Dallas, Texas, July 31, 2013 — Stingray Digital, the leading supplier of music services for multi-channel television service providers worldwide, and AT&T U-verse®, announced the launch of the Karaoke TV App. The Karaoke TV App, available on U-verse TV channel 96, is a new interactive TV app that delivers the fun of singing more than 8,000 karaoke songs to AT&T U-verse TV and High Speed Internet customers.
This app, which recently won Best Entertainment Application at the 2012 International ITV Awards, revolutionizes the home karaoke experience by featuring thousands of high-quality licensed karaoke songs from today’s top-charting artists as well as yesterday’s legends. The app includes an intuitive menu navigation which makes songs easy to find. A full screen mode provides the ultimate karaoke experience, and customers have the option of singing solo or along with a vocal track. Thematic playlists, like Party Songs, Guy Songs, Girl Songs, Easy and Fun Songs, Love Songs and other lists are included to help customers start singing quickly. Songs can be queued up to keep singers performing without pausing between songs.
“We are honored that AT&T has chosen to offer this interactive karaoke app to their customers,” stated Eric Boyko, President and CEO of Stingray Digital. “As of today, AT&T customers can enjoy the best karaoke experience available on TV: high-quality karaoke videos displayed on TV with the song library, features and convenience that U-verse TV allows via Internet streaming,” Boyko added.
“We’re always looking for ways to make the U-verse experience more interactive,” said GW Shaw, Vice President, U-verse & Video Products, AT&T Home Solutions. “The Karaoke TV App is a perfect fit for our extensive list of interactive apps that help customers engage and have more fun with their U-verse TV experience.”
U-verse TV customers with U-verse High Speed Internet may try the Karaoke TV App for free by tuning to channel 96 and selecting one of the free full-length songs or view other samples. U-verse TV customers can subscribe to the new app for $10 a month, which can be ordered via TV Account Manager on channel 9910. Songs are added regularly to the app.
