Microsoft announces the possibility of refunds for Xbox Live subscribers who only use media apps
Microsoft has revealed that Xbox Live Gold subscibers who only use media apps will be eligible for a refund when media apps move from behind the Gold paywall.
Microsoft will be offering up pro-rata refunds for those who wish to cancel their Xbox Live Gold subscriptions when Netflix, Hulu Plus and the likes become Xbox Live Free services.
The FAQ stated, “Once the Xbox One and Xbox 360 system updates become available in June, Xbox Live Gold members who purchased a paid membership before that day can cancel and receive a pro-rata refund of any unused remaining days between the date of cancellation and the date their paid Gold membership ends. Cancellation and pro-rata refund requests must be made by August 31, 2014 and require six to eight weeks for processing.”
Media apps will become part of Xbox Live Free on Xbox One and Xbox 360 when the system update arrives in June.
