FAQ: Changing your Sponsorship to Auto-RenewWe just posted an announcement about upcoming changes to our Sponsorship model, so read it! It has important info-- including the fact that if you sign up for auto-renew before May 5th, you get locked in at the current $10 every 6 months rate.

The biggest question we've received is how do you change your current sponsorship to auto-renew (for example, if it's a gift, or just one 6-month installment)

Here's the answer!

When we increase the price on May 5th, we will take a snapshot of all non-recurring sponsorships in our system. When those users' sponsorship expires, we will be sending them an email (and probably a website message) with the opportunity to grandfather their accounts at the reduced $10/6 months rate.

In simpler terms, if you're a sponsor now (regardless of it being auto-renew or not) you'll get a chance to select auto-renew at the $10 rate when your sponsorship expires (even if it's after May 5th).

Hope that has cleared up any confusion! Thanks for your patience.

Changes to SponsorshipRooster Teeth implemented Sponsorship, our premium member model, almost 11 years ago. It has evolved a lot over the years as we've added new content and new features. Today we're announcing a few changes, including a new benefit that we hope all our sponsors will love.

Starting May 5th, Sponsors will receive a 5% discount on everything in the RT Store! That's right, if you're a Sponsor, everything in our store is always on sale for you. T-shirts, toys, DVDs and all the rest. And, that's not the only planned store perk. In the coming weeks, we will begin releasing some Sponsor-only merchandise as well!

As you've probably noticed, we've also ramped up our production of Sponsor video content quite a bit in recent months. We're now releasing new Sponsor content every Friday, with more great surprises to come in the near future. We've gotten some great feedback, and we want to hear more from you about what you'd like to see in the RT Sponsor Cut every week.

There are currently two ways to become a Sponsor: you can purchase an automatically renewing 6-month Sponsorship subscription on our website, or you can buy a single non-recurring 6-month Sponsorship in our online store. On May 5th, we will be changing the price for that 6-month period to $15, and adding other Sponsorship purchase options in our online store as follows:

3 Months for $9 ($3/month)
6 Months for $15 ($2.50/month)
1 Year for $25 ($2.08/month)
3 Years for $60 ($1.67/month)

If you currently have an automatically renewing Sponsorship, do not worry, your price will not change. You can keep your current subscription at your existing rate for as long as you want. And, if you don't currently have a subscription and want to sign up now at the lower rate before the price change, you are welcome to do that here. You have until May 5th, so don't delay.

We can’t say it enough how much we love and appreciate every single one of our fans. We know a lot of you look at sponsorship as another way of supporting us, and we want you to know how much that means to us. As we continue to grow, we want to offer you even more reasons to become a Sponsor. Here are all the great features and perks that come with Sponsorship today:

NEW Perks!
- 5% discount in the RT Store. Always. For every order.
- Special Sponsor-only products in the RT Store
- New Sponsor-only videos every Friday
- More upcoming live-streamed events and shows
- Early video releases, so you can watch new shows before anyone else
- Exclusive bonus content and behind-the-scenes videos
- Extended cuts of video releases
- No pre-roll ads on videos
- Live-streamed Podcasts
- Sponsor-only forum
- Shiny star next to your name
- Exclusive site features, such as emoticons and colored text
- Access to your site stats
- Our eternal love and gratitude

Remember, you have from now until May 5th to get locked in at current rates before the price change. To sign up for recurring Sponsorship, go here!

Have any questions? Ask in the comments, and we’ll do our best to address it.

Thank you for your support! We can’t wait to get all these new features rolled out for you.

As a bonus for today's Sponsorship announcement, we've released not one, but THREE sponsor-only videos!
- RvB Season 12 Journal featuring Caboose
- Moving Day video and Immersion BTS
- Cards Against Humanity Live Stream recording

Yes, today, April 1st 2014, is Rooster Teeth's 11-year Anniversary. That means we're officially a pre-teen. Soon we'll start becoming really moody and growing hair in places we didn't have hair before. You know how much we love our anniversary, so we wanted to do a few special things for our favorite people in the world- you guys! Get ready for lots of big news!

First, we are having an 11% OFF sale for 11 days starting NOW! Just head over to the RT Store, and use code "RT11YEARS" at checkout! Grab that shirt you've been eyeing for months, or one of our new products just released, including the RWBY Volume 2 poster, the Fake AH Crew Poster, RvB Playing Cards, new decals, or today's new Immersion Season 2 shirt!

Wait, Immersion Season 2?

That's right- as part of our Anniversary Celebration, we've released a new episode of Immersion Season 2! We test what it would be like to have split-screen vision in combat. Hilarity ensues. New episodes of Immersion will come out every 2 weeks on

Speaking of releases, RWBY Volume 2 is chugging along, and this Thursday, we'll have an all-new Production Diary! Dive further into the world of RWBY as the crew explores more of the artwork behind the show. And in case you missed it, the first Production Diary came out last month-give it a watch! Remember, the premiere of Volume 2 will be at RTX 2014, which is just over 90 days away! Do YOU have tickets yet?

Achievement Hunter has been kicking ass as usual, and if you aren't caught up, you're missing out- some of our recent favorites include GTA V Heist, Achievement Knievel, and Minecraft Monopoly. Not only that, they're approaching Let's Play Minecraft Episode 100, and we can't wait to see what they have in store. Not getting enough AH in your life? You can also catch them every now and then in our new Sponsor Cut, either doing a live Game Night or other events.

And lastly, we're only a few weeks away from the premiere of RvB Season 12! To get your body, mind, and soul ready for the awesomeness that is approaching, we just released a teaser trailer! Make sure to join us for the premiere on April 28th, 5 PM CT for Sponsors, and 7 PM CT for the public.

It has been another crazy, exciting, and amazing year for RT and we can never thank you enough for supporting us. Stay tuned for even more changes and new projects coming your way! WE LOVE YOU!

Hugs and kisses all over your face <3
