You should be able to get Achievements and/or a small discount to Live for watching ads.

i.e if you watch 25+ ads within a month, $2 (rather, the equivalent number of MS ponits) would be added to your account.

I still don't understand how I can log in to free services like PSN and Steam and see not a single ad yet a paid service like Live uses ads...

Why do they have ads? For money, not to give it away. They make you pay for a feature available for free on other systems, give you ads and have extortionate prices on the marketplace; you really expect them to give the users money? You're just an insignificant mouse in MS' wheel, each ad gets them money. It's disgusting the way they treat loyal, paying customers. I will never support MS.

The lack of respect that MS has for its users is astounding.

"Xbox Live users may not be thrilled with the presence of more ads on the popular online service, but thelolresults have been very encouraging for Microsoft and the company has indicated that it intends to ramp up its video advertising on Xbox Live."

I;m not bothered by the ads. I just log on and go where I need to. If it's an ad that I like i'll watch it.

Whatever helps generate cash flow, besides the one square in every corner of a page does not bother me.

I don't have a 360 but that would bother me a lot, consider that I would already be paying them annually (cash flow) for their service. Now for Silver members I can totally understand the ads overload!

It may bother people not all, this is no different than what cable ,networks or radio station are doing they sell timeslots ,airtime so on.

@above
Why would u pay for cable ,networks or radio station
When you can get them free?! Don't tell me there in better quality,

Good one onyoursistersback, I haven't paid for cable or satellite in 2+ years and I never miss a show or movie I really want to watch (not that there's much modern TV that's worth watching). Also, I haven't seen a commercial or ad in the same time frame.

My big issue with XBL ads is that they don't put that money back into games for their customers they just pay content providers for more media content and turning into a internet cable box. M$ use to have some good 360 exclusives, but now only has 3 AAA exclusive franchises and a few indie ones.

Ads don't bother me as long as I don't have to hear them. '

EDIT: I didn't realize Nu ads was launched?
