How do I enjoy a riff?

RiffTrax come in two main types: videos that are the movie and commentary combined for a streamlined viewing experience, and audio MP3 files that you play along with your copy of the movie that you must provide.

The pre-packaged riffs ("Stream or Download", also known as VODs) are cheesy movies that we have combined with our commentary, which you can download or stream on almost any video-playing device, including tablets, PS3s, Roku 3, Wii U, and more! We also sell riffed versions of educational short films, like the ones you were forced to watch in grade school.

The audio-only "Just the Jokes" riff commentaries are audio MP3 tracks ONLY! This is because, unlike many B-movies that are public domain, we're prevented by law from selling you a movie like "Twilight" or "Star Trek." To get around this limitation, you must provide the movie (either on DVD, an iTunes download, and even some Netflix streams) and then play the MP3 file along with it. Voila! Instant MST3K-like commentary for modern blockbusters. For more information on how to watch the audio commentaries with your movie, visit this Helpdesk article

We also do live shows! Every now and then, the guys will perform their commentary in front of a live audience, and that show is beamed to theaters across the country!

And finally, you can find a selection of our titles, including the live shows, on Blu-ray and DVD.
