The dropping of the ball on Times Square is a tradition that goes back more than a 100 years, and every year, millions of people from all around the world turn in to watch it live. Of course it’s on TV, but you can also tune in without cable, or without a TV at all, for that matter. Here’s where you can watch the Time Square New Year’s party live online, on your phone and on Roku boxes:

The official webcast of the part is starting at 5:55pm ET, and lasting more than six hours, until 12:15am ET, to be precise. The commercial-free webcast will once again be hosted by Allison Hagendorf.

Official iPhone and Android apps make it possible to also watch all the action on the go.

Roku owners can watch the action live through the Livestream channel on their device.

Twitter’s Vine team will be sharing the best Vines from Times Square through its app via “Times Square NYE” and on Twitter @NYE2014Vine.

EarthCam is once again streaming the New Year’s celebration on Times Square as well. The site’s stream is starting at 10pm ET, and available through its website as well as its iPhone and iPad app.
