For a long time now, gamers on the Xbox platform have been waiting for Microsoft to remove Xbox Live Gold as a requirement for streaming media services like Neflix, Hulu and others. According to a new report from ARSTechnica, this change might just take place shortly.
The report cites unspecified "sources", which go on to add that Xbox Live might put other services behind the paywall to compensate for this shift.
However, the source could not confirm whether the services in question would be existing ones or new services like TV series from Xbox Entertainment Studios.
This news comes at a time when Microsoft is planning out its announcements for E3, which is scheduled for June.
