Microsoft announced today that starting tomorrow, April 19 through Monday April 23, they will introduce Xbox Live: Entertainment Unlocked. All of the apps at least in the United States during this time period will be free to anyone that owns an Xbox 360. This means even those without an Xbox Live Gold subscription can watch apps such as: Hulu Plus, Netflix, and EPIX. (These three will be giving out free trials during the time period, so that Xbox 360 users can experience them, as long as you have not used a free-trial with them before.) All users will be able to experience ESPN 3, Youtube, VEVO, IHeartRadio, and more.
Obviously, if you do not have an account with Cable Services XFINITY or Verizon FIOS you still cannot access their On-Demand services. This also applies in the case of MLB.TV and HBO GO, if you do not have working logins for those two services, they will not work during the free period either.
* This promotion does not include free multi-player gaming, this still requires an Xbox Live Gold Subscription *
Here is a full list of the available apps in the US:
- EPIX (Free Trial is Available)
- ESPN 3
- HBO GO (Prior Subscription Needed)
- Hulu Plus (One Month Free Trial Available)
- MLB.TV (Prior Subscription Needed)
- Netflix (One Month Free Trial Available)
- Verizon (Verizon Cable and Internet Services Required to Use)
