Fourth of July fireworks live streams: How to watch online tonight

The best place to watch fireworks on the Fourth of July is in person, preferably on a blanket in the middle of a green park. But that's not always possible – maybe you don't live near a fireworks display, you're too sick to leave the house, or the weather has proven difficult. In that case, you can watch the fireworks online.

The most famous fireworks display that can be streamed online is the Macy's fireworks display over the Hudson River. Former mayor Bill de Blasio started the tradition a decade ago and now you can watch it without leaving your home. The show includes 60,000 fireworks in 30 different colors at 1,000 feet in the air.

NBC will stream it live at 8 p.m. ET, hosted by country singer Mickey Guyton and Access Hollywood's Zuri Hall. As with other Macy's holiday events, there's more on the agenda than just the fireworks — come for the explosions, but stay for musical performances by Lainey Wilson, Luis Fonsi, Tanner Adell, Bell Biv DeVoe, Shaboozey and more.

“Whether you're at home or on the go, experience every dazzling display, every guest appearance, every live performance and every incredible moment of America's favorite fireworks spectacular,” Macy's said on its website.

If you don't have cable, you can watch it on Peacock, NBC's streaming service. If you don't have cable or Peacock, you can download a free trial of the streaming service, or do the same for a live TV streaming service like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and Sling.
