The KARAOKE Channel will be making its way on to Xbox 360 consoles later in the year from Stingray Music which has been described by the development team as “an exciting new entertainment service that will be available for download through Xbox LIVE in time for the holidays.”
Xbox LIVE members will find themselves equipped with a streaming 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. Karaoke fans will be able 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, The KARAOKE Channel 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.
