The Guardian is claiming that Zune HD won’t launch in the UK, and will rather be a US-only affair.

Instead, European punters will be given only access to Zune Video via Xbox 360.

The press release does only say that the handheld will be “available in the US this fall”.

Existing subscribers to Xbox Live are expected to be offered unlimited access to Microsoft’s video catalogue for a single extra payment each month, says the report.

We’re checking with Microsoft now.
