Had a horrible experience ordering ROH PPV's off the PC and attaching via HDMI to TV last year.  Quality even on the PC itself was awful.

Is it any better if you view through th Roku?

Just a little side to this question, but what are the options of paying for these IPPV shows Taylor?
Credit card obviously, but do they also accept payment through debit or paypal, and is it like TV PPV's where you can order it right up to the start of the actual event?

They definitely take PayPal and believe you can order even mid way through as you're still entitled to the replay.

I have a ROKU but I have never ordered an IPPV from ROH (or any other wrestling promotion). However, the ROKU does have a channel that features ROH matches and has fairly decent video / audio quality. I would assume that if the same media company is streaming the IPPV then the quality would be close to the same as the quality on the ROH channel.

The Roku Channel Store has a free channel that shows ROH, TNA, and a couple others. My Roku is only SD (bought it 2 years ago). I have been thinking about buying the new HD version but haven't made the purchase yet.

I don't know about Roku, but on the web, the ROH iPPVs are in higher definition for the replays than when streaming live.
