US firm Ecast has announced a new $17 million round of funding, which it will use for the continued growth of its network of connected digital jukeboxes. LG Electronics is a new investor, along with the company’s previous VC backers who all chipped in to the new round. Ecast has jukeboxes in 10,000 bars and clubs in the US, allowing people to pick songs while serving more than a billion ads a month.
