Rooster Teeth Announces New Youtube Strategy And Content Development!
Rooster Teeth Productions, the online entertainment giant behind the award-winning web series Red vs. Blue, is proud to announce a major new development in the company’s 10-year history. The Rooster Teeth YouTube channel, which has grown to become the #15 most watched YouTube channel of all time, the #19 most subscribed to YouTube channel, and is #11 in overall channel views, is no longer a partner channel with Machinima. Rooster Teeth’s YouTube channel has long been the #1 partner channel on Machinima, averaging over 1 billion video views per year and recently surpassing 4 million subscribers. The channel is on-track to hit 2 billion video views this coming week. The complete Rooster Teeth series lineup is listed below.
Rooster Teeth made the decision to strike out on their own based on the continued growth of their YouTube channel and several big programming initiatives that launch today, including officially adding videos by internet sensation The Slow Mo Guys to the Rooster Teeth YouTube channels lineup. Rooster Teeth is celebrating this news with “Explosion Week,” in which The Slow Mo Guys will premiere a new, mind-blowing video each day the week of April 22nd on The Slow Mo Guys YouTube channel.
Additionally, Rooster Teeth’s Achievement Hunter series Let’s Play, which regularly averages over a millions views per video, has spun-off into its very own channel. Launching today, the new Let’s Play YouTube channel will continue to bring fans hilarious game play videos in which the Rooster Teeth gang take each other on at classic video games and new releases. Rounding out the Rooster Teeth YouTube channels roster is the Game Fails YouTube Channel, which has an impressive 117 million views and 340 thousand subscribers.
On top of their original Internet content, Rooster Teeth continues to reach fans through the award-winning Rooster Teeth Podcast and RTX (Rooster Teeth Expo). The podcast was recently named the #2 most downloaded podcast on iTunes and gives fans a weekly dose of the Rooster Teeth crew discussing gaming, pop culture topics, and their current projects. The 3rd annual RTX returns to the Austin Convention Center this July 5 – 7 for another 3-day event that brings gaming and Internet cultures together with exhibitors, Internet icons, YouTube stars, and special guests from around the country in attendance. Fans and consumers will once again have the opportunity to play unreleased video games and sit in on panels and hands-on workshops led by industry experts, their favorite Internet content creators, and the Rooster Teeth team.
