You can buy DLC with a silver account, though I'm not sure if certain DLC are exclusive to gold-only or anything like that...I know the Deal of the Weeks are gold-only though, so you're not entitled to discounts and such.

I used to buy Guitar Hero DLC using my friend's internet connection back when I didn't have a wireless adapter, so you should be fine as long as you have the Microsoft points.

You can download DLC just fine with a Silver Account works the same as Live Arcade titles :) as mentioned already you won't get the Deal of The Week prices but other then that Microsoft is all for taking your money ;)

I don't think so? Don't take my word for it though, I may be thinking of Game Demos...

You can get any DLC on a silver account, except for ones that are gold only.
Same with arcade games, demos and other stuff not gold exclusive.

You can download anything on a Silver account that isn't Gold-exclusive.

The only exception to this is free stuff; you have to wait exactly a week from it's release date to download it.

If you download gold exclusive content like this: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/games/offers/033f0001-0000-4000-8000-0000534307f6?cid=SLink while on gold and revert back to silver. Once you become silver and try to download a gold exclusive item, you may get an error stating that you must upgrade to gold to acquire this item.

However, it already appears in your purchase history, which you can use to download it on a silver account. No need to sign up for gold again, unless you want to.

I never knew you had to wait on free things. All I know is that you don't get deal of the week stuff, which made me cry.
