Q: I bought a movie from itunes and want to watch it on my Sony Bravia TV. I have the adapter and everything is plugged in but i can not get a picture on my TV. What do i need to do to have the picture come through? The first time I connect the TV with my Macbook Pro, then I click to play the movie, the Sony Bravia TV acted like it can play it, but soon I got a black screen. Is there any special settings needed? Or is the Sony TV compatible with iTunes content?

Why We Can't Watch iTunes Purchased/Rented Movies on Sony Bravia TV?

Sony Bravia TV is a newly released powerful smart TV. You can stream beautiful video from your favorite sites like Netflix, YouTube and HuluPlus with built-in Wi-Fi5. Or you can also connect your mobile phones which is using compatible Android OS, then stream the content from Android phones to Sony Bravia TV. By adopting leading technologies, Sony Bravia TV can provide you with 4K ultra HD resolution for watching TV. It upscales all of your existing sports, TV shows and even YouTube clips with the 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine.

But why we can't watch any iTunes downloaded video with such a powerful smart TV directly?

The problem is DRM protection. All movies/TV show episodes purchased or rented from iTunes store are strictly DRM protected by Apple's Fairplay DRM protection. We can only watch the iTunes movies with Apple's products, like iTunes, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, iTouch etc. But here I want to walk you through on how to stream iTunes DRMed videos to Sony Bravia TV step by step.
