very hard to stump up the gold fee and pay for a low quality video stream just doesn,t make sense,you are losing the custom right there

but............ you have a choice.. you dont have to buy gold live.... the 360 is soo much cheaper..

add $50 a year to every 360.. so a 360 bought for $400 (released price) owned for 5 years comes out to $650 (you do your own math for cheaper models and less years owned)
