If you've yet to ditch your living room stereo for music streaming, this plug-and-play device could be just what you want. We go hands-on.
LONDON -- As you'd expect from a device with such a simple premise, there's not much to the Electric Jukebox's design. There's just the main dongle, with an HDMI connector, and the remote control.
Besides this bright red color it also comes in light blue or charcoal black.
The standard HDMI plug connects to the corresponding port on your TV.
The remote has a Micro-USB port for charging, the same as most phones.
There are just a few buttons on the remote as you primarily interact with the Electric Jukebox using motion control -- much like a Nintendo Wii remote.
Alternatively, you can use the microphone on top of the remote for voice control.
The onscreen interface, which is powered by the Web standard HTML5, begins with a home screen that shows just three options: your saved music, new music you might like, and a search option to find specific tunes or artists.
Wave the wand to select your option.
Or talk into your remote to make your selection.
Artists are displayed with names and large photos.
After the first year, you can either choose to listen to the radio channels and playlists curated by musicians such as Sheryl Crow and Robbie Williams, with ads...
Or you can pay an annual subscription of £60 or $60 for access to the full streaming service.
