Introduction

Getting a new credit or debit card and leaving your Xbox Live account linked to the old card can result in you getting disconnected from the Xbox Live service when your subscription is up for renewal. You can prevent this from happening by proactively changing the credit or debit card your Xbox Live subscription gets billed to. You can make this change by navigating to the Xbox Live website on any Web browser.

The Xbox Live service was rolled out by Microsoft in November 2002.
