Zune marketplace expands to UK Microsoft has announced this week that they will be expanding the Zune music and movie store to the UK this fall, giving users in the region a chance to visit the Zune Marketplace.
Additionally, UK consumers can soon use the Zune Passmusic subscription service, which gives you unlimited downloads and streaming for £8.99 as long as you keep the subscription.

The move coincides with the upcoming release of Window Phone 7 devices, and the content will be synced through the phones as well as through Xbox Live.

Says Craig Eisler, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business Group: "The integration between Zune, Windows Phone 7 and Xbox Live is an exciting advance in our entertainment offering."

"Zune enables users access to the entertainment they want, wherever they want it - and now, more people than ever will be able to enjoy the freedom and flexibility that the Zune service offers."


Furthermore, Microsoft will begin offering rentals of movies to users with Windows PCs. The movies can be synced with WP7 phones.

£8.99 a month!?

No thanks, I'll just stream/load up my own music library for free.

If they pitchedt his stuff at a sensible price (say £1 or £1.50 a month) they might be in with a chance of people going for it but £9 a month is just stupid.

Unlimited download and streaming for £9 doesn't seem bad to me
