ReedPOP has inked a live streaming pact with SYFY WIRE that will see the NBCU-owned property become the exclusive live stream partner for three of ReedPOP’s biggest fandom shows: Emerald City Comic Con, Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) and New York Comic Con.
Under the deal, SYFY WIRE will host the Live Stages on the main floor at each of the three shows. Correspondents will conduct interviews with celebrities and creators, provide previews of exclusive merchandise and upcoming films and series.
Fans can view the livestream from SYFY WIRE’s website, its YouTube channel, and its social media platforms. In addition, select SYFY WIRE coverage will also be featured on television via the SYFYchannel.
“We have fans all around the globe that cannot join us in Seattle, Chicago or New York for these three amazing shows,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Head of ReedPOP. “As the premier portal for genre news, editorial and discussion, we can’t think of a better partner than SYFY WIRE to bring this exclusive content to superfans of all kinds.”
Emerald City Comic Con will take place March 1-4 at the WA State Convention Center in Seattle. Confirmed guests include: Christopher Lloyd, Felicia Day, Ivy Doomkitty, and Shannon Purser. The ninth edition of C2E2 follows Emerald City and runs from April 6-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Justin Hartley and Milo Ventimiglia from “This is Us” are the most recent guests announced. They will join previously revealed guests, including Dave Bautista, Mark Sheppard, Alan Tudyk and Lennie James.
