Xbox One How can I play split screen w/ my kids? (XBox 1)

    3 years ago I bought an Xbox One for my kids for Christmas. Then I bought 2 extra controllers and Terraria because we all love to play together. This roughly cost about $400.
    For the life of me we cannot figure out how to play Terraria on the Xbox one together.
    For three years we have been trying to play Terraria together on the Xbox one but we cannot figure it out. So we're stuck with 360 if we want to play together but the 360 does not have updates anymore. So my kids cannot enjoy Terraria the Xbox One, all they can do is sit there and watch me play... This is pathetic.
    I am begging for someone to help us.
    Please reply with step-by-step instructions for how we can play Terraria together on the Xbox One, local, split screen.
    We only have one Xbox Live account, and I am not buying two more accounts just so that we can play one game together.
    This is ridiculous. All we should need to do is turn on the game turn on all the controllers and play.
    Again, to repeat:
    We are playing on the Xbox One.
    We want to play multiplayer, split screen, local.
    We only have one Xbox Live account.
    We are not buying two more Xbox Live accounts so that we can play multiplayer Terraria together.
    How can we play multiplayer Terraria on the Xbox One local split screen?

    Turn on all the controllers and sign each into the appropriate profile.
    Start Terraria
    Choose single player
    Whoever is joining in needs to push the A button instead of start like on 360

    FYI on a side note if you have the account with Live set the xbox as its "home xbox" then all profiles on that xbox will have access to xbox live services.

    They do have profiles, but I don't think I added them that way through the settings. I'll do that next and then report back. Thanks a bunch!

    I think he means they have accounts from the 360 but he hasn't added them to the xbox one yet
