How to Watch 1080p/720p iTunes HD Movies/Episodes on HDTV?

Posted by Andy Miller on September 02, 2014 10:05:35 AM.

Q: I have downloaded a few HD movies and episodes from iTunes store. There are both 1080P and 720P videos included. But how can I watch these HD iTunes content on my HDTV and take full advantage of the HD quality of the file itself?

For many common movies or TV show episodes, you can watch them on HDTV directly via HDMI port or DVI plug. Or you can steam the common movies or other videos via WD TV live and watch the movies on HDTV. However, as far as I know, the iTunes downloaded videos are all encrypted by Fairplay DRM protection. We can't watch iTunes purchased movies/TV shows on HDTV directly via the HDMI or DVI or WDTV Live, because they can't read the movie licenses. To play the iTunes content on HDTV smoothly and keep the original HD quality, we have to find an iTunes DRM cracker at first, like TunesKit DRM Media Converter for Mac.
