WTTV is the offical "television station" for WTT. Predominately used for movie nights, WTTV has become a staple in WTT culture and its creation marked the recovery from The Great 2017 Slump.

History

As part of the early 2018 efforts to revitalize WTT, Peaches floated the idea of a weekly movie night as a means to unify the community. IDeas were brainstormed on how to go about it, with Rabbit and Ustream being floated as options, along with Cytube and Vaughnlive. Taylor came up with an overly ambitious idea to have it run 24/7 with news and random shows in the time between scheduled movie nights, however this would prove eventually to be largly unfeasible, at least at the time. Rejdukien eventually would set up a Cytube and on March 3rd 2018, the first Saturday movie night was scheduled with a viewing of the 1974 Blaxploitation film Boss Nigger.

On April 4th, Wednesdays were designated as the anime movie night, with an airing of Jin-Roh. A few days later, on the 8th, WTTV would have its first live event with a stream of Wrestlemania via Ustream which peaked at 800~ viewers.

July 2018 Defacement

After the Incel Uprising, in a move of pettiness, Rej, as the creator of the Cytube, would deface it with Goatse and a butthurt message about Taylor bullying him. The channel was moved from r/WTT to r/WTTB with very little incident. The original remains up as a reminder to their stupidity and high school level antics.

Content Overhaul

With the begging of BMW 3.0, movie night was expanded from just Saturdays to Fridays and Saturdays, with comedy and drama movies respectively being the fare. Anime Wednesdays were continued, as well as the first Friday of every month being a Bad Movie Night, airing such classics as Freddie Got Fingered. Towards the end of the year however, movie night was moved back to just one night to avoid interfering with Game Nights.

Also, more live content was introduced with streams of football, wrestling, and LivePD via VaughnLive.

Theme Months

In 2019, the scheduling of movies was moved to more of a theme (ie Die Hard January, Blaxploitation February, etc.).

2019 Slump & Revival

After Taylors Abdication, Movie Night as well as game night temporarily fell to the wayside as new management took over. However, in the beginning of June, Alex reintroduced calendars and movie night was reborn, along with the return of WEIRD WEDNESDAYS and the post movie late night Toonami viewing, WTTV was back in full swing.

The start of football season took movie night and anime night into hiatus again, but as of October, initial plans were put into place to bring it back, potentially via Discord live streaming.
