Xbox 360 gamers are separated into two tiers -- Silver and Gold. Gold members can play online, receive special discounts on downloadable games and use services such as Netflix for a monthly or yearly fee. Silver, or free, members do not have these options.. When you create a new account on your Xbox 360, you are given a free 30 day trial of Xbox Live Gold. Only the new account will have access to the 30 day trial.
