You’ll recall that during San Diego Comic Con this year, there was something of a crisis concerning long line-ups and people having to wait well into the wee hours of the morning to just get the wrist bands that would allow you to access the panels taking place the next day. Why bother? The panels in Hall H is where the news is made, people, and everyone wants to be there to get news first. So why not just put the panels online, and live-stream them so that the people who just want the news can watch it somewhere more comfortable and convenient. Well, the team at New York Comic-Con thinks that’s a good idea.
New York Comic-Con has announced that many of the major panels, not all, will be broadcast in a live-stream over the internet. You’ll be able to access the stream by accessing either the NYCC website, the Twitch website, or by downloading the Twitch app on your iPad or iPhone.
So what panels will you be able to check out? How about the Back to the Future, AMC’s upcoming Into the Badlands, and a celebration of all things Warner Bros. TV including Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow, Blindspot, Supergirl and Person of Interest. There will also be live streams for Teen Wolf, Amazon’s Man in the High Castle and The X-Files. Sadly though, Marvel’s TV panel on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jessica Jones, and Agent Carter will not be available.
Unfortunately, tickets to NYCC are all sold out, so if you have any interest at all, live streaming is the way to go. New York Comic-Con gets underway tomorrow and runs through to Sunday at the Javits Center. Stay tuned….
