Part 4: several ways to import iTunes movies into TCL TV
When you have done the DRM removal work and successfully converted the video to a format that is compatible with your TCL TV set, you can finally transfer your iTunes movies to your TCL TV for viewing. There are various ways for you to import your iTunes movies to your TCL TV based on the actual model you have. But generally speaking, there are 3 ways that are the easiest and the most practical. You can watch your iTunes movie through an HDMI cable, a USB device or using the Google Chromecast.
Using an HDMI cable is the most direct way to play a movie on your TCL TV. Most of the TCL TV models have an HDMI port. You can use an HDMI cable to connect your TV and your computer, and then play the movie on your computer but show the screen on your TV. However, using this method requires you to put your computer near the TV, and sometimes that could be inconvenient. Transferring the video from your computer to a USB device, on the other hand, is a more common way to play a movie on TCL TVs. But you need to take some time for the transferring process to finish, and that could be long if the iTunes movie file is big. Finally, you can use the Google Chromecast device, which makes the process simpler, but you have to pay extra money for the device.
No matter what approach you choose to play the iTunes movie on your TCL TV, the process wouldn’t be hard as long as you have done the DRM removal process and the format converting work properly. So once you have done all the video processing works, you can just relax and prepare to enjoy your movie night.
