Zune Pass: Now with 10 Free MP3s a month

November 21, 2008

More Zune news trickles out. image Customers spoke and Zune listened.  The people said

“We want all you can eat music, but let us keep the ones we like.” 

“Oh and make sure the songs are MP3s”

“P.S. Make sure the music doesn’t suck. Make the MP3 library a part of the offer”

So now as a Zune Pass subscriber you can download from millions of tracks, and you can keep 10 songs a month as MP3s in your permanent collection for $14.99/mo.  Even if you don’t like the subscription model, this is still a pretty sweet deal.  I know my Zunes and other devices will be happy during the holidays.

    Yes, this is all good stuff, but how about letting us Europeans use/buy the Zune as well? I’m telling you, the minute you let me buy a Zune and a ZunePass here in Norway I’ll buy it. And I’ll get one for my wife. I promise! πŸ™‚

    Also; how about making this new offer really matter? How you say? Turn the 10 credit points into Microsoft points of course! That aggregates of course! πŸ™‚ And also; make it possible to just see MP3s or mark them clearly as such!

    I hear you Jarle (and great avatar BTW). Those are both good ideas.

    Sean: I do hope you really are hearing me. I know that the music industry isn’t the easiest folks to work with, but Apple has done it (itunes is available here) so you guys should be able to pull it off. And let me say one more thing about itunes; what a crappy piece of software that is! I LOVE the new Zune software, it’s stable, fast and looks awesome! If I could have Zune as well I’d be one happy camper! πŸ™‚ Oh, and if you need more hands to develop you Digital Media software/strategy either here in Norway or anywhere else in the world I’m your man! πŸ˜‰
    Thanx for listening!

    PS: Ice Age is cool! pun intended. πŸ˜‰
