Microsoft to offer free Xbox Live media apps for five days

updated 01:25 pm EDT, Tue April 17, 2012

Xbox Live services to go free from April 19-23

In an attempt to get some more users hooked on its premium Xbox Live subscription service, Microsoft will offer it for free for five days, commencing on Thursday, April 19, and running until Monday, April 23. Partners like Hulu Plus, Netflix, and EPIX will also open their doors for free during the same time period. Depending on where users are, however, they will get various amounts of free app access during those five days.

In the US, the freely accessible apps will include CinemaNow, Crackle, Dailymotion, EPIX, ESPN, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, iHeartRadio, Last.fm, MSN, Netflix, Syfy, TMZ, Today, UFC, Verizon, VEVO, Vudu, Xfinity TV, and YouTube.

The unlock doesn't constitute full access to Xbox Live Gold, as multiplayer gaming will stay limited to paying members. Also, the free Netflix trial is only available to those who haven't yet used a free month's trial. On the positive side, the Hulu Plus trial will last a whole month as well.
