The Zune player is of course supported by the Microsoft online music service called Zune MarketPlace. The Zune MarketPlace provides music and video downloads by either subscription service, known as the Zune Pass, or per song charges using Microsoft Points. The opportunity to have either type should make the Zune a sure hit. It about time the music market had one store to offer both services.
Available in the United States, the Zune Marketplace music service helps establish a foundation for an online community that will enable music fans to discover new music. The Zune portable music video player is a handheld device that features wireless technology, a built-in FM tuner and a bright, 3-inch screen that allows Zune users to not only show off music, pictures and video, but also to customize the experience with personal pictures or themes to truly make the device their own.
Zune players and the Zune MarketPlace makes it easy to find and share music you love — whether it’s songs in your existing library or new music from the Zune Marketplace. Easily import your existing music, pictures and videos in many popular formats and browse millions of songs on Zune Marketplace, where you can choose to purchase tracks individually or to buy a Zune Pass subscription to download as many songs as you want for a flat fee.
