Honor Club is a OTT streaming service owned by professional wrestling promotion Ring of Honor. Development of a VOD service was announced on November 9, 2017 by ROH COO Joe Koff.[1] Honor Club was formally announced on February 2, 2018[2][3] and the service officially launched on February 19, 2018.[4][5] Honor Club operates similarly to WWE Network and Impact Wrestling's Global Wrestling Network, in that pay-per-view events are available to stream through the service, but unlike its aforementioned competitors, some membership tiers must pay extra for these events.

Honor Club has a tiered pricing model that also offers discounts on merchandise and advances on ticket sales.[6] The service currently has two tiers, both of which contain special discounts as well as access to the ROH TV archive. The basic tier, which includes a 50% discount on pay-per-views, is available for a monthly subscription price of $9.99 or one annual payment of $99.99. The VIP subscription costs $119.99 annually and provides live-streaming access to all future pay-per-view events and access the ROH PPV archive with no additional costs.[7]

With Honor Club, Sinclair Broadcast Group (Ring of Honor's parent company) now provides five streaming services. Honor Club joins Sinclair's existing four digital multicast networks for digital terrestrial television (Comet, Charge!, Stadium, and TBD), all of which also broadcast online. Like Comet and Stadium, Honor Club is also available through smart TVs and set-top boxes such as Roku and Apple TV, as well as mobile apps.[8]
