Have you always wanted to attend a comic convention, but have been unable to get badges or tickets?? Big changes are happening in the world of fandoms! No longer do you need a badge (or cable) to access exclusive content about your favorite programming. On March 3rd, Wizard World and Cinedigm launched a brand new web platform, CONtv.com, which boasts over 2,500 fan-centric films, TV episodes, convention panels, and much more! Think of it as a kind of Netflix for comic and fandom enthusiasts alike! https://twitter.com/contvchannel/status/572856473979518977 Follow @contvchannel on Twitter to keep up on the latest site updates! This multi-platform digital streaming network is now available on iOS, Android, and the web, which gives viewers global access to fan-centric programming and personalized content. Signing up for an account on the site is free, but there is a VIP option for subscription packages to provide ad-free experiences. An app for CONtv is available now as well, so that your fandom content can travel with you on-the-go. CONtv.com will also be an amazing source to learn about programming for Wizard World conventions and to view panels from previous events featuring your favorite panel stars!
In addition to a huge offering of over 2,500 fan-centric, curated films and TV episodes, CONtv offers all-access to pop culture conventions nationwide anytime, anywhere, showcasing exclusive events, panels and talent from Comic Cons, including:
  • Ongoing event coverage with exclusive series “Live @ the Con,” and “All Access Pass,” allowing fans to get up close to the action with celebrity panels featuring industry icons like William Shatner (“Star Trek”), Michael Rooker (“The Walking Dead”), and Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), one-on-one spotlights with pop culture heroes like Lou Ferrigno (“The Incredible Hulk”) and Manu Bennett (“Arrow”), artist and creator workshops with top-notch professionals like Joel Adams (“King of the Hill”) and Tom Hodges (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), and expert Q&A’s with fan favorite talent like Sara Underwood (“Attack of the Show!”).
  • After-hour fan events like the “Drink & Draw” where professional and amateur creators go head-to-head in drawing and writing competitions and “Cosplay LIVE,” where local and National Cosplayers compete for the best cosplay of the con. Planning a trip to the next con? “CON City,” dives into local culture with nightlife, geek culture, and unique offerings that makes each Comic Con distinct.
  • CONtv also boasts an expansive portfolio of acquired film and television content spanning cult television, sci-fi, horror and fantasy films, grindhouse classics, thrilling martial arts adventures, and much more.
CONtv plans on releasing new programming weekly, and also offers a "dynamic, interactive initiative bred from within the Comic Con fanspace". Essentially, the users will control the added content to the site, as new posts and content is uploaded based on viewer preferences and site traffic data. "The programming will evolve to meet viewer demands and the service will continue to grow as viewership data sheds light on fan preferences." How awesome is that!?! Even though it has only been live for a short period of time, CONtv has BIG plans for the coming weeks to kick-off the site launch.
  • On March 9th, fans will find full vindication for their hours of binge viewing with host and horror icon Bruce Campbell’s new pop-culture trivia game show “Last Fan Standing.” New episodes will release Mondays throughout the spring.
  • On March 22nd, all 11 episodes of  “Fight of the Living Dead”, the highly anticipated, genre-bending horror/reality series that follows top YouTube celebrities as they struggle to “survive” in a simulated zombie apocalypse, will release exclusively on CONtv.
  • The explosive action continues into April with “My Morphing Life,” the pulse-pounding series that centers on the insane real-life adventures of original Green Power Ranger, Jason David Frank.
