Update @ 1:15 p.m. CT - New image below with up-to-date schedule!
You all know how much I love testing stuff. Well, two amazing things have happened this year that gave us an idea. First, Funhaus launched Funhaus TV on their YouTube channel, which has proven to be an amazing way to spend your day with the FH guys and gal (and dog) even though they might not have even posted a new video. Second, the new svod.roosterteeth.com/live went into beta, and you guys flocked to our new chat feature. That got us thinking…
What if there was an always-on campfire on RT.com where you could come by, interact with friends and RT talent and staff in a chat, and check out whatever was on TV?
Tomorrow we’re trying just that. Starting 3/16 at 10a CT (TUNE IN NOW!) and continuing late into the night, free for everyone to watch and with no commercials for the test run, we’ve hacked together a linear TV channel. It’s packed with videos we’ve posted in the last 2 weeks (including previews of some FIRST exclusives), a few other greatest hits from our library, and heck let’s just put Friday's live Off Topic in the middle. You can tune in any time you want and find something awesome playing, plus a few RT talent will pop in and out of the chat too.
The morning is all cartoons (because of course it is), including the premiere episode of Nomad of Nowhere, plus a little Backwardz Compatible. Whenever Off Topic ends, we’ll dive into more comedy and a few other talk shows like this week’s Always Open and RT Podcast. Late night be sure to check out free previews of the Funhaus Theater Mode premiere episode, and an AH Theater Mode too.
If this works...I’ll get to buy some cool software to help us make it work better. So please, help me get a new toy. Have fun! (Seriously, go tune in and check it out!)
