Xbox LIVE Preview Program: Zune, Facebook and Twitter


I am happy to announce that we’re doing an Xbox LIVE Update Preview program for upcoming features such as Zune, Facebook and Twitter. Much like we have done in the past, you’ll need to visit the Microsoft Connect site from this link and sign in with your Windows LIVE ID that is connected to your Xbox LIVE Gamertag. 

Once you do that, you need to fill out the "Xbox LIVE Update Preview Sign Up" survey in order to be considered for receiving the Preview System Update. We’re asking a few questions about where you live, your home network, ISP connection and a few other pieces of information. We are looking for a good cross-section of our members in order to get the best feedback we can.
The Xbox team will then review all of the applications and if you’re selected we’ll send you an email notifying you of your acceptance in the program.  A couple of points before you head off to register:

  • We’re looking for multiple thousands of participants, so your chances of making it in are good
  • This opportunity is open to all Xbox LIVE Members in regions where Xbox LIVE is available
  • Just completing the survey does not automatically get you access to the Preview Program. We’ll be making final selections from the completed surveys and send you an email if you are selected.
  • While both Xbox LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up, Priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.

For additional details and specific requirements, head to


If you are accepted, you’ll hear from us in about a week. Make sure your information on Connect is updated with a current email address so we can email you if you are accepted.

  • Xx iTz a GhOsT

    I guess it will come out when sky player is realeased…


  • Goodeye84

    @Xx iTz a GhOsT Actually how I understand it is that is not the case. And people will be getting the dashboard preview worldwide after SKY player is released So these are not one in the same.

    Plus I believe in Major’s twitter he said something about the update coming out Friday for those selected for the first wave.


  • Frogwart

    On the left side of the page, Major noted this about 6 hours ago: “The preview schedule: We close sign ups later today and (if all goes well) send first wave of notification emails Friday”

    Check your email accounts on Friday, everyone!


  • AnB360

    I’ve seen that will not be available for Italian…why???
    Before 1vs100, then Sky, now this! Why?
    We pay the Live as the other!


  • Steve CTID

    @AnB360 – this is usually because of liscensing laws in your country, the reason you don’t get Sky is because the deal is with Sky UK for Skyplayer, so the problem there could lie with Sky TV in your country.
