How to watch iTunes DRM movies and TV shows on PS4?

Streaming video apps on PS4 include Netflix, Amazon Video, POP, PlayStation Video, TV From Sky, Now TV, etc. However, many people ask is it possible to watch iTunes movies with PS4. The answer is yes. Here we will show you 2 ways to watch iTunes movies on PS4.

Option 1 Use MoviesAnywhere and YouTube app

If you are in U.S., Go to MoviesAnywhere.com and link your iTunes account and your Google Play account together. Then download the YouTube app (or Amazon Prime Video and Vudu) on your console, sign into it with the same Google account you linked on Movies Anywhere and search the iTunes movies you bought.

Note: only Disney, WB, Sony Pictures, Universal, and 20th Century Fox movies can be brought over. TV shows are not transferable between accounts.

Option 2 Use PS4 Media Player

PlayStation 4 Media Player allows you to play video files from an external storage device, such as a USB stick or external harddrive. PS4 supports popular video formats like MP4, AVI, MKV, etc., but have you ever found that you can’t transfer movies and TV shows purchased or rented from iTunes on PS4? This is because movies and TV shows from iTunes are in M4V format and protected with Apple’s Fairplay DRM. You can only watch these movies and TV shows on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, Mac and PC with the same Apple ID.

However, if we can remove DRM from iTunes movies and TV shows and convert M4V to MP4 , we can definitely play them anywhere we want including PS4. Here I will recommend Ondesoft iTunes DRM Media Converter . This iTunes DRM removal software enables you to easily remove DRM from iTunes movies and TV shows, purchased or rented.
