Are games purchased transferrable to another xbox?

Forgive my question as I am new to xbox, from what I read liscences are transferrable to another machine in the event of a machine failure or upgrade?

So if I purchase any of the games or trial games downloaded and my xbox crashes or breaks can I transfer them to another xbox if I buy one? If the harddrive crashes and the data is not recoverable, will I be out my downloaded games?  I am trying to decide if it is better to buy the games from a retail store only, or if I will have access to re-download any purchased content from xbox market without having to re-purchase?

You can redownload anything you purchase for free from your download history. The license transfer will move the licenses to a new console if you get a new one.

If the hard drive crashes, you can just redownload the content from your download history, but you would lose your game saves.
