Using Cloud Storage to Download a Game Out of the US

Hello, I recently redeemed a code for a digital copy of Halo Reach, I live in Costa Rica so I asked my cousin, who lives in the US, to redeem it for me since that's the only way of redeeming it. Once he did, I tried downloading it again but even though my Xbox Live account is set to the US, the download just keeps ending up corrupted due to my geographical location. So what if I asked my cousin to go on to my account, download Halo Reach on his console, then put in on the cloud storage and then I download it here in Costa Rica from the cloud storage! Wouldn't that work? Let me know if it does, or let me know if you have a better solution, thanks! :)

No that would not work. Cloud storage only has enough space for game saves and will not hold an entire game.

Not unless you take your console to the US and download it there.

It could work. Although you should know that letting anyone else access your account is against the code of conduct so it would put your account at risk of being banned.
