The two sides settled the dispute last July for undisclosed financial terms after the British broadcasting group won an initial case in a UK court.

Microsoft said the change would be made soon but did not give a date.

While the rebranding does not involve a change to the service's logo - two blue clouds on a white background - it does bring the name more in line with other company brands.

Last July, Microsoft reorganised its corporate structure to focus on providing devices and services in a strategy it called One Microsoft.

Its latest game console, released in November, is called Xbox One.
