Xbox Video Support for Zune and Windows Phone 7 Ends in February 2014

Microsoft announced to cut off Xbox Video support for Zune and Windows Phone 7 in this February. Previously purchased Xbox Videos will not be playable through Zune PC client, Zune devices, and Windows Phone 7 after late February 2014 due to video catalog update.

Zune and Windows Phone 7 customers can only play Xbox videos till late February 2014. After this, they will not be able to play their previously purchased Xbox Video content. Microsoft's Xbox Video team has sent out an email notification this Friday to announce that "beginning in late February 2014, any Xbox Video content you own as of then, will no longer be playable through the Zune PC client, Zune devices, or Windows Phone 7 devices. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

Why the Zune and WP7 clients loosing Xbox Video support? Microsoft said that it is a result of an update in their video catalog. Tech giant is going to make a necessary update in their video catalog in late February, 2014. This update will make the Xbox Video service faster and better as it will allow Microsoft "to more quickly and efficiently add the highest quality video content to the Xbox Video service."

But this update will only affect Zune and WP7 users. PC, Mac, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8 & 8.1 PC and tablet, or Windows Phone 8 customers will not be affected by this update. They can still enjoy the Xbox Video content after the update in late February 2014.
