Question: I have bought some tv series and movies from iTunes. I can watch them on my iMac and also on my iPad. The problem is we recently bought a smart tv and want to watch these programs on it. For some reason these are locked and I cannot do this. Is there a way that I can gain access to this?
Quick answer: Sure, you can do it. If you have purchased or rented videos from iTunes store, the thing becomes a bit complex. You probably don't know that most of purchased video clips and music from iTunes store are locked by Apple's FairPlay DRM protection and can't play on non-Apple devices. It means you can't play purchased iTunes contents on your TV without conversion. Then a professional iTunes to TV Converter may help you solve this problem.
It's a common sense that all iTunes movies/tv shows rented or bought are DRM protected and are limited to play or edit. So if we plan to transfer the Apple TV rented iTunes HD movies to our home theater system, we have to bypass the iTunes DRM protection at first.

Step 1 Install and launch iTunes to TV Converter. Click "Add" button to import iTunes movie to the program. Or you can simply drag & drop the iTunes M4V movies to the program.
