Xbox Video to be cut from WP7, Zune client and Zune devices If you own a Windows Phone 7 device, or a Zune device and have bought content from Xbox Video, then you'd better read this.
Microsoft has revealed that from February, Windows Phone 7 devices, Zune devices and the Zune PC client will no longer be able to play Xbox Video content. So if you have previously purchased content from Xbox Video, you won't be able to play it on that hardware/software.

"This update will allow us to more quickly and efficiently add the highest quality video content to the Xbox Video service," The Xbox Video Team said.

For content that you have purchased, you can still view it on your PC or Mac at XboxVideo.com, or on an Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows 8 / 8.1 PC or on a Windows Phone 8 device.

Support for Windows Phone 7 devices, Zune devices and the Zune PC client will be cut from "late February 2014."

You've been warned!

I'm a bit disheartened as far as Zune device and PC client support is concerned. I actually like the client and use it to sort my music collection. Also, although most smart phones these day have a media player, I prefer using my ZuneHD (Xmas present '09) rather than drain my phone battery.

Alas, such is progress.
