Zenkaikon Online is the online component of Zenkaikon 2022. As a hybrid convention, we are offering live streaming content in addition to our in-person panels.
Who can get access to the streaming content?
Zenkaikon Online streaming content is available to both in-person Zenkaikon members and anyone who is not attending the convention. Access is available here.
How much will this cost?
Online access costs $15 and lasts for the entire year.
I have an in-person Zenkaikon membership. Do I have automatic online access also?
Your in-person membership does not come with online access. However, you have the ability to easily add-on access through our link here and throughout the Lancaster Marriott by scanning the QR codes on our signage.
I have a VIP Zenkaikon membership. Do I have automatic online access also?
Your VIP Zenkaikon membership does not include online access. As with the in-person membership, however, you have the ability to easily add it.
What kind of content will I be able to watch?
We will be featuring both online-only and in-person panels and events from Zenkaikon 2022, along with all panels from Zenkaikon 2021, and general con ambience background videos.
Why are some panels not available on Zenkaikon Online?
This is our first year as a hybrid convention. We want to both gauge how much interest is in our online content and get the experience necessary to stream live content from our Lancaster hotel. If this proves popular enough, we are open to expanding our online coverage.
What rooms at Zenkaikon 2022 are being streamed out?
Zenkaikon Online will be streaming content out of our Main Events room, as well as two of our largest panel rooms.
When will Zenkaikon Online go live?
We will be online starting early on the Friday of the convention, March 25, 2022. We expect the schedule to be out at least a week before the convention, so please keep your eyes and ears open for when we release our schedule!
Do I get access to anything after Zenkaikon 2022?
Once your online access is active, you gain access to all recordings all year long from Zenkaikon 2022 and Zenkaikon 2021, along with a curated collection of content from past conventions.
Can I watch Zenkaikon Online through my Roku/Chromecast/Fire TV/etc?
At this time, all Zenkaikon Online content is only available through our partners at UScreen. However, all web browsers work with UScreen, so you can access our content with any device that has a web browser.
Is there a chat function? How do I chat with others while watching the streams?
