How to stream New Year’s Eve celebrations from home

If you’re celebrating the end of 2017 from home but you don’t have cable, you can still join in on the festivities from your computer or phone.

There are plenty of shows this year, including “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” “New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey” and special New Year’s Eve-themed talk shows from Carson Daly and Seth Meyers.

So, don’t miss out — tune in to these streams.

Free options: 

The Times Square Alliance will provide a free livestream from the heart of it all starting at 5 p.m. While you probably won’t see full performances, the video will focus on behind-the-scenes access, including interviews with celebrity attendees, performers and revelers. You can watch at timessquarenyc.org, on Facebook or Twitter

If you want to feel like you’re in Times Square without the hassle, check out Earth Cam’s livestream on its website or app. You’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the Times Square stage and see spectators brave the cold. The video includes the ball drop. 

Fox News Channel is teaming up with Mandt Media to offer a 360-degree experience that will capture Times Square’s celebration from four different points of view, including behind-the-scenes activities. You can catch it on Fox’s website, its Facebook page or its Youtube channel.
