Microsoft will refund Xbox Live Gold subscribers

Microsoft has announced that it will refund Xbox Live Gold subscribers who wish to cancel their memberships, after the company said it would be dropping paywalls required to access entertainment apps.

Apps such as Netflix, Twitch, and HBO GO currently require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access.

“Once the Xbox One and Xbox 360 system updates become available in June, Xbox Live Gold members who purchased a paid membership before that day can cancel and receive a pro-rata refund of any unused remaining days between the date of cancellation and the date their paid Gold membership ends,” said Microsoft on their Xbox site.

“Cancellation and pro-rata refund requests must be made by 31 August 2014 and require six to eight weeks for processing. Free or trial Gold memberships are not eligible for a refund.”

Xbox owners who want to cancel their subscription can do so through the Xbox site.
