New Megaupload: Kim Dotcom Shows Off Trailer for Megabox

By - Source: Kim Dotcom (YouTube) | B 15 comments

Are you ready for Megabox?

Earlier this week, Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom revealed that preparations for the new Megaupload are well on their way. Dotcom told his followers that the code is almost done and that servers were on the way. Speaking via Twitter, the Megaupload founder said:

"Quick update on the new Mega: Code 90% done. Servers on the way. Lawyers, Partners & Investors ready. Be patient. It's coming."

 

Today brings us more news of the new Megaupload, including a name. Kim Dotcom posted a 'trailer' for the new site to YouTube today. The video doesn't give too much away, but it does offer a behind the scenes look at the making of Megabox, which is the name of the new site. Various screenshots from the video tell us that there will be regular accounts as well as artist accounts. Not only that, but the service will apparently offer unlimited cloud storage for users to stash their music online, as well community and chat functions.

   

So far there's no release date, but we'll keep you posted. In the mean time, you can check out the full video for yourself below.

    This is great for both fans and artists. Especially artists since there'd be more money coming in from this, no record label and RIAA taking 95% of an artist's earning

    Could Megabox be the first step towards making the last panel of this come true?

    I don't see this lasting very long.

    I want it to, but the powers that be will more than likely see otherwise.

    good for him, but...in before FBI raid/RIAA stops this

    This is good for the artists and fans, but the ones who have control now are totally going to do everything they can to stop this.

    you get next to nothing on youtube, to the point that there is a nda on the contract you sign, probably so you cant get a second opinion.
    there are other solutions, but lets be honest, they are so far out of the publics eye that you are almost better off touring bars than using them as a means of getting music out.

    Still going on, but not in jail. So good on him for going ahead with his next plans.
