If you've never really been happy at the fact you need a Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to access Hulu and Netflix on your Xbox there's a good chance that requirement could be gone soon. It's something that has been on the table for a while now but according to Arstechnica, multiple sources have now been briefed on the matter ahead of June's E3 expo.
According to our sources, Xbox 360 and Xbox One users will soon no longer need a paid subscription to Xbox Live Gold to access Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming media apps. Additionally, we've been told that Xbox Live Gold may put other services behind the paywall to make up for this shift, though those sources could not confirm whether that includes existing services or if that only includes upcoming content like TV series from Xbox Entertainment Studios.
In other words, there's a bit of give and take there. Sure, you'll no longer need to pay $59.99/year for Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming media apps but there could be more interesting stuff put behind the paywall that will make you want to continue paying for it. In any case, it remains a rumor for now but it's a rumor we're looking forward to hearing more about.
