#ValiantSummit Live Broadcast By Twitch TV, Updating As We Go…



Valiant's upcoming Valiant Summit 2016 live event – to be broadcast from New York's renowned Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre on Tuesday at 2 pm ET – is now being broadcast live on Twitch,.tv making it the first major comics event to receive live coverage on the world's largest live-video network for gamers.

The stream will be hosted here by HyperRPG:

With several creators traveling to New York to appear, Valiant has promised major news and announcements for the event, including first word on several of their Free Comic Book Day-teased projects, including Harbinger, Shadowman, Britannia, Savage, Bloodshot War, and more.

But that might not be the only big news that event produces.

With a viewership of more than 100 million, Twitch's cumulative reach will give Valiant's second annual live-streaming media event a bigger potential audience than DC's recent YouTube Rebirth press conference, the most recent Image Expo or Marvel's Secret Wars kick-off event from Midtown Comics.

Last year, Valiant set the bar high by becoming the first comics publisher to be invited to broadcast live from Twitter headquarters on the then-new Periscope app. Might this be a new record waiting to be broken?

Find out for yourself with the 2016 Valiant Summit begins at 2 pm ET. Watch via Twitch or the Periscope app via the @ValiantComics account.
