Bring-on 2021 with Live EarthCam Streams of New Year's Eve

Enjoy a Virtual Front-Row Seat for Worldwide Celebrations

December 30, 2020 -- This year, New Year’s Eve celebrations around the world promise to be unlike any other year. Join webcam experts, EarthCam for their 25th annual New Year’s Eve webcast on December 31 at 10:00 am EST. See how the celebrations have been transformed this year, beginning in New Zealand and followed by fireworks and other festivities from more than 50 locations. International highlights include Thailand, Dubai, Mauritius, Budapest, London and Dublin’s Temple Bar.

EarthCam will host four fascinating channels on New Year’s Eve. One revealing featured and trending webcams from around the world – and from out of this world – with a New Year’s message from the crew aboard the International Space Station at 5:30pm ET. Another channel will showcase New Year’s celebrations as they unfold in each time-zone, and two more will focus on Times Square performances from multiple perspectives.

Times Square celebrations in New York City will still be in full swing – but without spectators. Viewers will have the best vantage point via EarthCam’s network of live broadcast-quality streaming video cameras. Real-time, high-resolution panoramas will present a VIP balcony perspective.

Celebrations will continue across the US from the East Coast to Hawaii, and streams will be featured from Chicago, Kansas City, Dallas, Bourbon St. New Orleans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and culminating in Waikoloa.

This year people are being encouraged to join festivities virtually – and EarthCam’s leading webcam technology will provide many new options to bring these global events to millions of screens in real-time. EarthCam is also partnering with Jamestown, the company known for creating some of the world’s most iconic gathering places including One Times Square, home to the New Year's Eve Ball Drop Celebration. EarthCam is providing live webcam content for Jamestown’s NYE App, which creates a gamified New Year's Eve experience to bring the look and feel of iconic celebrations from Times Square, and celebrating the best of music, technology, art and innovation.
