Film Society of Little Rock Executive Director Tony Taylor said, “We are beyond thrilled, and grateful, to have COMET as the Presenting Sponsoring of Fantastic Cinema & Craft Beer Festival. We love their programming which features sci-fi, fantasy, action-adventure, horror, and fan-favorites. In addition, one of the best parts is being able to partner with somebody who has a local connection, with Sinclair Broadcast Group owning KATV Channel 7.

The network premiered in over 60% of the country and over 65 million homes on October 31, 2015. 

Central Arkansas residents can watch COMET on KATV Channel 7.2. The network is also available in top markets including New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL; Philadelphia, PA; Seattle, WA; Denver, CO; St. Louis, MO; San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA; Washington D.C.; Boston, MA; Pittsburgh, PA and Houston, TX.
