British music streaming player Electric Jukebox, backed by Robbie Williams, Stephen Fry, Alesha Dixon and Sheryl Crow, launched to much fanfare yesterday.
Electric Jukebox, which is now available in-store at major retailers, is priced at £169 which includes the streaming device, a dedicated wireless controller and a full 1-year Premium Music Pass.
Available in Red, Blue and Charcoal, Electric Jukebox turns your TV into a jukebox with millions of albums.
“We’re delighted to be working with Selfridges, Argos, Amazon and a major TV network to bring Electric Jukebox to British consumers,” said Rob Lewis, CEO of Magic Works, the company behind Electric Jukebox. “More partners will be announced soon.”
Unlike existing music streaming services, Electric Jukebox provides everything you need to start streaming music in one box. The Electric Jukebox TV stick plugs into your TVs HDMI port, instantly turning it into a jukebox.

It boasts a fully licensed music catalogue of over 29m songs and millions of albums.
“Britain has always been at the centre of making music. Now we can be at the centre of a new music revolution. Making music streaming simple. Music streaming made as easy as playing a CD or switching on the radio.” Said Rob Lewis, CEO of Electric Jukebox. “Just plug in, connect to wifi and play. No subscription, no hassle. It’s the perfect gift to get your friends and family streaming this Christmas.”
