Live stream Macy's 4th of July 2022 fireworks in NYC: how to watch for free
The Shortcut is live streaming the Macy's 4th of July 2022 fireworks for free on YouTube – even if you aren't in New York City. Here's what time the 4th of July fireworks begin
The Macy’s 4th of July 2022 fireworks live stream is something The Shortcut is going to capture through a YouTube live video. I tried doing it last year, but there wasn’t a lot of bandwidth – though I did end up with stunning photos of the fireworks against the Manhattan skyline.
This year, the 2022 4th of July fireworks in NYC will be different, and I’ll be juicing up the live stream with the surprises. Here’s how to watch it.
4th of July fireworks YouTube live stream
I’ll be capturing Macy’s 4th of July fireworks from a reliable wired connection with three cameras and a DJI gimbal – and it’ll all be set to music. It’s… a production. Of course, there no telling what could go wrong with this year’s 4th of July fireworks live stream, but is an alternative to the NBC broadcast (I haven’t watched TV stations in years) and you don’t have to sign up for Peacock to get a glimpse of the fireworks action live in New York City. It’ll all be free of charge on YouTube.
In addition to the fireworks live stream, I’ll be giving away a PS5 before and after the fireworks live stream – and every one of the PS5 controller colors. I’ve helped nearly 300,000 people get a PlayStation 5 through my PS5 restock alerts, and it’s time to help more people get a console through an epic giveaway.
The Macy’s 4th of July fireworks starts at 9:25pm ET (Eastern Time since it’s, after all, in New York City). However, I’ll be hosting a pre-show three hours before the actual fireworks start time, just as we see the FDNY boats and NYPD helicopters make an appearance (last year, this happened just after 6pm ET).
About the 4th of July fireworks live stream
These 4th of July fireworks last about 25 minutes, and I plan to set the live stream to music. I’ll also be on the Queens side, which offers a stunning view of Manhattan, including the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building within one shot. New York City really lights up nicely at this annual event, so I’m eager to launch the live stream video so that everyone around the United States – and the world – can enjoy it.
