Game add-ons

If you are on the family plan, why can't you use the map pack add-ons on different consoles at the same time? I want to play the add-ons with my son while he is on his console.

if you buy the addon yourself

only the purchasing console can use the content offline on all profiles or the purchasing gamertag can use it if connected online at all times

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.
