A handy tipster sent us a screen shot from the Zune desktop software which conveniently reveals the UK pricing for the service, which is expected to launch concurrently with the phones in mid-October.
The service will cost Â£8.99 for one month, or Â£26.97 for 3 (which means no discount for a longer subscription), and like the US includes 10 free tracks, which at the current price for a CD makes the service more or less free if you buy music regularly.
I have had reservations about signing up to another subscription before, but at these pricing levels its pretty hard to resist.
