Microsoft is set to release the newest iteration of its Xbox Live service via system update relatively soon. However, If you're just too eager to wait then why not fill out a short form and see if you can get in on it all earlier?
Via a post on his "blog", Microsoft's Major Nelson revealed the preview program and a few of its requisites. For starters, he clarifires that this preview program isn't for Kinect, and in no way, shape, or form does Microsoft owe you a sensor bar.
Also, You need to have acces to ESPN to use the Xbox ESPN service. Zune music, a new Netflix interface, improved audio chat (however, beta participants can't chat with non beta users due to codec incompatibilityies), and a sleeker Dashboard are also part of the deal. Gold members have priority, though Silver members are considered as well.
I just applied, and got in. They will roll out the preview soon, and we'll let you know how it goes.
