Free satellite feeds offered for Times Square celebration


The Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment will once again offer free satellite feeds of the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square, New York.  The feeds will be made available free of charge to domestic and international television outlets, in addition to mobile phone TV providers, IPTV, vlogs and user generated content sites.

The feeds will feature complete coverage of the festivities – including exclusive panoramic views of Times Square and the new giant Crystal New Year’s Eve Ball from proprietary locations on rooftops and the street; ambient and natural sounds of the revelers; and the traditional ball lowering at midnight EST.

In addition to live New Year’s Eve feeds, a B-Roll package feed today will feature a special behind-the-scenes look at the making of Times Square New Year’s Eve, featuring the arrival and installation of the "2009" sign at the top of One Times Square; the assembly and testing of the new giant Crystal New Year’s Eve Ball; and other preparations for the festivities.

These clean, uninterrupted feeds will be provided free of charge to cable operators and networks on a non-exclusive basis solely for use in creating television programming relating to the event.
