We'll find out soon enough.
On August 10, 2007 Comcast filed a trademark application for Karaocasting. There's really no other info in the app since Comcast uses the same description for goods and services for almost all of its word marks.
We do know it's not a new karaoke-on-demand service since Comcast has offered that option for a while. We also know it's not karaoke-in-a-restaurant-streamed-online-and-then-possibly-shown-on-VOD since Comcast unveiled that site (Ziddio) and Times Square restaurant (Spotlight Live) on April 6, 2007.
Could be one of two things.
- Maybe Comcast will offer iPod-compatible downloads from Ziddio.
- More interestingly, maybe future Comcast set-top boxes will have an audio input port so that you can sing at home, mix your own tape, and make a podcast to share with the world.
