It’s finally almost time to ring in the new year, and after the way 2020 has gone, who isn’t looking forward to a fresh start? Even though crowds aren’t able to gather this year for the most famous New Year’s Eve celebration of all — the Times Square ball drop — there are still ways to watch the festivities, whether you want to watch on TV, your laptop, your phone, or whatever is most comfortable.

Regardless of how you want to watch, TV Guide has you covered. While there are many networks that are hosting New Year’s Eve celebrations, the following programs are being hosted from Times Square and will feature the iconic ball drop at midnight ET on Friday, Jan. 1. Check out how to watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Years Eve, wherever you are.

The Livestream (no cable required) 

If you’re without cable and want a no-fuss way to watch the ball drop, you can watch the livestream on NewYorkTimesSquare.org. There are no commercials, and you get backstage access, behind-the-scenes stories, and interviews with performers and other celebrities leading up to the ball drop at midnight ET.

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (ABC)

Ryan Seacrest will host Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve for the 16th year in a row. The festivities kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 31, and Seacrest will be jointed in Times Square by Billy Porter and Lucy Hale, with Ciara hosting the celebration in Los Angeles. Jennifer Lopez will be the headlining musical performer, hitting the stage just before the ball drops. Porter will also perform a duet with Cyndi Lauper, who wrote the music for Kinky Boots — the musical that won Porter a Lead Actor in a Musical Tony in 2013.

To watch, tune in to ABC or ABC.com or watch on the ABC App. The celebration will also be available on demand on Hulu starting on Jan. 1.
