Yesterday we took a look at how Kodak is welcoming in the new year using their video wall in Times Square. If you aren’t planning on going out into the snow tonight or are located in another city, you can still watch the ball drop to 2010 tonight in Times Square.
Hulu and Livestream have you covered with New Year’s related content from around the U.S. Hulu notes, “from approximately 10 p.m. EST to 12:15 a.m. EST, we’ll be hosting a live stream direct from Times Square as the crowd counts down to the ball drop at midnight.” It looks like Hulu will provide the same coverage they did for the welcome to 2009.
Livestream will show a variety of programming beginning at 6pm Eastern tonight from around the country. They note that you can even watch the “littlest ball drop” which is located in Aggieville, Kansas. Livestream’s coverage is also available on the iPhone.
How will you ring in 2010? Leave your geeky or non-geeky suggestions in the comments.
Can’t make it to Times Square this year for the New Year’s Eve bash? Don’t want to go out in what looks to be a freezing cold, blustery night? Would you rather ring in the new year on Friendfeed or Twitter? I’ve got two words for you: Mogulus and Hulu.
NY-based online video streaming provider Mogulus has setup a New Year’s Eve Times Square channel which will be live from 4pm ET tonight. They have partnered with some of the Gannett properties which will run the feed on their newspaper websites as well.
Hulu will run a live channel from Times Square beginning at 10pm ET. Hulu notes that their coverage, “will include views of Times Square and the crystal ball, plus the ambient sounds of the party as NYC winds up to count down to 2009.”
UPDATE: Check out 2010 New Year’s eve video options
Happy New Year to all of the awesome CN readers. Please be safe! 2009 looks to be a very exciting year!
NY-based Mogulus has announced the launch today of it’s new live streaming platform that enables anyone with a computer, a web-cam and a high speed connection to broadcast like a multi-million dollar television station. The announcement was made at the NewTeeVee event in San Francisco.
They are also streaming the NTV event live so you can watch it from anywhere. From what I have seen, this is the closest thing to an individual being able to create a real, live, actual TV station with badges, tickers, etc. And you can chat with your audience at the same time.
Mogulus also unveiled its Mogulus Grid at the NewTeeVee event. The Mogulus Grid allows you to watch 26 Mogulus Live channels and chat with all of the other viewers. You can also search and browse for channels using the program guide if the top 26 channel selections are not what you want.
I guess this is some competition for Ustream though Mogulus appears to be much larger in name recognition here in NYC.

Verticlans.com – Personalized Craigslist
