Robbie and Kylie’s free ‘Netflix for music’ launches in the UK, with a 1 million giveaway.
With its new ROXi Music TV app, a British music streaming service is taking on Spotify and MTV. It’s completely free, and it even has a karaoke feature.
With celebrity backers Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, a British music streaming service dubbed a “Spotify killer” has just launched a new TV music app.
The ROXi TV Music App is completely free, and it allows anyone in the UK to stream 70 million music videos, albums, and songs on a variety of TVs.
Furthermore, the company is giving away one million free microphones to encourage people to use its unique ‘karaoke’ feature, which allows you to sing along with celebrities to over 140,000 songs, with their families.
Sheryl Crow and Alesha Dixon, both judges on Britain’s Got Talent, have endorsed the app, which includes a number of music games such as ‘Name The Song.’
“Through a free TV Music App, we’re bringing music videos, karaoke, and games into people’s homes so millions of households can enjoy music videos together, sing together, dance together, and play together,” ROXi CEO Rob Lewis said.
“Most musicians hope that when they create music, it will be shared with others rather than just listened to alone on headphones.”
You can get the ROXi music app for your smart TV, Amazon Fire, Sony Bravia, or Sky Q box, or you can order a set top box from ROXi’s website.
This includes a free karaoke microphone for use with the system as well as a ‘premium music pass’ that allows you to listen to all of the music without ads.
With 55% of Brits now using on-demand video TV apps like Netflix and Disney, it appears that ROXi is hoping to cash in on the trend with its music offering.
