Pricing for Microsoft's Zune Pass is being lowered, but it's also dropping a beloved feature
Jumping down in price from $14.99 per month to an easier to swallow rate of $9.99 per month, the new pricing just might nudge some hesitant people to finally cave in and sign up – plus, it’s going to be available to Canadian Zune users as well. However, what’s not cool is the fact that the Redmond-based company is axing the option to download 10 songs that users can choose per month and keep for life. Instead, new users will be subjected to only the unlimited streaming option that the service offers.
For those who are currently on the $14.99 per month plan, they can choose to remain grandfathered into it – meaning, they’ll still have the unlimited streaming option and 10 free downloads per month. Naturally, it’s undoubtedly a double-edged sword for those who have been on the service for some time – but then again, they’ll simply have to make the choice for themselves.
If you're not a current subscriber and wish to pay the higher pricing, then you'd better hurry up and sign up for the $14.99 per month option before it's gone for good.
