Well the days of saving your best karaoke songs for the bar are over. Now you can turn your Roku into a home karaoke machine. We’ll show you how to make Roku karaoke the life of the party, and you’ll never even have to leave the house.

What is Roku Karaoke?

With Roku Karaoke you can perform vocal-free versions of popular songs while the lyrics show up on your TV. Through the power of Roku, you’ll have access to pop, hip hop, rock, and country songs many of them available for free. Literally thousands of hit karaoke songs are out there just waiting for you to sing them.

If you don’t already have a Roku, then this is the perfect gift for any singer in your house. Roku channels can allow you the full entertainment experience at home. You can pay for a membership services that will give you a huge collection of songs, or find music-only karaoke version of songs online. So make plans with your mates, and embrace the singer inside you. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of everything else that Roku can do.

Getting to Know Roku:

Roku is so much more than just a karaoke machine. It’s a full on streaming platform similar to Amazon Firestick that gives you access to hundreds of TV Shows and Movies, all available instantly from your TV. You can use it to connect major streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Go straight to your TV, or you can unlock the power of Roku private channels to stream free movies and shows.

No matter what you watch on your Roku, we strongly recommend that you protect your data and privacy from being tracked or blocked by using a Roku VPN. A good VPN will allow you to stream, confident that your information and browsing history will be kept secret, and also help you get around blocks and firewalls that may be limiting your access to parts of the internet.

Wonder What Karaoke Is?

For those who are uninitiated, let’s take a moment to talk about what karaoke is.

Do you know that moment when you’re stuck in traffic in your car and your favorite song comes on. Suddenly you find yourself singing along with the lyrics at the top of your lungs, and you start to wonder if maybe you’re just a pop star waiting to be discovered. I mean, what do these people have that you don’t?

Karaoke is your opportunity to test that out. With a microphone and a vocal-free version of popular songs, you can have your own band to back you up while you belt out tunes like the diva you are. You can do this alone, or you can add a few friends and several drinks to give this show an audience. Sound like fun? Of course it does.

Karaoke has been a popular late-night bar activity for decades, and it used to require special equipment. Now Roku karaoke lets you sing hit karaoke songs at home, so turn down the lights and get ready to sing, because you’re about to shine.
