Do you have to be signed in to use your DLC?

If so, have they said anything about what will happen after 360 XBL is shut down?

If the licenses are on your console, then no you don't have to be.

If you bought content on another system that means you did it wrong and the licenses are still on the console where the DLC was purchased.

You need to do a license transfer to access the content while you're offline.

Have you only ever purchased stuff with your account on your 360?

Ever got a new 360 at all?

Basically:

You get 2 licenses for all the content you download:

License A- attached to your profile (You can access your items on any account)
License B- attached to your console

With License A you can use your items on any 360, on the 360 that you originally "bought" the item on, you don't have to be signed into Live, on any other 360 you do have to be signed in

With License B, any profile on the original console can use the content regardless of being connected to live or not.

It's hard to describe but very simple to understand
