Happy Holidays, everyone. I hope your year has been a great one and that this last month of 2018 treats you well. This year Matt is giving us almost the entire afternoon off for Christmas, so we’re pretty excited! I’m coming to you today with some sad news that was pretty difficult to write.
The RT Box is ending.
Yes, you read that right. The Season 3 Box, the RT Holiday box that many of you are already enjoying, will be the last one. It has been a crazy ride from when we originally launched Double Gold in July 2016, to when we changed plans and created the current RT Box this April, and till now. We’ve seen some ups and downs, but I’m proud that the team was able to make some of the coolest stuff ever for these exclusive boxes, and we’ve had a blast. At Rooster Teeth we like to try new things that we think our community will enjoy. We took a couple of shots at this and it just hasn’t quite worked out. I want to thank everyone who subscribed or even just tried out one or two boxes. You chose to support us when you could have done otherwise, and we appreciate that more than you know.
What does this mean for you?
I know a lot of you value one RT Box perk in particular - the ability to get first crack at Rooster Teeth live event tickets. If you’re a current subscriber, we’re going to let you keep that perk for 2019. As long as you are a paying RT Box member any time in Season 3 (between October 1 and December 31) you will be eligible to receive the following perks from January 1 to December 31, 2019.

Early access to purchase tickets for live events
We will be removing the 10% off discount in the RT Store starting January 1, 2019, for current RT Box members.
Anyone who is currently an RT Box member, expecting to be charged for the Season 4 box - you won’t be charged in the new year. Your recurring payments will stop on January 1 and no further charges will happen.
If you have not purchased the RT Holiday Box, you still have time if you want it. You have until December 31 at 11:59 p.m. CT or until we run out of inventory.
Thanks for being awesome. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me or @Chelsea if you have any questions.
