The Zune Pass has long been a monthly service, but starting today you can subscribe yearly. The new annual Zune Pass offers all the benefits of the monthly plan (10 free songs per month, unlimited streaming), but now at a value when subscribing annually. Yearly Zune Pass subscriptions are now $149.90, which breaks out to $12.49 per month. That’s a savings of$2.50 off the regular monthly price of $14.99 and represents a yearly savings of $30.
As we mentioned, AT&T has a promotion offering a free 30-day Zune trial. It’s highly recommended that you give it a try if you pick up a new Windows Phone. It’s an excellent service.
