Posted to M4V Converter Plus Tutorials by David Rogers on May 29, 2018


When Apple released Apple Music Android app for Android mobile users, some iTunes users using Android devices thought that Apple might release an movie app for Android users to enjoy iTunes movies. So far, the surmise never came true. If you have purchased some movies on iTunes Store and want to enjoy them on your Android mobile phone or tablet, you will encounter the compatible problem caused by DRM protection on the iTunes movies. The only solution to bypass the DRM protection is to use an iTunes to Android converter called M4V Converter Plus.

iTunes Movies Can't Be Watched on Android Devices

The release of Apple Music Android app made the Android mobile users able to enjoy Apple's streaming music services on all kinds of Android mobile phones with Android 4.3 or later. For this reason, some people expected an iTunes app on Android to allow them to buy and enjoy movies on Android devices, however, it's only a daydream. As of May 2018, there is no iTunes app for Android, and movies and TV shows purchased on iTunes Store can be only viewed on PC, Mac and iOS devices including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Technically speaking, authorizing Apple ID on Android devices is not an infeasible thing because Apple Music is also DRM protected and Android users can authorize their Apple ID on Android mobile phones to enjoy Apple Music tracks. The only reason is that Apple wants to keep a closed ecosystem to sell more iOS devices and multimedia contents.

Nowadays, it's a common thing that someone or a family owns multiple devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Kindle Fire, Android phones and tablets like Samsung Galaxy tab, Huawei MediaPad M3/M5, etc. It would be an annoying thing that you can't enjoy your purchased iTunes movies and TV shows on all your owned devices including Android phones and tablets.

iTunes Movies on Android

Please note that some Android devices support playback of unprotected *.m4v movies directly, but all free and paid iTunes movies, TV shows and music videos in *.m4v format are DRM protected and can't be recognized by Non-Apple devices.
