Eastercon streaming this weekend

By Petrea Mitchell| April 6, 2012 | 1 Comment

Those of us unable to make it to a con in person this weekend can still get a bit of a convention fix, it appears, courtesy of this channel on Ustream. Eastercon will be streaming all programming from its largest function room, including the British Science Fiction Association Awards, and readings from GoHs George R. R. Martin and Cory Doctorow.

Program information is available in various formats here. The stream will cover everything in the Commonwealth Room. Note that times are in British Summer Time (1 hour ahead of GMT, 5 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time, 8 hours ahead of Pacific Daylight Time).

This does not appear to include the Hugo nominees announcement, which will take place in a different room. We are still waiting for word on whether any of the conventions hosting the announcement will be streaming it.

    For details of the Hugo Awards Announcement live streaming, including the individual streams at the five conventions, see the Hugo Awards website. This information is also currently on the front page of the Chicon 7 web site, but not as a separate announcement.
