Rumor – Zune Marketplace getting revamped as streaming video service on Xbox 360

A report over on The Daily states the Zune Marketplace on Xbox Live could be changing into a streaming subscription service. According to an anonymous source at Microsoft, the Zune service could take on the same sort of streaming option Netflix and Hulu Plus offers. It’s unknown if the new initiative will be part of the console’s streaming TV service set to launch in the fall or not, or even if it is part of the rumored Diamond TV service MS was rumored to announce at E3. We’ll send a mail and ask. Thanks, Joystiq.
