Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program

 

 

I am happy to announce that we’re doing an Xbox 360 System Update Preview program for our next release, and the opportunity to sign up is now available. The Preview Program will give you the chance to check out ESPN on Xbox LIVE, Zune music, Netflix search, the new Xbox LIVE dashboard, and new updates to Zune video and Family Settings on your Xbox 360*.  Much like we did last year, 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 complete the survey that is presented to you, the Connect site will notify you immediately if you’ve been accepted.  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 is not for Kinect. You will not be receiving a Kinect sensor if you are chosen to participate.
•This opportunity is open to all Xbox LIVE Members in regions where Xbox LIVE is available.
•To avoid any problems, read the survey carefully and double check all the information your provide.
•While both Xbox LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up, Priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.

I’ll be sure to updated this post if the program fills up.

Sign up for the Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program

Good luck!

*Not all features are available in all Xbox LIVE regions. Netflix subscription required to use Netflix features. An ISP that supports ESPN 3 is required to use ESPN features. Xbox LIVE Gold Account required to use some features

Update: We have as many people as we need right now, and registration is now closed. If we need any more, I’ll make a post.

    WOAH… the ESPN3 features are only available to people that can already get it on their computer (through their ISP)??? So it really is just no different from what PlayOn users can do right now? I was really hoping that the big “partnership” meant that ESPN3 would be available to all XBox Live subscribers (in the US) – not just people that already have ESPN3. What a letdown.

    So, what WAS the Live price hike for?

    I got in but I seemed to forget to type in my Gamertag during the survey. Is that going to be a problem? Thanks Major for letting us know!

    Dear Microsoft, I pay for Xbox Live, why am I forced to view the Spotlight channel AKA the Ad channel when I connect?

    Accepted. Sweet. (For some reason I had to register, even though I registered for the last beta. It also said someone else was using the screen-name I wanted, Bionic92. Hmm…) So will we get the update in a week or two?

    So, if I’m understanding this right, if you are already in the Kinect Preview Program, you DON’T need to sign up for this?

    @Supreme Entity:
    If you’re in the Kinect Beta there is no reason for you to sign up.
    By the way, is that background for your avatar from the beta?

    So this new dash is the reason why Micro$uck had to discontinue XBOX Live for the original XBOX? = How lame! Micro$uck lied when they talked about their games being able to play online for as long as Xbox Live is around. Micro$uck is pathetic!

    Did anyone say that this is the reason why original Xbox support was dropped? No need to jump to conclusions.
