Want to know if I can add a child to my Gold membership account

I would like to set up my children with their own gamertags on my Gold Membership so they can play with their friends, is this possible and if so how do I do this.  I am using an Xbox 360.

Thanks,

Mark

You can create a child account and when the system realises they're under 18 you will need to associate them with a parental account (yours). This will tie them to your account. However, to play multiplayer online they will need their own Gold subscriptions; they do not benefit from yours. (On a One this is not the case, but you say you're on 360.)

a year just to play with your friends.

Totally Agree.  Individual gold member ship is a JOKE.  For my family of 5 it would cost £200pa ($340)!!!!!! We have one account for my eldest son, but now we cannot download any of the 'FREE' gold games because he is < 18!!!!!  I'm not at all happy with it.

BlamedTie, that is the way it is. No one is forcing you to buy. You have to deal with it.

With the Xbox One, you can share your one gold membership with anyone else who logs in to your xbox console. They log in to their profiles and they can still use the gold features.
