Microsoft rolls out Zune Pass affiliate program

Depending on whom you talk to and how you think, affiliate links are either a good way for websites to pay the bills or the sign that a website has sold out to the man. Knowing how much it costs to pay geeks to write for a site and how much it costs to host a website I certainly understand the need for ads and affiliate links.

If you like affiliate programs Microsoft and 5 Star Affiliate programs have announced a new one for the Zune Pass subscription music service. Affiliates will be able to earn a commission for each Zune Pass subscription sold at $14.99 per month.

Affiliates can get media to advertise with including banners and widgets that let users listen to 30-second song clips before they buy. Microsoft and 5 Star are both mum on exactly what the commission is for each subscription sold.
