Telstra welcomed the new year in as the streaming sponsor of last night’s spectacular 2014 Sydney fireworks show in partnership with the City of Sydney.

Telstra created the official Sydney News Year’s  Eve mobile app and were happy how it all integrated with the Sydney New Year’s Eve Telstra YouTube Show live from Sydney Harbour.

The Telstra YouTube show was hosted by Luke Jacobz, Em Rusciano, Jules Schiller and Anna Teslik who counted count down to midnight with special guests Troye Sivan and Tyler Oakley.

The official smartphone app had an Australian first created where we allowed users the ability to watch exclusive videos from New Year’s Eve with incredible 360° view of all the fireworks fun.

The 360 degree footage of the pyrotechnics were captured using two purpose-built drones equipped with HD cameras which created its own custom UAVs.

 The Telstra drones could fly at 1000ft as users of the Telstra mobile app were be able to switch between different camera angles as they watched the display.
