[Summary]: Why can’t we directly stream iTunes movies on Android smart TV? Check out this tutorial and find the best way to play iTunes movies and TV shows on Android TV by getting rid of DRM protection.
"Good morning, I bought an iTunes movie from the iTunes store and planned to play it on my Sharp Android TV, but I was just told that my Android TV can't read these resources. What should I do to sync and play iTunes contents on Android TV?”
Android TVs, including Vizio Smart TV, Panasonic Viera Smart TV, Sony Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV and Sharp TV, are excellent devices that integrate streaming video, listening to music and playing games. However, if you plan to play iTunes videos on the Android TV mentioned above, then you are out of luck. Apple uses DRM technology in iTunes movies to protect copyrights. These protected contents can only be played on authorized devices, so you can't directly stream iTunes movies to Android TV.
As long as your iTunes movie is still in DRM-protected M4V format, you can never watch iTunes movies and TV shows on Android TV. On the other hand, if you can get rid of the DRM restrictions of iTunes videos, especially converting iTunes movies to video formats supported by Android TV, you can watch iTunes movies on Android TV at any time.
Next we will introduce a one-stop solution for converting iTunes movies to Android Smart TVs. UkeySoft M4V Converter is such an efficient tool that empowers you to remove DRM protection and convert iTunes M4V rentals and purchases videos to universal MP4 files with high quality in 30X faster speed. In addition, it is capable of retaining the original subtitles, audio tracks, AC3 5.1 surround sound and converted HD resolution of MP4 video.
By removing DRM from iTunes movies, you can not only play them on Android TVs, but also Android phones and tablets, Windows phones, MP4 players, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, or any computer without authorization.
