    basically if its free to get then its DRM free, if your charged its not

    DRM = Digital Rights Management

    I wouldn't say that. Lots of them cost money but are DRM free. Examples would be walking dead series.

    What does DRM free mean to me?

    Basically as far as your average gamer knows DRM free means you can download it on your USB (or hard drive) vie computer if you know how and put it on your xbox and play without needing to purchase or otherwise obtain the content through means that requires something of value to you (money or task to obtain a code). The content does not need to be set to a profile to work. Just download plug in and use.

    Why is some content DRM free and some not?

    Content that can be installed from a DVD to your hard drive is often if not always DRM free. This is because Xbox Live has no way of tracking who has paid for the disc to install the content or not. So they cannot possibly determine weather you obtained it legitimate or not. Other content that is DRM free is stuff that is often free or stuff that comes pre loaded on your xbox when you bought it,

    Hope this brief explanation of what DRM free content is helps you with what you are seeking.
