Impact of deleting Xbox LIVE account

Dear community,

I have read here it is not possible to transfert content from one account to another as licences are linked to the console. 

So, I have several accounts on my Xbox and I used a specific one to buy all dlc and xbox live arcade games. Does it means I can freely delete this account without risking any licence loss ?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

oh, and there is no way to transfer dlc, microsoft points, or content licenses from one account to another. in rare cases xbox support may transfer a subscription to another account.

you can delete your accounts off of your console and redownload them anytime. all the licenses of the content that the primary gt has purchased and downloaded. all other gt's should be able to access the dlc still even though the gt that originally purchased and downloaded the content is not on the console anymore.

make sure that whenever you delete a profile off a console to delete the profile only, DO NOT select delete profile and selected items because it will delete your saved games.

the only way to delete the gt and account from the xbox servers is to contact xbox customer support.

hope this answers your question.

If you delete the gamertag/account on your Xbox, you can re-download it at any time, without any impact on your licenses. You wont be able to use the purchased content once the account is no longer there, so I'd be careful about how you go about things.

Best bet is to move the gamertag onto a USB device, and plug it in when required.

Hope this helps!
