Neflix & Hulu Could Go Free
Netflix and Hulu may soon be available via Xbox Live to all users – even if they don’t have an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Sources within Microsoft are claiming that the Xbox Live Gold option will be removed for streaming media apps on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Sources also say that other Xbox Live services may be added to the Gold offering to balance the change, but could not confirm whether this refers to existing services or upcoming content like Microsoft’s original programming.
The decision to make the change is not yet finalised, apparently, and Microsoft is expected to make an announcement about the change at its June 9 E3 2014 briefing should it decide to follow through.
