Whoa! This changes everything!!!
Wow, this sorta came out of nowhere. Definitely an interesting idea for a channel.
This isn't really new. The Revue had this as a spotlight channel.
Has anybody out there seen their Revue get the "official" upgrade yet? Mine is still showing 2.1-update1.
Still waiting. Typical Android update - overpromise and underdeliver.
My FiOS TV service already has this.. I have yet to see one TV worthy feature that Google TV offers that my TV or TV service doesn't already have built in.....
Not to nitpick, but the title contains a typo. It should say "karaoke" instead of "karoke" Whoops ;)
I noticed that yesterday. Surprised they haven't corrected it yet.
