Adding Bitcoin as a payment method.

I have not been able to afford XBox live for some time now but recently discovered the couple dollars I left idle in my Bitcoin Wallet are worth almost $200 hundred now.  Did some googling and seen this (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/13942/microsoft-account-add-money-with-bitcoin) stating than you can add bitcoin, However when I try I do not see the  option for me to add Bitcoin where it should be.  Was this option removed? or maybe not available in my country of Canada?  Thanks for any assistance.

I had the same question after seeing this Bitcoin infographic stating that Microsoft accepts Bitcoin as one of the payment methods.

Just in case anyone is wondering the same in 2019: yes, Microsoft is still accepting Bitcoin, but only in their store. Though, through last years the store has expanded, so now you can buy some popular games like Metro Exodus etc.
