Xbox Music set for launch tomorrow on 360

I dont use Spotify, iTunes, Last FM or anything like that. This does seem quite good though? Though I cant see myself spending £9 for no ad music?

I use Last.FM,i quite enjoy that,but admittedly i use it more on my PC....but wont be touching this

I actually thought i had read that it was to be free for XBLG peeps,but with commercials £8.99 a month means yet something else i will ignore on the Xbox Dash

Anyone know how this will work?

Or more specifically could I for example stream the music while in game? If not then this doesnt appeal to me any more then that Muzu or whatever its called.

I've had a Zune Pass for going on two years now and I must say it's fantastic, especially when used with Bing Audio search on Windows Phone. You just let the phone recognise a song, and then press download. It's seamless and there's no switching between apps. The Zune software for PC is fantastic too, my Apple fanboy friends always look envious when we're partying at my house. I've never really bothered with it on 360 though, because I just use that for games.

I get the itunes esque solutions for PC, tablet and laptop, but not so much the radio app for the xbox, its a bit crap isn't it? Especially for 9 quid a month. Why would you listen to the radio/music through the TV?

If it was like vidzone on the PS3 I would understand (Sony should have this on all devices and missing a trick), best free app going.

It cannot be played in the background while playing a game.

Quality is poor - 192 kbps. About same as Sony Music on PS3, but nowhere near as good as Spotify at 320 kbps.

Just wondering if it will ever arrive in UK. Not found one review on it yet.
