DLC for family account

We have the XBL family account. I am really hoping I am not expected to buy DLC for each gamertag. We bought the Undead Nightmare pack and it works fine on the main accounts but does not show up for the other accounts. On the other accounts it brings up the page to pay for it again.

if so yes they can all use it

if seperate consoles then please read the family faq



Q: If I purchase an Xbox LIVE Arcade game, does it belong to everyone in the family?

A: Purchased content such as games and movies are licensed both to the console it was purchased on, and the individual Gold member that purchased it. So if, for example, your child were to buy an Xbox LIVE Arcade game on your home console, anyone on your console can play it. Additionally, if they leave for college, they could recover their account on another Xbox 360 in their dorm room and be able to play the game when logged into their account from that Xbox 360.
