Last year, Telstra had a drone in the skies providing a 360-degree view of the fireworks, as iTWire reported on here.
In 2015, Telstra is yet again the ‘proud partner of Sydney New Year’s Eve’ for the fourth year running, and the NYE app will still ‘connect the world to this spectacular event.’
The Sydney NYE Telstra App will allow users with an Australian mobile number to pre-load up to 50 standard SMS that Telstra will send for free from midnight local time, helping to connect friends and family throughout the festivities.
Fans in Australia and around the globe can also experience the world class event live.
Exclusive to Telstra, the fireworks displays at both 9pm and midnight will be streamed on the app, (iOS version here, Android version here) as well as on Telstra’s NYE page and via Telstra’s YouTube Channel.
Telstra says ‘you’ll feel like you’re right in the middle of the iconic Sydney Harbour.’
Telstra General Manager of Loyalty & Partnerships, Fady Taouk, said Telstra was ‘thrilled to once again support such a breathtaking event.’
“Telstra is delighted to collaborate with City of Sydney and provide audiences in Australia and globally with the opportunity to connect with one of the biggest New Year’s Eve spectacles in the world,” said Taouk.
The 2015 Sydney New Year’s Eve Telstra App will also provide Australians with exciting content leading up to NYE, as well as events news on the night itself.
If you’re in Sydney on the night, the App can also help you find a great spot to watch the fireworks.
