A first in the industry this should prove to be a game changer of how the masses will enjoy music."
The outdoor activation helped the huge audience who gathered there in understanding the benefits of the service as unlike other traditional Karaoke services, Tata Sky’s Karaoke service showcases music videos along with lyrics which enhances the overall singing experience. A distinctive feature of the service is the ‘Sur Meter’ that rates an individual’s singing performance and provides for interesting competition opportunities.
