RVT (formerly Reviewtopia) is a review website similar in style to Channel Awesome—in fact, a few of the contributors were later recruited by and featured on both sites. Reviewed topics are Film, Live-Action TV, Video Games, Anime, Tokusatsu, Professional Wrestling, Music and Comics. There is also a live-stream called RVTV. The site has since changed its name and is shifting focus from exclusively reviewing to also include original content.

Also like Channel Awesome and ScrewAttack, members of the community are invited to post their own reviews and original content. Some reviewers just use it as a video dumping ground while other reviewers and community contributors ZeltraxMillenium are regular members of the community and even help the site's runners with their own shows and join their podcasts.

In early 2013, about two-thirds of the site's contributors left following a controversial incident: during a live-stream of a Sinner Radio episode at MAGFest there was a combination of nudity and several lewd and exploitative comments made by Enigma, who was operating the site's Twitter at the time (which were later deleted). The result was a mass exodus of members, Enigma's firing, and temporary suspension of live-streaming.

RVT Entertainment no longer has a web site, but are active on social media. RVT's Twitter account can still be accessed here, where they still post links to their contributor's videos and scheduled stream announcements. Their facebook is also still active, though it is updated far less frequently.

During the downtime, EZ Rider has opened his own site for his own shows and podcasts,, with other content creators being featured on the "Toku Minutemen" section of his site.
