it but we dont, WTF????

Great for these guys...sucks for the NY-Philadelphia markets. Give them some time, I guess. Nothing in California or New England either...ouch. Maybe Comcast will pick up something from one of these markets.

Luke, you don't get the Paducah or Nashville channels do you?

Not to sound like a complete idiot, but who are the stars of ROH? Any familiar names?

RESPONSE FROM KE: As far as guys who used to work for WWE, Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas are there. Also, Daniels from TNA.

I live in Houston but am from Detroit, and i don't get one in either city. soooo lame

If CM Punk ends up leaving WWE and came back to ROH, I'd be in every week.

YAY!!!! I can finally watch! And I have an reason to watch WUCW (the Minneapolis-St. Paul CW station) again. Haven't had a reason to watch since the series finale of Smallville.

So no market in Austin,Tx capital of the LONE STAR STATE . That leaves me with dumb azz storyline wwe .Thanks alot

Hopefully, MYTV will pick up the show in the fall here in the NJ/NYC area.

what is ROH official website

Jim no TV in Charlotte NC as Ron Simmons said Damn!

What about Philadelphia?

so we finally get HDNet down here in south jersey and all of a sudden the deal goes. NOW they have a deal with Sinclair and there's no Philadelphia station that televises it!

I'm not going to watch it on the website either before that gets mentioned. ROH NEEDS a major TV deal for me to take it seriously regardless whom is in charge of the product
