You Can Now Buy Movies Via Zune Video Marketplace, But Still No Zune Music Service

So this morning, Microsoft announced a bit of an international expansion for their Zune service. Here's what it means for Aussies.

Perhaps expectedly, we still don't get access to the Zune music service, which includes the all-you-can-eat Zune Pass subscription service. What we do get is an expanded Zune Video marketplace.

You can now purchase movies to own via Xbox Live - rather than just rent them - as well as purchase and rent for Windows PCs or upcoming Windows Phone 7 handsets. You'll also be able to copy films across your Windows-powered devices to watch them wherever you are.

It's a step forward, certainly, but it would be even better if Microsoft got around to launching Zune Pass down here as well...
