XBox Live for family members

We have a Xbox One and a Xbox 360.  I have Xbox Gold for my account, however I created an account for my son.

I was hoping that he would be able to play Minecraft online via his account on Xbox 360, but it's grayed out which the forums tell me is due to lack of xbox live gold.

However, on the Xbox One, he can log into his account and play Minecraft online on that console.  Why the difference? Does the Xbox One not require gold or is there a better way to let him use my gold, without having to buy another subscription?

The XBOX ONE has a share built in. Meaning any person who has an account on that console (whether they have a gold subscription or not) can enjoy all the content that the active gold subscriber has purchased.  The 360 does not allow this and you would need to purchase a second subscription for your son in order for him to play games online.

I hope that answers your question :)
