It’s time to say goodbye to the Zune Marketplace for its end is drawing near. In a press release Microsoft announced that the Zune Marketplace will no longer offer its rental, purchase or browsing services  “as early as” November 22, which is the same day the Xbox One launches. If you are a Zune user, your library will be displayed as a virtual collection. Purchased Zune video content will transfer over to Xbox Video. For those with remaining Microsoft Points, they can be converted to your local currency by purchasing content or redeemable for Microsft Points code.

Despite this being the end Zune of Marketplace, the Zune hardware will remain usable. Owners of Zune hardware will still be able to enjoy playback of previously-purchased content from their personal collection on their devices.
