Here's the announcement in full.

"Bidet, Critters!

We have a few important updates to share with you regarding Critical Role and Talks Machina. After a long and successful run with Geek & Sundry and Legendary Digital Networks, moving forward, new episodes of Critical Role and Talks Machina will air on Critical Role channels. We are parting as friends and want to thank Geek & Sundry and Legendary Digital Networks for helping us build this amazing audience, and we wish them the best. They have been supportive and collaborative partners, and we are grateful they shared their platforms and a love of role-playing games with us. And while this portion of the journey may be coming to an end, we’ll be cheering for one another. Check out the below for more specifics on where and how to watch.

Without further ado, here’s where you can expect to watch our shows moving forward.

CRITICAL ROLE
Starting Thursday, February 21st, Critical Role will air at 7pm Pacific at twitch.tv/criticalrole. VOD will be available for Critical Role Twitch channel subscribers over the weekend and will be available on the Critical Role YouTube channel at 12pm Pacific on Mondays.

Please note that new Critical Role VODs will be available only on Critical Role channels.

All legacy episodes of Critical Role (the entirety of Campaign 1: Vox Machina and episodes 1 through 51 of Campaign 2: Mighty Nein) will be available via Geek & Sundry’s channels. All new episodes will be available on the Critical Role YouTube channel moving forward. We have created handy YouTube playlists (Vox Machina link || Mighty Nein link) for you so that it’s super easy to find each of our episodes, and the video links have been posted here on critrole.com with viewing opportunities on at least one free-to-view platform. You can also continue to watch new Critical Role and Talks Machina episodes live on Geek & Sundry’s Twitch channel, if that’s where you’re subscribed.

Starting with Campaign 2 Episode 52, the Critical Role podcast will be available through the Critical Role podcast network. The entirety of Campaign 1 and the first 51 episodes of Campaign 2 will remain on the Geek & Sundry podcast network. This means that you will need to subscribe to the new Critical Role podcast feed if you’d like to keep up-to-date with the podcast version of the show.


TALKS MACHINA
Starting Tuesday, February 19 (Episode 100), Talks Machina will air at 7pm Pacific at twitch.tv/criticalrole. Episode 100 will also be available live on Alpha. The VOD for Episode 100 will be available to Geek & Sundry Twitch and Alpha subscribers.

Starting with Episode 101 (2/26/2019), Talks Machina VOD will be available for Critical Role Twitch channel subscribers immediately and will be available on the Critical Role YouTube channel at 12pm Pacific on Thursdays.

In addition to the YouTube upload, Talks Machina (starting with Episode 101) will also be available moving forward in podcast format through the Critical Role podcast network on a one-week delay.

Please note that new Talks Machina VODs (starting with Episode 101) will be available only on Critical Role channels.

Thank you so much for your support, and we love and appreciate each and every one of you!"

Didn't they do a few other tabletop RPG streams? There's one for Vampire, there's the Modiphius Star Trek one (which I need to get caught up on as well), there's the Deborah Ann Woll D&D show coming up, and there was/is a wrestling RPG one too, I think?

I don't know a lot about the Vampire one, but my daughter likes it a lot. The Star Trek one was quite good IMO, but ended some time last year (prior to GenCon). The same group from Star Trek is now doing a superhero/cyberpunk setting using the Cypher System and it has been quite good as well (I'm only up to number four of season one though).

The first episode of Deborah Ann Woll's show (Relics and Rarities) is VOD for G&S Twitch subscribers, but the following episodes are not (I think they've had three or four episodes at this point). You have to have an Alpha (or maybe VRV) subscription to see episodes beyond #1 as far as I know. I have to say I loved the first episode a lot.

I’d love to thank the Twitch subber who gifted me a one month subscription Tuesday, but there doesn’t seem to be a method on Twitch to send a private message — that was awesome of them! They have a pretty good community over there at crit role, generally speaking.

However, even despite Relics & Rarities, I predict some tougher times ahead for G&S now... I know I have nothing to keep subbed at G&S, myself.

Yeah, making Relics Rarities Alpha not GnS twitch is further making me reconsider my GnS follow/subscribe. Their current line-up has little appeal to me.

I just switched my Prime subscription over to Critical Role. I'm thinking about getting a VRV subscription, as that has Alpha, G&S, and a ton of other stuff included with it. We'll see.
