Update: Linear Stream - Rooster TV - begins tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. CDT / 3:00 p.m. GMT HERE!
I hope you’ve been having a great week. The engineering team has definitely been enjoying this week because we’ve been seeing more and more of you using the new video site and joining in the chat during live shows. Seriously, thank you for using the site and sending us your feedback. (You can also post in the forums with other people who are checking it out!) We’re squashing a lot of bugs and will be ready to fully launch this bad boy soon. Keep watching, and tell everyone you know to JOIN US. O.O
And yes, new mobile apps are still coming, and will launch the same day we fully launch the site. We’re doing some pretty intense internal testing right now, and I’m hoping to be able to show y’all some things next week. Stay tuned.
I also want to take some time to talk about the community side of the site. Just a reminder that when we launch the new video site, the current community site will still be there. Your profile, feeds, etc. will continue as you know them now while we work on the new community platform. When the video site launches, you’ll be able to access community via the menu on the left hand side of the page. New community is moving along really well. There’s a team of of engineers and designers working on it right now, and I presented some of the latest concepts to Matt and Ezra last week. We’re building something really exciting and can’t wait to show you more.
Oh hey, last thing. Next Friday, March 16, we’re going to be testing out something really cool on the new site. Starting in the morning we’re going to test out several hours of linear streaming that will include a ton of Rooster Teeth and Let’s Play shows, including the new animated series Nomad of Nowhere. Oh, linear streaming means it’s like old school TV. You just watch and wait to see what’s on next. Anyway, we’ll have a bunch of your favorite Rooster Teeth cast members joining the chat throughout the day, so be sure to check it out!
Have a great weekend!
