    OK so here is the problem, my wife and I each have a windows phone 8 nokia lumia 920. We also have an xbox 360, the xbox and 2 windows phones all have different microsoft ids/xbox live logins) if i could just log in with a different account on smartglass i could then use it with my xbox. but i can't so apparently all three have to be the same microsoft id, which means all the contacts would be the same on each and that i would have to rebuy and redownload every app/xbox live game i have purchased on the 3 different systems. so i would lose lots of money and valuable time, this seems like a huge oversight, i bought into the windows phone ecosystem, but if microsoft plans on having families with 5 windows phones, they should really make it easier to connect to one xbox.

    Yeah this is annoying, they don't think like that. Only my account is gold so I have Netflix and all the apps on it

    Content purchased on an Xbox is accessible to ANY accounts on that same Xbox. So you and your family could ALL have different Live IDs and access that content.
