Rooster Teeth is a fan-propelled community that produces game reviews, comedy shows, podcasts, machinima, and original episodic content. From humble beginnings back in 2003 the company has expertly navigated internet culture and trending media to grow a fan base that is now millions strong.

Their first claim to fame was the hilarious cult classic Halo machinima, Red vs. Blue (2003), an expansive series that pushed them into expanding towards live-action comedy content, original shows, movies, and podcasts. The widely popular RWBY (2013) is a result of their collaboration with the late Monty Oum.

Rooster Teeth is available in three subscription tiers: One free, and two premium. Premium subscriptions allow for offline viewing, reduced ads, early access to ticket sales for their events, early access to videos, and live content. Since Rooster Teeth creates its own content exclusively, the service does not offer any TV shows or movies that are not their own IP. Rooster Teeth also does not allow for multiple profiles or simultaneous streaming, and does not offer parental controls or kid-specific content. It does, however, allow for a 7-day free trial.

Movies

Rooster Teeth is largely known for their episodic content, but they’ve also made a few feature length films produced and distributed by YouTube Red, or crowdfunded via Indiegogo.
