How to Stream iTunes M4V Video to TV with Roku 3?

"When it comes to popular media streamer, I will immediately think of Roku 3 streaming box. The Roku 3 seriously changes the way of accessing my favorite videos from more than 1,000 online channels, like Netflix, Amazon Instant, YouTube and more. Its distinctive cross-platform search feature enables me to get any content from multifarious media folder with a tile or keyword. A more humanized design is the built-in headphone jack, which can mute my TV automatically when I am listening to avoid disturbing others.

However, all of these features are beside when comparing with the USB channel. It lets me play local videos on big TV with the USB port. But a question is that no movie or TV show downloaded from iTunes store can be played successfully with Roku 3. I’m really pleased with the functions of Roku 3 media streamer other than this problem."
