Xbox Live to remove Gold requirement for Streaming Video Services

We can report that multiple sources within Microsoft have been briefed on plans to make a long-awaited change to the Xbox Live Gold paywall for streaming media services. According to our sources, Xbox 360 and Xbox One users will soon no longer need a paid subscription to Xbox Live Gold to access Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming media apps.

Great news — you can already get ABC iView without Gold in Australia, but SBS and YouTube still required a paid membership I believe.
