News via Paul Thurrott that Microsoft’s last grandfathered piece of Zune Content – the Zune Music Pass – is about to be archived. Users of the subscription music service that also offered ten free DRM-free downloads a month will be switched to the Groove music service (neé Xbox Music Pass) in October. And yes, the ten free downloads are not carrying over:
As of November 15, 2015, Zune services will be retired, You will no longer be able to stream or download content to your device from the Zune music service. However, Zune devices will still function as music players and any MP3 content that you own on the Zune device will remain there. You’ll also be able to transfer music to and from your Zune player. Existing Zune Music Pass subscriptions will be converted to Groove Music Pass subscriptions.
