The movies and TV shows purchased from iTunes Store are under the protection of FairPlay, Apple’s implementation of DRM (Digital Rights Management). That means you can only play iTunes TV episodes, movies, and music videos with Apple devices like iPad, iPhone and iPod. The iTunes videos are not playable in non-Apple devices like Android phone and tablet. However, if you’d really like to put your own iTunes videos onto a non-Apple device for playing, you can turn to a DRM removal software tool which is able to remove DRM from iTunes and convert iTunes video from M4V to MP4. Then you can feel free to transfer the converted DRM free MP4 video files to your device.
