Unlike iOS devices, phones and tablets running Windows OS are not supposed to play movies and TV shows that are legally purchased from iTunes Store due to Apple's FairPlay DRM protection. But since iTunes is the largest online media store which is offering the maximum number of digital content with HD quality in the world, most movie lovers, including Windows devices owners, have already been used to purchasing or renting movies from iTunes Store. Then here comes a common question that most Windows devices users would probably ask: "Is it possible to watch DRM-protected iTunes movies and TV shows on Windows phones or tablets?" Or let's make it this: "Is there any DRM removal tool to remove DRM from iTunes movies to Windows phones or tablets?"
