StarHub – BT
Sing the blues away with StarHub’s KaraOK!
EVER croaked in front of your colleagues whilst singing karaoke and embarrassing yourself? Well, StarHub may have a solution to your problems. On Monday, the info-communication company will launch a new service named KaraOK!, which allows customers to access karaoke videos through their HubStation or Hubstation HD set top boxes.
The service will be offered on either a monthly or a daily basis. StarHub TV Customers will be able to subscribe to the service at $10/month or pay $4.50 for a 24-hour period. Some 5,000 videos will be made available from launch, with about 100 videos to be added weekly.
The full library of 30,000 karaoke videos in various languages is estimated to be available by the end of the second quarter. Songs made available will range from classics to the latest releases, with more than 10 song categories available to customers.
StarHub has linked up with at least 10 record labels including Warner Music Singapore, Sony Music Singapore and Universal Music Singapore in order to keep its library up to date. According to Tan Tong Hai, chief operations officer of StarHub, the service aims to be more of a complementary service than a direct competitor to karaoke operators. Those interested in trying out the service may visit the KaraOK! roadshow at Plaza Singapura from Jan 25-28.
