Yeah, this is some straight up robbery Microsoft/XBox is pulling. I bought a second XBox to serve as an extender, since I wanted to get rid of all Comcast h/w that I could. I called about converting my one Live Gold account to the Family account and was told they no longer had this. I was able to use Netflix/Amazon and another streaming service I have membership on for a couple of days with the new box but then I started getting the message about needing Gold to stream these services.
So why is it that I need to give these jokers $10/month for something I can get for free (well at least on the streaming client) with a PC and mobile devices? This is bull. So now I just use my single Live Gold and login using that profile using the box of choice that I want to stream with. I have a couple of Rokus but only my Windows Media Center (that I paid an extra $10 bucks to put on my Windows 8 hosts) and extenders can interface with my HomerunXD Prime 3-tuner networked cable router.
I probably should have just kept Comcast boxes and only gotten robbed by one business. I like supporting the economy, so I am sharing my wealth with Amazon, MS and numerous smaller fish. Comcast is my second mortgage.
