Just over a month ago, not that time matters anymore, we put out the sad news that RTX Austin is cancelled this year (https://roosterteeth.com/g/post/faa866f8-1beb-42d5-8c3f-026879b31878). As this was to be the 10th RTX Austin, we were hoping to make it the biggest and best celebration of the Rooster Teeth community ever. But since we can’t spend time together at the ACC this year, we’re creating a virtual event to bring all of you special people together via the magic of the internet. Please join us for ***RTX at Home, September 15-25, 2020,*** for panels, news, surprise reveals, special guests, and general fun and mayhem with all of us here at Rooster Teeth. We have the first details below, but there will be MORE TO COME, so keep an eye on the RTX event site, Twitter, and your email inbox so you don’t miss out on anything.
****When is RTX at Home?****
RTX at Home programming will run September 15-25, 2020, with a break in live activity on the weekend, September 19-20. Instead of live streams on the weekend, we’ll drop recaps and rebroadcast panels from the first four days.
****How do I watch RTX at Home programming?****
Good question. First, we want to be clear that participating in RTX at Home has nothing to do with purchasing a badge for RTX Austin. Whether you bought a RTX Austin badge or not, you are still able to join in the RTX at Home fun. There will generally be four types of programming events at RTX at Home:
– Free programming: Certain panels and events will be available for anyone to watch on roosterteeth.com and the Rooster Teeth apps. A complete list of this programming will be coming soon, but we’ll just tell you now that the RWBY and Red vs. Blue panels will be free. You’re welcome.
– FIRST member programming: We’ll be able to provide a lot of free programming during RTX at Home, and this is in large part due to the ongoing support of our FIRST members. As a thank you to these amazing people, many of the panels will be available to watch on Rooster Teeth for FIRST members only. If you want to check out all of the panels and daytime programming at RTX at Home, you’re going to want to be a FIRST member. Signing up is easy and supports us making more cool shows, so hop over here and join up! (https://roosterteeth.com/first-promo/)
– Nighttime programming: Sadly, we won’t be raving or going to comedy shows with you guys in Austin this year, but we’ll do our best to recreate the vibe with virtual nighttime events. These events will require a ticket purchase, and FIRST members will have early access, so keep an eye out for the schedule and ticketing info soon.
– Virtual Talent Experiences: If you’ve seen what some other conventions are doing, this might look familiar to you. We will have ticketed virtual experiences for you to purchase such as virtual live meet-and-greets with your Rooster Teeth favs, personalized video recordings, group happy hours, and more! These experiences will be limited, and FIRST members will have early access to tickets, so we’ll be sure to blast the news far and wide when the details become available.
****Where do I watch RTX at Home programming?****
RTX at Home programming will be broadcast on roosterteeth.com and the Rooster Teeth apps, unless otherwise noted.
****Hey, there’s still RTX merch!****
For many of you, shopping for new and exclusive merch is a big part of the RTX experience. We don’t want to let you down, so we’re just going to start rolling it out right now!
