LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2008) - The Karaoke Channel Online, a subsidiary of Stingray Digital Media Group, announces today the launch of a new platform that incorporates social sharing tools and full-screen mode, taking online karaoke to the next level. The new features include a full-screen mode that allows for increased visibility and themed aesthetics, as well as a sharing application.

The Karaoke Channel Online is the first to offer its users the ability to record themselves singing along to their favorite hits and then share their rendition with friends and family through email or posting to social networking Web sites.

The easy-to-use and stylish full-screen mode application will increase the visibility of the lyrics on the computer monitor and provide various themed options, creating a more enjoyable party experience.
