Zune Pass is the monthly subscription services available from the Zune MarketPlace. For just $15 per month subscribers are able to download all the music they can fit on their Zune for one low monthly rate. For those of us that purchase more than one CD per month this can add up to a huge savings on the cost of buying music.
A Zune Pass also opens the world of music to you with unrestricted sampling of new music. You can use your Zune and the Zune MarketPlace to find new musicians and artists you may never have heard if you had to buy the CD. Buy a Zune Pass subscription and experiment with music, open up your mind to the world of music.
Check out free Zune pass trial when you buy a new Zune and catch on to the monthly music subscription.
This information comes from the original Zune Presspass release:
• Zune makes it easy to find music you love — whether it’s songs in your existing library or new music from the Zune Marketplace:
• Its dynamic music service will be continually updated with new content and experiences so there is always something to discover. The Zune Marketplace lets users browse and purchase songs individually.
• A Zune Pass subscription gives consumers access to millions of songs for $14.99 per month.
Users can purchase songs individually using Microsoft® Points for 79 points per track. Similar to a pre-paid phone card, Microsoft Points is a stored value system that can be redeemed at a growing number of online stores, including the Xbox Live® Marketplace.
