Electric Jukebox, a music entertainment company, is hoping that their new ROXI entertainment hub will have families spending more time together enjoying music with its various features.
ROXI utilizes the ROXI Hub which plugs into your TV and streams music over Wi-Fi or a wired connection.

18, August 2017 – New York – Electric Jukebox, the innovative upstart music entertainment brand today launches a new product ROXI, which is set to revolutionise family music entertainment in the home. ROXI serves up an exciting mix of music entertainment in one fun and easy-to-use device. Unlike traditional music streaming, it enables friends and family to listen, sing and play together, powering the experience through the TV and the best speakers in the home.
Electric Jukebox is launching ROXI in response to the growing need for families to have more quality family time together, due to their rising use of personal devices and headphones which are isolating and dividing families, as shown by independent research published today:
- Kids spend a staggering average of 39.5 hours a week isolated on their mobiles, tablets and games consoles, which is more than 2.5 times what they spend conversing with their parents
72% of parents now worry that their kids are missing out on family time by spending too much time on personal devices
67% of parents wish the family would listen to more music together
92% of parents have tried to persuade their kids to spend less time on their personal devices
97% of parents think music could bring their families closer together
Electric Jukebox’s mission is to counter this trend by helping families live better lives together through high-quality shared music entertainment product, content and experiences.
ROXI by Electric Jukebox does more than just music. Whilst families can access millions of tracks like any other premium streaming service, its uniqueness comes from the ability to rock any home with Sing with the Stars, a karaoke singalong, keep families guessing with music trivia in Name that Tune and offer unlimited access to thousands of radio stations from across the world. Not to mention, there are playlists from the Electric Jukebox Curation Team, which includes celebrity curators Sheryl Crow, Robbie Williams, Alicia Dixon and Stephen Fry.
For those families looking for something more tranquil, ROXI by Electric Jukebox has Sound Machine, which includes yoga and meditation melodies, therapeutic sounds such as rain and the ever-popular white noise to help baby sleep.
“I love Electric Jukebox ROXI because it brings people together,” said nine times Grammy award-winner and Electric Jukebox Curator, Sheryl Crow. “Listening to music and sharing those experiences together is what life’s all about. With headphones and mobiles, we’ve somehow lost all that. ROXI plugs into your TV and turns it into a jukebox with all the music you want, played out loud in your home for you to listen, sing and play together. Simple, fun and no fuss.”
“Our research shows children today spend more than 2.5 times as much time with their iPhones, iPads and PlayStations, as they do conversing with their loving parents. ROXI signifies a step-change as we look to turn the TV into the modern fireplace and bring millions of American families together through the shared joy of music. It’s time for music sharing, not headphone wearing”.
ROXI on sale from electricjukebox.com and major online and Main Street retailers from 18 August at SRP $199.
