I just wanted to remind people that if they haven't done so, set your DVR's for HDNet @ 8pm tomorrow the 21st for ROH. It's ch 306 for DirecTV, check your local listings for other carriers.

If you don't have HD cable or satellite, I guess you're out of luck.

I've heard alot of great things over the years and I want to see if it lives up to the hype. Except for Santino's antics, both WWE and TNA have annoyed me to no end that I haven't had the urge to watch it for a couple years now. Reading the recaps, I feel I'm not missing much, except for ECW.

Honestly, if there is a match that was a must see according to the recaps, I can usually catch them on youtube before they get pulled.

I am saddened that Comcast doesn't offer HDNet. I would be watching the ROH and the MMA shows all the time. I hope that this partnership opens doors for both companies.

Our Comcast offers HDNet.

Oh, so I'm gonna recap it for Rick (and probably hide it over here somewhere). Go hunting for that in about 24!

Our Comcast has HDnet (and HDNet movies) on a separate, special tier for $4.95/month, which is ridiculous, so no ROH for me until it that tier goes away in a month or so and gets added to the normal package.

To paraphrase CRZ re PPV rematches on Raw: You're a sucker if you paid for it!

That used to be how it was over here, but somewhere along the line they dropped HDNet Movies from the lineup and threw HDNet into the existing HD package. We also lost MOJO about the same time, which was kind of a bummer, but I found out that that was due to the channel actually shutting down.

Is it sad that this is the first I've heard of MOJO disappearing? Didn't even notice its absence in the guide.

And yet, no HDNet for us. Le sigh.

Comcast in Detroit (Hamtramck to be exact) has a channel called HDT. I thought that might be HDNET but it only plays "car shows". What channel is that anyways, it doesn't have an icon on the screen.

I wish I had free ROH, but even a search for "ROH" or "Ring of Honor" produces nothing.

That's "HD Theater" (dhd.discovery.com) - those Mecum auctions are somethin' else.

Yeah, I was also hoping that the HDT was HDNet, but alas it was not. I just searched through all my channels and verified that I do not have HDNet.

Time to "contact my local cable operator."

On a whim I clicked over to HDNet to see if i was available yet (supposed to change over Mid-April) and got to see most of the last three matches! I was really impressed with how much it looked and sounded like an actual sport, and then the Albright match started and it shifted a bit more toward the entertainment side.

The announcers were amazingly professional and I really liked how they focused on the actual calling of the match, and less on the matches coming up, other storylines, etc.

I would lean toward watching it again (and my wife was interested too, which never happens with wrestling)

It's a fact, chicks dig ROH!

We always bring our friends to the Detroit shows and they have a really good time even if they're not fans. I recommend checking one out when/if they're in your area.
