There's some money on offer for those who subscribed to Xbox Live to use services such as Netflix.

Microsoft yesterday confirmed plans to lift the Xbox Live Gold requirement for a number of streaming and entertainment apps.

An update to Microsoft's T&Cs, as spotted by Videogamer, reads: "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.

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