Q: Is it possible to watch iTunes movies and TV shows on LG phone? I once tested an LG G7 on an LG retail shop and had a really good impression of it. It has AI-powered camera, loud 'Boombox' speaker and bright 6.1-inch LCD display. And the latest LG G8 feels the same was officially announced on February 24, 2019.
So I am thinking about switching from iPhone to LG G7/G8. Before I do that, I want to make sure my purchased iTunes movies can still be played well on such an Android smart phone. And ideas how to do that?
When switching phones, digital media files are most important because you have invested much on them before. Sometimes it can be difficult to do that. For example, you will encounter some obstacles on dealing with digital media files, like iTunes movies and TV shows. Since there is no iTunes app for Android, you are not able to sync iTunes videos to the G7/G8. For your convenience, I will introduce an effective workaround to make iTunes videos playable on LG smart phones.
Part 1. Can We Watch iTunes Movies on LG G7/G8 ThinQ
Both LG G7/G8 are good for mobile phone addicts. The LG G7 was released on May 31, 2018 in UK, June 1 in the US and June 7 in Australia. Powered by the Snapdragon 845 chip and Android Oreo, LG G7 ThinQ comes with 6.1-inch QHD+ resolution and 3000mAh battery, the 4GB of RAM, and the 64GB of internal storage in its normal configuration. Though 1 year has past, it is still a powerful phone. The LG G8 has similar features but the price is much higher as it is newly released in 2019.
With these amazing and wonderful features, there is no doubt that the G7/G8 could be the No.1 choice to play videos for great watching experience. But just like other Android phones, LG G7/G8 can't support movies and TV shows purchased from iTunes store due to FairPlay DRM technology and different video formats. Even if you transfer iTunes purchases and rentals to the LG G7/G8 via USB cable, it can’t recognize imported iTunes movies and TV shows directly.
Part 2. Best Solution to Play iTunes M4V Videos on LG G8
One-stop iTunes DRM M4V Converter
Apple applied FairPlay DRM technology in M4V videos purchased and rented from iTunes, which prevent iTunes users from enjoying iTunes movies and TV shows on Android phones, like LG G8, HTC U11, Samsung Galaxy S9, etc.
As a result, in order to make iTunes videos available for LG G8 ThinQ and other Android devices, you have to get rid of DRM lock from iTunes videos with the third-party iTunes DRM removal software, like DRmare M4V Converter for Mac/Windows.
It is one of the most professional iTunes DRM M4V converters that can remove DRM protection from both iTunes purchases and rentals with lossless quality preserved and convert DRM M4V to unprotected MP4 and other G8 compatible video formats at 30X faster speed.
