Microsoft to drop XBox Gold Live membership requirement for streaming apps

XBox StreamingIf you have been using Microsoft XBox you will know, for using the streaming apps such as Netflix, 4OD and Amazon Prime Instant you will need to have a XBox Live Gold membership although the rivals Sony PS3 and Nintendo Wii have been giving free access to the users of these platforms. Anyway latest news reports suggest that this is soon going to change. According to an unofficial report from Ars Technica, Microsoft will soon be announcing that most media streaming apps will not require Xbox Live Gold anymore. We’re hoping that Microsoft will be making the official announcement during Microsoft’s E3 2014 Media Briefing on 9 June.
