    2 Xbox ONE consoles in one house. How do I buy games for both consoles and with out buying 2 disk?

    I found a workaround that lets my kids use my games on their Xbox, while I can still play the same games on my Xbox, even play Halo 5 Co-op with my kids on their Xbox (1 kid at a time for Halo 5, both kids for Halo 1-4), and me on my Xbox. Note, I have the only Live Gold account in our household. It's not the preferred solution for this (Yo, Microsoft, Family Gold Subscription, please!), however it works very well for 2 Xbox One consoles. Here's what I had to do...

    (My Xbox)
    1. Settings - Personalization - My home Xbox
    - I removed my Live Gold account from "My home Xbox", leaving no account set for this.
    2. Settings - Account - Sign-in, security & passkey
    - Set my Live Gold account for "Instant sign-in"
    3. Settings - Power & Startup - Turn off or restart - Restart now
    - Rebooted Xbox for settings to take effect.

    (Kids' Xbox)
    I have my Gold account and the regular accounts for my wife and kids set up to login.
    1. Settings - Personalization - My home Xbox
    - Using my Gold account, I selected "Make this my home Xbox"
    2. Settings - Account - Sign-in, security & passkey
    - I set one of my kids' accounts for "Instant sign-in".
    3. Settings - Power & Startup - Turn off or restart - Restart now
    - Rebooted Xbox for settings to take effect.

    My Xbox now has no account set with "My home Xbox", but since it has my Gold account set for Instant sign-in, it will still automatically have access to the games, movies, and other content. However, it won't automatically install purchased games, but that is easily remedied by accessing "My games & apps" from the Xbox home screen, where I will see newly purchased games under the "Ready to Install" section where I can easily install them.

    A Live Gold account can only have one Xbox selected as its "home Xbox", however, on that home Xbox, all other accounts that sign-in will have access to the content purchased by the Gold account. This is what allows my kids to access my Gold account content on their Xbox. In addition to the "home Xbox", any purchases made by a Gold account will follow that account to any "non-home Xbox" where the account is logged-in. Since my account is still set for "Instant sign-in" on my Xbox, my purchases are always available, unless I log out. Other people can still login to my Xbox and use the content I have purchased, as long as my Gold account stays logged in, too. If, for some reason, I login on my Kids' Xbox, it will log me out on my Xbox, but I just log back in when I am done playing with my kids on their Xbox. This let's me play Halo 5 Guardians in Co-op mode with me logged in on my Xbox, and one of my kids logged in on their Xbox, which has access to my Gold account content, because that is my "Home Xbox". So far, I have not encountered any complications with this setup. If I do, I will amend my post here.

    Good luck! I still have not found a way to share content across three Xbox consoles simultaneously, however, this does work for two consoles, even if they are not in the same location. I have also been told that some cablemodems and broadband routers may have trouble with two Xbox consoles accessing Xbox Live games simultaneously from the same residence, but I have Comcast Xfinity Internet service using the WiFi gateway they provided (Cisco DPC3941T wireless gateway/router), and I have not had any trouble playing Xbox Live games on both consoles at the same time.

  3. license transfer question

    I got my kids a 360 for their birthday. Over the years I've downloaded several games for them with my account. I hit license transfer and to put them on theirs not thinking it through. Will the others still be licensed to mineif I connect to live? When exactly does Xbox live change it when you select the transfer and the redownload just lets the 360 know, or does the redownload itself change it?

    transfer xbox live gold account to my kid

    You can contact MS and see about getting a refund for the XBLG membership. Unless there is DLC on your account. If DLC then change the billing info to your son's.

    How could i transfer my Gold Membership to another account?

    While transferring Xbox Live Gold Memberships to other accounts can not be done (to the best of my knowledge) you could use the

    Home Xbox setting
    to use up the remainder of the Xbox Live Gold member ship on that account, and next time, just be sure to redeem/purchase Xbox Live Gold on the correct account.
