Adding DLC to another gamertag on my console

I have a gamertag and my wife has one (on just one console).  I accidentally bought Dead Island DLC on my profile, but it's for my wife.  Do I have to buy the DLC again, even though we use the same Xbox?

A little licensing 101! :)

 

You have two licenses - one for your profile and one for the console you bought it on.

 

All other profiles can use the content on the same console (exceptions include: avatar items and certain season passes).

 

As the purchasing profile, your profile can use it on any console, as long as you are connect to LIVE.

 

If you change console and your wife needs to access the DLC, just preform a license transfer and everything will be okay.
