You May No Longer Need Xbox Live Gold For Neflix and Hulu Streaming

By   /   May 13, 2014

The race between Microsoft and Sony is going on, with each one trying to give the best possible experience to the players and to make their console one source of all entertainment. However, it is the customers who really get advantages out of the competition between the companies.

Now, some sources of Ars Technica are suggesting that Microsoft might remove the Xbox Live Gold subscription requirement for the usage of streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and others.

There is also a possibility that other apps might become part of the Gold Subscription fee to accommodate the losses that the company will face after taking streaming services off of the Xbox Live Gold.

Sony, on the other hand, has never asked for a monthly subscription fee for the apps related to the streaming so this decision from Microsoft is definitely a step in the right direction.

The sources also mention that this major announcement will be made during the Microsoft’s E3 conference next month, which is scheduled to be held on 9th of June.

As for now, this information should just be taken as a rumor until an official announcement is made by Microsoft, but it is quite likely that the confirmation will not happen before the E3 event next month.

Would you like to get access to Netflix and other streaming apps without the Xbox Live Gold Subscription fee?
