This weekend, Silver XBox Live members will be able to sample the media applications. Microsoft is set to unlock all of the media apps for everyone, not just Gold subscribers.
Regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of the streaming applications on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I love the access to HDTV and movies via Netflix, Music videos on MuzoTV and even the YouTube and DailyMotion webclips that I can waste some time with. This is a great chance for Silver subscribers to take a look at what the Xbox Live service has to offer and see if it’s worth paying that Gold subscription for it.
Here is the selection that’s being unlocked, although you’ll still need to be a subscriber to the relevant services in order to log into them.
