Ring Of Honor COO Talks About Company's New Television Deal, Availability Of Network, More

Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff spoke to Busted Open Radio this week about the company's new television deal with Comet. You can see highlights below, and the full interview at this link.

The move to Comet:

"Comet was launched on October 31st so we're on – what? – November 16th? So this is a 17-day-old, basically, network….One of the things that I'm most proud of, and it's by being part of Sinclair, is that unlike any other promotion, and I don't have to name them, we will always be available to the consumer for free because our platforms are over-the-air free, the Sinclair platforms. On October 31st when we, and I say we, launch Comet, we did this in conjunction with a partnership with MGM and MGM has a tremendous, tremendous library of science-fiction programming and movies. We thought that Ring of Honor would be the perfect companion for some of that programming which is why we made the move to Comet….Comet is one of our owned platforms, like I said, in partnership with MGM so we saw it as a natural place to go for our Ring of Honor weekly television show."

The availability of Comet:

"Actually, Comet reaches more homes than Destination America in its initial launch footprint. We're in New York, Chicago, LA, those markets, automatically. We're getting those markets – Philadelphia, Seattle, Denver. We're getting those markets so you're really not losing Ring of Honor in those markets. You're just going to have to locate them at a different place, which is not uncommon. It's not uncommon in our industry. Those markets are available and, by the way, not allowed to talk about the group, but after January 1st, there's going to be a huge group, a broadcasting group, that's also going to join the Comet network. We're really excited about that….We've really done a good job in 'expanding our brand', as we say, but the fan can watch the weekly television on our website for no charge as well. There's not a person in the world, really, if you want to know the truth, that can't access Ring of Honor weekly programming at no charge."
