Can i share xbox live downloadable content?

Found 5th Apr 2010
Hi i have bought the stimulus pack for modern warfare 2 but i was wondering whether i can share this with my friend so he doesn't have to pay for it so that we can both use it?

Can i do this as i know you can do this on the ps3 with add ons and games?

Simple answer is No. You may be able to sign into X-box live from his X-box and download it to his console, but the moment you sign out from his console, he will not be able to use the add on.

You can. If you go on xbox.com after recovering it on his console, and click download again, he can download and use it. Although I haven't tested it, I hear it works.

The content can only be used on the initial console it is downloaded onto, any users on that console can use it, but not on another console

There you, 3 totally different answers, take your pick!

Just try it on his after you have downloaded it.

You can use downloadable content on another console I just did it with some expansions we have 2 xboxs HOWEVER only under the tag to which it's assigned.

This has been my experience as per the 1st response.

You can, but the console has to be signed into Xbox Live under the account that purchased it otherwise it will play as just a demo.

You can transfer the content to another console ie. You buy a new console, but this you can only do once every 12 months.

But if your talking transfering to a JTag'd console, then there's no restrictions. :thumbsup:

Ok so license transfer definately works, just did it with a mate and we were both playing MW2 new maps at the same time. Note you can only do this once a year....

1) find a friend that has the wanted dlc.
2) ask him to send you his account info. (pass and email)
3)recover his account.
4) go ]here
5) sign in on his account.
6) hover you mouse over the support tab then click license transfer in the drop down menu.
7)follow the on screen step until you see finish.
on the xbox press the guide button. go to the tab furthest right and click account management.
9) click download history.
download the wanted dlc and your done.
