Xbox One won't get ad-supported Xbox Music service

Xbox One won't get ad-supported Xbox Music service Contrary to earlier reports, Microsoft's Xbox One console will not be receiving ad-supported free music streaming from Xbox Music.
Instead, Xbox One includes a very limited trial of Xbox Music that lets users play 15 songs free before they require a Music Pass, with new users able to sign up for a 30-day free trial.

That essentially means that the Xbox One is in the same boat as the Xbox 360 when it comes to the music streaming service.

A tweet by Albert Penello, who heads up Xbox One product planning, had indicated that Microsoft had moved to an ad-supported free model for the Xbox One.

He recanted his statement and apologized in a follow-up tweet this morning.

What a waste. Nothing like listening to music jammin out on the whopping speakers of a TV that most will have their Xbox One hooked up to.

who the hell cares about stupid songs?? the xbox one sucks. the ps4 will outsell it big time. microsoft is trying so hard to derail the ps4 before its launch with stupid free songs which can be downloaded for free anyway.

XBOX ONE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

Many people have tv's that are hooked up to speakers powered by receivers/amps/etc. I never use the xbox music stuff.
