Karaoke for Xbox 360 Brings the Fun of Singing Home

MONTREAL, Canada, November 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The KARAOKE Channel to collaborate on a new entertainment service for Xbox LIVE

The KARAOKE Channel, a property of Stingray Music USA Inc., an affiliate of the innovative Montreal-based provider of multi-platform music services Stingray Digital Group Inc., today announced their collaboration on "Karaoke" for Xbox 360, an exciting new entertainment service that will be available for download through Xbox LIVE in time for the holidays.

The KARAOKE Channel will draw on its leading expertise in the karaoke business to provide Xbox LIVE members with streaming of a complete library of karaoke songs, further enriching the unique experience Xbox 360 owners already enjoy.  With a library of over 8,000 songs including the latest hits and golden oldies, in top genres like Pop, Rock, Country, R&B/Hip-Hop and more, there will be songs for everyone in the family to enjoy.

"As the owner of the world's largest licensed karaoke library and karaoke service on TV and Internet, the KARAOKE Channel will combine its expertise with the advanced capabilities of the Xbox 360 platform from Microsoft to develop the best in-home karaoke experience ever," says Eric Boyko, President and CEO of Stingray Digital Group Inc. "Now anyone can access our vast library and sing in a fun and interactive way right from their Xbox."

"Karaoke" for Xbox 360 is simply fun

"Karaoke" for Xbox 360 is easy to launch and makes it easy to sing. Karaoke fans will sing along to scrolling lyrics on screen while their avatar performs the song on stage with a full complement of stage props, backup band and an adoring audience. The more songs are sung and poses struck, the more moola, props, fans and fun are earned as achievements are awarded.

Songs don't require downloading; they play immediately via streaming for a robust karaoke experience. To keep the party going, songs can be queued via the top navigation through search, browse or SmartGlass integration, which connects a tablet or mobile device to the Xbox 360 console. Songs can be added to Favorites so they're super-easy to find, or can be found through the History list to sing them over and over again. Other options include key change and a lead vocal track to help sing less familiar songs. To access all of the features, an Xbox 360 Headset, Xbox Wireless Microphone or an Xbox 360 compatible USB microphone is required.

Available on Xbox LIVE in time for the holidays, "Karaoke" for Xbox 360 will have a selection of free sample songs that will change frequently. Full access to the entire library is available for blocks of 2, 6 or 24 hours by redeeming Microsoft Points. Songs are added to the library on a regular basis as they are produced and licensed, giving everyone a great reason to launch The KARAOKE Channel on Xbox LIVE to discover new songs to sing.
