    I'm so sad... I just started streaming. I really enjoy it.... The fact that they're doing this is putting them behind other music streaming services :(

    Anybody else sad about the death of free streaming?

    If you really like the product, consider buying an Xbox music pass. It is a shame that they are doing away with the free version, but I'm guessing that there may have been a music licensing issue that came into play with it? I could see the RIAA having a part in their decision to stop.

    Hopefully they're getting rid of it in place of the free XBM OneDrive music locker service. My physical collection on my desktop is about 3 weeks' worth xD

    It all depends on how you look at this, I guess that MS have to pay a small fee every time a track is played, add this up for all the free users and it probably amounts to a lot of money, and the only source of income to cover this would be the users who pay for the service, so in effect they are either getting less of a service or it's costing them money.

    I do have a music pass, I have about 1400 songs that were ripped from CD's but I now have an additional 2000 songs that I have downloaded over about 10 weeks, I am a bit tight fisted and sceptical of subscription services but this service is well worth it for me.

    Any new news on this? I was expecting to have heard something to correspond with the phase out of free streaming.

    Hey it sgonna go on sale tomorrow only. The last 12 day of Christmas. If u are near a Microsoft store its 30 bucks or something, but its 50 bucks online. That's half the cost of the full year which is 100 bucks. 50 bucks for a year is like paying for Xbox live, but 30 bucks is a steal if u have a store near you.
