Electric Jukebox Lets You Stream Music on Your TV Without Subscription Needs
Music streaming services are becoming quite common, but despite that, people are still sticking to the more conventional methods of enjoying their favorite songs and music genres.
According to London-based company Electric Jukebox, a study conducted by YouGov on behalf of the company has so far confirmed this much to be true. 92 percent of the surveyed masses were yet to subscribe to a music streaming service, with many of them finding the need for IDs and passwords rather annoying.
For this very reason, Electric Jukebox has revealed a device that can be connected to the TV to stream music services, without any subscription charges or need for account creation.
“We want to bring music back into people’s living rooms. Rather than huddling around a laptop or smartphone to play music, or being forced to rely on old CDs and radio, we’ve created a music device that is simple and easy to use and which works straight out of the box.”
The above is what Electric Jukebox CEO Rob Lewis had to say about the release of its product. This on-demand service is reported to have an archive of millions of CD-quality albums and singles, all within the reach of couch potatoes who stayed glued to their TVs all day long.
The device has two separate modules that work together. One is a dongle that connects to an HDMI socket at the back on any modern TV, while the other is an elegant microphone-styled remote control.
Users are presented with three icons when the system is activated. You have the option of voice-searching for online music, go through some of Electric Jukebox’s exclusive music from global chart toppers, or build a playlist of their own.
The Electric Jukebox is available for pre-order from today for $199. This is a limited time offer till October 21, after which the pricing will go up to the retail value of $229. This includes a 12 month Premium Music Pass that is worth $60. Shipping is expected to start before the end of the year.
