Microsoft announced today that the company's online service, MSN, has been designated as the exclusive online provider of the official Times Square New Year's Eve 2005 celebration.

Starting around 6 p.m. EST, when organizers light and raise the world-famous New Year's Eve Ball atop One Times Square, and continuing through the ball drop at midnight, MSN Video viewers will be able to select from three streams. In addition to the Times Square New Year's Eve world feed and individual environment cameras, MSN will host the first ever Times Square New Year's Eve 2005 webcast with New York City's own Z100 radio personality Romeo leading the festivities. The collaboration between the Times Square Alliance, Countdown Entertainment, Clear Channel Entertainment TV and MSN allows millions to share in the excitement of the 100th anniversary of the New Year's Eve celebration at Times Square. Limelight Networks will support the streaming video for this unique online experience.

The Times Square 2005 MSN Video webcast will break periodically to stream ads.

The webcast will end at 12:15 a.m.
