The family memberships were discontinued for sale early this year. The september update simply ended the grandfather clause on existing family memberships.

The Xbox 360 has no way to share your gold with other people. You will need to purchase gold for each account.

However, the Xbox one with allow you to share your gold. when you are setting up your profile on an Xbox One it will ask you if you want to share, and you simply need to say yes. When you are sharing your gold with a  console everyone on that console will be able to access gold features, but only while on that console. If they go to a different console, then someone else will need to be sharing with that console in order to access gold. You can also only share your gold with one console, because otherwise there would only ever need to be one gold member who is willing to share his account with everyone :P

Yes, the family pack was discontinued, in the september update I believe. As with many other wonderful things about microsoft, there are some cons. You will have to buy a separate membership for each family member.

If you want you and your son to both be gold members for each of your gamertags than perhaps buy a "Family" type subscription of xbox live gold. It allows up to four registered gamertags to have their own gold "status" and access to all the benifits of gold membership. Otherwise it's not possible to do without paying for a completely new single membership.

You can't.Gold membership is per account & can't be shared across accounts.

You would need to buy a seperate gold membership for  each account that wants it.
