When you got a new Amazon Kindle Fire, you may need to transfer your iTunes movies to the Kindle for watching. Here are some quick tips to help you to get it done on Mac.

Why We Need to Transfer iTunes Movies to Kindle Fire

To competite with iPad in the tablet market, Amazon has been busy in updating its Kindle Fire line in recent years. From Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD to the newest Kindle Fire HDX, all of the devices received positive reviews for the stunning features and stable performance. Thus more and more consumers intend to buy Kindle Fire when choosing a tablet. But the problem is, unlike iPad, the Amazon Kindle Fire can't play movies from iTunes due to Apple's FairPlay DRM protection which restricts iTunes movies to be played on Apple's devices only. For those who owns hundreds of movies and TV episodes saved in iTunes, they won't likely to give up the movies when they got the Kindle Fire, so they would probably seek for a solution to transfer the protected iTunes movies to Kindle Fire for playback.
