Ahhh… the sun, the sand, the crazy amount of cosplay, and 3 days of back-to-back panels with the industry’s biggest names. This could only mean one thing – San Diego Comic-Con is finally here. Well… sort of. While things might look a bit different this year and I may still be at home with my cat instead of sunny San Diego, I’m excited to get a crowd-friendly virtual look at one of the country’s biggest comic book, sci-fi and cultural events, all from the comfort of my own home.

In this new pandemic world, pretty much every in-person experience has been impacted in some way and though not ideal, it’s exciting to have the opportunity to not only see every Comic-Con panel at home but also at a price we all love – free.

Starting on Wednesday, July 22, you’ll have the chance to see over 300+ interviews and panels with your favorite creators, actors, and industry pros. The biggest upside: you’ll be able to actually see ALL the panels you’d like to see without running 10 miles around SDCC (or deciding whether you needed a hot dog or a good spot for the Riverdale panel). Ready to jump in? Here’s how to watch:

  1. Install and keep the YouTube streaming channel readily accessible on your TCL TV. Mine is next to my most frequently used apps so I don’t have to search for it through all my other apps on my 6-Series.

  2. Check out the Comic-Con schedule and mark down all the livestreams you want to watch.

  3. Make sure to subscribe to Comic-Con’s YouTube on your phone, so even if you’re away from your TV or lose track of time, you’ll get a notification that Comic-Con is going live with another panel.

That’s it! Grab some snacks, a seat, and sit back & relax for 3 straight days of Comic-Con fun.
