Using a proxy wont allow you to get that DLC, as your account is still set up for your country that you currently live in.
You would have to create a new account for the country that it is available in, but that is against the TOS as your using false information to connect to Xbox Live
They can detect what country your account says you live in and also what country you actually live in by a simple IP trace (which most likely happens automatically every time you connect and is logged) so is a cause for a ban, and people have been banned for it.
Using a proxy on your original account will also show a difference between the IP trace country and your account country and is a warrant for a ban.
However, combine the two and you should be fine, just dont expect to be downloading the DLC at full speed.
Thanks for replying, I'm on live since launch with a US account (my country is not even listed as an option
and the proxy I was thinking to use is also a US proxy, so both should be fine BUT the question is if M$ has a black list of proxy servers.... and what happens if they see me starting to show up on the US (according to the IP) they should remember my last location in their DB (which is out of US)....
Then another question is.. what is worse... "popping" with the US IP for occasional DLC download and playing on live with my own country IP... Or Constantly using the Proxy server and appeared to have moved to the US....
This is why I'm locking for people who actually used this method before....
Could not find anyone in any forum who has a proxy experience.
