Q: "Can I watch iTunes movies on my Sharp Smart TV? If so, how can I cast a movie from iTunes store to the TV? Anyone can help me? Thanks!" – Johnson from Quora

Sharp used to be a big brand in the TV market, but now it's not as popular as Samsung and LG. Yet, many users still love Sharp TV because of its big screens and great sound quality. Now this Japanese manufacturer has made some very interesting Sharp Q-series sets with 4K UHD, Dolby Vision, built-in Google Assistant voice control support as well as many powerful features. However, you're not allowed to watch iTunes movies on Sharp Smart TV on your couch.

If you've ever tried to copy and paste iTunes movies to your Sharp smart TV via USB drive, it will disappoint you. This is because all iTunes movies, TV shows and music videos are digital right management (DRM) protected by Apple's FairPlay technology and thus only used within Apple's own ecosystem. In other words, you can only play iTunes videos on computer with iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or TV via Apple TV. Sharp Smart TV is not within the scope. If you want to play iTunes movies on Sharp Smart TV, you have two options now. First, stream iTunes videos to Sharp Smart TV with Apple TV; and second, remove DRM protection from iTunes movies and then stream the DRM-free iTunes videos via USB. The following is the step-by-step instructions for you.
