Kim Dotcom Teases Upcoming Megabox Streaming Music Service – Android App Coming Soon [Video]


You’d have to be living under a rock (or at least unconnected from the internet) to have no heard about the man called Kim Dotcom, and all the legal troubles he faced after feds shut down his popular file sharing site, Megaupload.

It looks like the legend is back and he’s uploaded a video of his latest project — Megabox — a music streaming/social network that is no doubt already boiling the blood of record label execs everywhere. Supposedly totally legal, Megabox looks to turn the music industry upside down by paying artists directly when users stream their music, eliminating the middle man altogether (record labels). In the description of the video Mr. Dotcom adds, “This is what they don’t want you to have. Unchaining artists and fans. Megabox is coming soon.” You gotta give it to the man, at least he’s aware of the legal hell he’s about to unleash.

Kim also revealed that Megabox won’t be available in your web browser only, with plans to release iOS and Android applications already in the works. Of course, how long they’ll remain in the Play Store is anyone’s guess. Remember the whole Grooveshark debacle? Check out the teaser vid below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Hopefully the Android version comes first, because there’s a 99.99% chance it will get banned on iOS.

  2. I don’t think this can work. If an artist uses a particular record label to produce their music don’t know they have to enter a binding agreement that they wont make direct sales and everything will go through the label? Allowing the able to make money back on their investment?

  3. Well, I’d always love to see another streaming service. Bring it on, yo!

  4. Looks pretty slick, looking forward to seeing the details :)
