    Silver Live is free though you can only play Online on certain days and other features (Marketplace) are restricted. Gold Live is available for a free 1 month on an Xbox which has got the NXE and never had live. I think the free live you may have heard about was of the Gold Trial, I don't think M$ would make free live which makes heaps of money.

    Uh, what? If you pay for a year, then you get a year of Live.

    Also, I think if you made a hotmail/windows live account with a US address, then you'd get a month of free Live.

    It doesn't have to be a US address, I got my free month with an AU hotmail account.

    When you create a new gamertag, the walkthrough asks you if you want to try out Xbox Live Gold for 1 month for free on that new account. Xbox is a little lenient on this, as I've seen friends get close to 2 months of time on that new user free trial at times.

    When you buy a 1 year subscription of Xbox Live in certain places, it often includes an extra month for free (13 months in total), such as this product.

    each 360 only has 3 1-month trials limited to it
    one for every new account

    once you created 3 accounts and used the 1 months trial, you cannot get any more trials on that system even if you create another account
