Hi,

Since buying my Xbox One secondhand around 1 year ago I've had access to Xbox Live Gold even though I've never bought a subscription. It was later I found out that the previous owner must be sharing with this console still.

My question is, if I buy a new Xbox One S is there any way I can transfer this over myself or will I lose this privilege? I'd love to buy the new console but if I means I will then have to buy Xbox Live Gold each year I think I'll leave it.

Thanks in advance.

No you cannot, you will need the previous owners email address and password to have the same privileges as your old xbox one

I see, I thought that may be the case but I thought I'd ask on the off chance that I could somehow just migrat the data over and I would keep everything. Thanks for your help.

One more question if I may. Is there any way I can tell how long their gold subscription is for?

I am still a little confused as to how I have these privileges since there are no other accounts on this console. I assume perhaps this console I have was set as a home console however they removed their profile before selling?

Best thing to do is call Microsoft and ask them.

Only way to find out is to access the account from previous owner, I wouldn't call Microsoft as they may remove these privileges as they wouldn't want you getting the for free now, you can get a 12 month sub for around £30

I don't think that's wise just in case, I'd rather not lose my privileges. My Gold subscription ran out in late 2015.

Thanks again. Yeah I don't plan on calling them. I don't remember who I bought the console from to be honest so I guess I will have to leave and stick with this one.
