Zenkaikon Online is the online component of Zenkaikon. 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: Zenkaikon Online Site
How much will this cost?
Online access costs $15 and lasts for the entire year.
I have a standard in-person Zenkaikon membership. Do I have automatic online access also?
Your standard in-person membership comes with a special "Introductory Access Bundle" showcasing some of our most popular videos from the previous year. While full online access is not included, you have the ability to easily add-on access through our link here: Zenkaikon Online Site, on our In Person Registration page and throughout the Lancaster Marriott by scanning the QR codes on our signage.
I have a VIP/Platinum Zenkaikon membership. Do I have automatic online access also?
Your VIP/Platinum Zenkaikon membership does include online access for one year.
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, along with all panels from Zenkaikon 2021 and 2022, 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 with our membership, we are open to expanding our online coverage.
What rooms at Zenkaikon 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 (live streaming) starting early on the Friday of the convention, March 24, 2023. 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 2023?
Once your online access is active, you gain access to all recordings all year long from Zenkaikon 2023 and Zenkaikon 2021-2022, 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?
