Stream DRM-ed Thanksgiving Movies from iTunes to HDTV
If you have already purchased or rented those popular Thanksgiving movies from iTunes, you may need to sync them to your HDTV for watching with the whole family in the Turkey Day. But streaming movies from iTunes is not as easy as you can imagine. You would probably be told that iTunes movies and TV shows are not supported by your HDTV system while you are trying to transferring the Thanksgiving movies from iTunes to television. That's because all iTunes movies are encrypted with Apple's DRM technology which doesn't allow you to play any iTunes movies on non-Apple-approved devices. So if that's your case and you don't want to pay an extra fee to buy an Apple TV in order to stream the iTunes movies to HDTV, TunesKit iTunes DRM Video Converter (Mac & Windows) could get you out of the trap by easily removing the FairPlay DRM protection from both rented and purchased iTunes movies, TV episodes and music videos while converting the DRM'd M4V files to non-DRM MP4 supported by most of the existing media players, including any model of HDTV with 100% original image quality(even 1080p HD movies), audio tracks(Dolby 5.1 surround sound) and multi-language subtitles kept.
