ROXi launches smart TV app

November 8, 2021

A Robbie Williams-backed British music streaming firm which boomed during lockdown is being tipped to become the ‘Netflix for Music; with the launch of its new free ROXi TV Music App.

Williams, was amongst a host of high-profile stars – including Aussie songstress Kylie Minogue Grammy award-winning artist Sheryl Crow and Britain’s Got Talent judge, singer and presenter Alesha Dixon – to also back ROXi as Celebrity Curators and Shareholders.

ROXi’s new TV Music App will allow millions of Brits to stream every music video, album and song with 70 million tracks and all the latest releases, exclusive music video channels, sing karaoke and play music games for free. With the new app launching on Sky Q, Fire TV, Android TV and Google TV on compatible Sony Bravia, Panasonic, Philips, Toshiba TCL, Hisense and Shield Smart TVs and set-top boxes with Samsung TV and others to follow soon.

What’s more, and in a bid to top the charts, Brits can now swap their headphones for microphones as the free TV Music App is giving away more than a million ROXi Karaoke Microphones worth £29.99 to new users to sing along to the 140,000 karaoke tracks on ROXi.

The TV service was developed by British entrepreneur Rob Lewis who previously launched the world’s first mobile music streaming service with global music rights at Omnifone in 2007.

ROXi is one of only 10 companies in the world with global on-demand music streaming rights with Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, Merlin and other leading music labels and publishers.

ROXi gives TV users unlimited music video streaming with a catalogue of over 70 million music recordings, including every original music video, album and song, constantly updated with the latest releases.

Karaoke fans can have fun singing ROXi’s 140,000 traditional karaoke and ‘Karaoke With The Stars’ sing along tracks, singing duets with their favourite artists, or test their music knowledge with ROXi’s ‘Name The Song’ music game.

Lewis, who is ROXi’s chief executive, said: “TV is the heart of home entertainment and now is the time for music to join film in this Smart TV App revolution. We’re bringing music videos, karaoke and games into people’s homes through a TV Music App for free so millions of households can enjoy music videos together, sing together, dance together and play together. When they create their music, most musicians hope their work is going to be experienced by people together, not just listened to alone on headphones. Yes, it’s great to enjoy music when you’re on the move or commuting, but it’s even better when enjoyed together on a TV as a music video – that way we feed off each other’s emotional reactions to the audio-visual experience. This next revolution in digital entertainment is about shared experiences that unite friends and family. The launch of our new TV Music App is just the beginning. We have a raft of exciting new ROXi innovations and experiences planned for the future.”
