How to Watch iTunes DRM M4V Movies on Panasonic TV

Panasonic was originally well known for its plasma TV, which has incomparable color quality, contrast, wide viewing angle, brightness, offering ultimate home theatre experience. Then due to the rapid change of the TV market and serious price competition, Panasonic had decided to discontinue the plasma TV and start to change to focus on the high-end LCD, LED, OLED smart TVs such as Viera TV, etc. These new TVs also have similar features and extra advantages like comfortable view and power consumption saving technology. They are particularly great for users who spend long time watching kinds of TVs online. However, they still have a small defect that there is not a built-in app for iTunes, one of the largest online media stores, so it is kind of difficult to for iTunes users to enjoy iTunes movies on Panasonic TV set. Hence, I will try to demonstrate an effective solution to easily transfer iTunes videos to Panasonic TV here.

Part 1. Unleash the Power of Panasonic TV to Play iTunes Videos

The iTunes movies are the digital media files created for iOS devices like iPhone, iPad and iPod only so that iTunes customers could stay in Apple's ecosystem forever. Therefore, iTunes app is not approved to integrate to any other media devices or players. Even more, they also add the FairPlay DRM encoding to the videos to stop illegal distribution for iTunes videos. So you can't play iTunes movies or TV shows on Panasonic or other devices directly but only cast iTunes videos from Apple devices using an HDMI cable, Bluetooth, etc.

This does work well somehow by casting, but it is not so convenient as we may not have such an Apple device available all the time. Is there another way to liberate all the DRM restrictions and play iTunes movies on Panasonic TV? The answer is positive. By using an intelligent DRM software like DRmare iTunes to Panasonic TV Converter, you can easily take away the DRM encryption from the iTunes purchased and rental movies in order to do whatever you want to the iTunes videos on any devices.
