Hey everyone - hopefully you’re already aware that the 16th season of Red vs. Blue is premiering for FIRST members on Sunday, April 15 at 8:00 a.m. CDT. It’s going to be our sixteenthiest season ever. The show is now old enough to drive a car or something. It’s going to be awesome, just watch.


If you’re not yet a FIRST member, you should correct that, but in the meantime let me tell you about how we’re going to be releasing this show for everyone to see.


We have a long history of trying out new things with Red vs. Blue. That sounds oddly sexual but it’s not. What I mean is, our most loyal viewers have a long history of watching it on the Rooster Teeth site. In fact, there was literally nowhere else to watch it until season 6. Caboose hadn’t even invented YouTube yet. I think Woodrow Wilson was still president. It was a totally different world back then. Possibly much better.


So, things change, and then sometimes they change back again in delightful ways. With our new and improved site and mobile apps, there’s even more reason to watch Red vs. Blue right here at its original home. Because of that, we have decided to release Red vs. Blue episodes free to the public on the Rooster Teeth site and mobile apps a mere one week after they go up for FIRST members. They will be posted to YouTube at some point in the future, but the only way to watch them for free one week after their initial release is on the Rooster Teeth site and mobile apps.


We are committed to making our new viewing experience the best it can be, and bringing our community together on the same platform is a huge priority for us. This new season of Red vs. Blue is the perfect way to experiment with that. As it stands, this is the only show with this release schedule – our plan is to leave RWBY’s schedule the same as it has been.


If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below. If you have praise and adoration, you can leave a comment too. Or maybe combine both, like “How can you be so awesome?” Just go nuts.


We’re excited about making our site and apps the best place to watch Rooster Teeth content, and your feedback is crucial in that process. Thanks everyone and can’t wait to watch the show with you this Sunday.


- Matt
