“I just received a Samsung Smart TV as 2017 Valentine’s Day gift, and I happen to have several unwatched iTunes movies, thus I am considering playing iTunes movies on Samsung Smart TV. However, iTunes videos including iTunes movies are protected by Apple’s Fairplay DRM project, which means iTunes videos cannot be directly played on other devices other than Apple’s devices. Can you give me some solutions for me to play iTunes DRM movies on Samsung Smart TV?”
Here in this post, I am going to show you three best ways to view iTunes DRM movies on Samsung TV. Check out the guide below to choose the one that best suits your own situation.

Way #2: Watch iTunes DRM Movies on Samsung Smart TV via HDMI Connection on Mac
The second way I recommend here is to make use of HDMI connection on Mac. Please take note that iMacs don’t have the HDMI connection. What I mean here is MacBook, in other words, Mac laptop. It is easy to view iTunes DRM movies on Samsung Smart TV via HDMI connection on MacBook. Check out the guide below.
- Firstly, authorize your Mac laptop to play the iTunes movies;
- Secondly, connect your Mac laptop to the Samsung Smart TV via HDMI connection;
- Thirdly, start to play the DRM-protected iTunes movies on your Mac laptop so that you can watch them on Samsung Smart TV simultaneously.
Way #3: Watch iTunes Movies on Samsung Smart TV via Apple TV
Here is the third way for you to stream iTunes DRM videos including iTunes movies and iTunes TV shows to other TV sets (Samsung Smart TV included). Apple TV offers a good solution for streaming iTunes videos to Samsung Smart TV. Connect the Samsung Smart TV with your Apple TV, then play the iTunes movies using AirPlay. Then the iTunes movie content will be shown on the Smart TV with original quality. See? It is very easy with the help of Apple TV.
However, plese note that there are some HD rental movies cannot be played on Apple TV neither due to Apple’s DRM protection. Such being the case, you are suggested to use the first method to convert videos from iTunes to Samsung Smart TV for smoothly playing iTunes video on Samsung Smart TV.
Those three methods mentioned above can perfectly show you how to play iTunes videos on Samsung Smart TV. You can choose your preferred one to watch iTunes videos on Samsung Smart TV: converting iTunes M4V video to Samsung Smart TV, via HDMI connection, or streaming iTunes videos to Samsung Smart TV with Apple TV.
