Microsoft Zune finally hitting UK

Music and video downloads also on cards as UK gets official taste of Zune.

Microsoft’s Zune has never been officially released here in Blighty, instead relying on tech evangelists and import fanatics to gain ground. Until now, that is. The Big M has confirmed that Zune software will be the way you sync up a phone packing Windows Phone 7, and as such it means it’s bringing its stellar line up of services to the UK.

Zune Pass streaming is the real headline grabber here, with punters able to get unlimited access to millions of tunes by dropping £8.99 a month. Unlike US gadget fanatics though, you won’t get to keep 10 nominated tracks a month. Still, it’s a quid cheaper than Spotify Premium.

You’ll also be able to buy and rent videos from the Zune Marketplace store and play them back on your Windows Phone 7 device, Xbox 360 and PC, as well as laying your hands on DRM-free MP3s.

There’s no news on whether the Zune HD, or its rumoured successor, will hit these shores. But with the software getting the thumbs up, surely its arrival can’t be far behind.
