Report: Xbox Will Stop Charging You To Watch Netflix, Hulu

According to "multiple sources within Microsoft", Ars Technica is reporting that Microsoft is set to ditch its long-standing strategy of making users pay for Xbox Live Gold to access services like Netflix and Hulu Plus. Services users already pay for anyway.

The change, if true, would likely be announced at E3.

If you think that's good news, hold tight; Ars also reports that, to compensate, "Xbox Live Gold may put other services behind the paywall to make up for this shift".

We've contacted Microsoft for comment, and will update if we hear back.
