Live coverage of the Times Square 2006 festivities will be provided by an eight-camera mixed feed with exclusive panoramic views of Times Square. The cameras will also provide coverage of the New Year’s Eve Ball from proprietary camera locations on rooftops and on the street will be presented to a global Internet audience by Wi-Fi TV Inc.

Wi-Fi TV will provide live and uninterrupted coverage to provide Internet viewers with the sights, sounds and ambience of being live in Times Square to ring in the New Year at

Wi-Fi TV will kick off its extensive coverage of New Year’s Eve in New York on Thursday, December 29 with the arrival and installation of the “2006” sign at the top of One Times Square; the rigging of the 77-foot pole from which the Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball descends; the assembly and testing of the crystal New Year’s Eve Ball; and other preparations for the festivities.

Live coverage on New Year’s Eve, Saturday, December 31, will be continuous and extensive.

Wi-Fi TV was invited to participate in the delivery of the New York New Year’s Eve experience to its viewers by the non-profit Times Square Alliance, whose mission is to promote travel and tourism in New York City.


“The Times Square Alliance felt Wi-Fi TV could use this exciting and internationally famed event to promote our Wi-Fi TV service, to drive traffic, attract new users, and new business opportunities,” stated Shelley Dietrich, a Wi-Fi TV spokesperson.

A complete schedule of live events (which will also be archived online for future viewing) will be posted at in the next few days.
