We love listening to music in this family, we always have the radio on during the day to have background music while we play or tidy the house. The thing is with radio is there are constant interruptions from DJ’s talking nonsense isn’t there? So when I was asked whether I would like to try out a new device from Electric Jukebox, I was intrigued!
It is a very clever little device, that comes in 2 parts; a remote and a dongle. The dongle connects to your wifi and to your tv via the HDMI port.
Once you are all plugged in and connected to wifi you then have access to 29 million songs! 29 million!! That is amazing! What is even better is that there are new songs added all the time and they have current number ones accessible too!
The remote is easy to use, with 4 simple buttons. All self explanatory but the best one is the little mic button at the bottom. Pressing that activates voice control! So brilliant!
Tell the remote which artist you are looking for and it will bring them up! Honestly it is so simple even my girls are able to use it!
The program itself is easy to navigate too, with the point and click feature, and I like that you can add songs to your favourites in ‘My Music’, making them easier to access the next time you turn it on.
The best part for me is the fact that after the one-off payment of £169 it is completely free to use. You get a licence for 1 year, with no ads at all and no monthly fee. After your year is up, you have 2 options; either pay £52 for another year of ad-free listening or keep it free but have ads running every now and then. For a pound a week that works out great either way I think!
