TunesKit iTunes DRM Video Converter Review

fast itunes drm removal

The iTunes Store is a great place to get all your video entertainment. There are over 85,000 movies for buying or renting — including blockbusters, indies, and classics. Many of us have the experience of buying or renting videos from the iTunes Store, then open the Videos app and select movies, TV shows, or videos (On iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.) or open iTunes, go to your video library, and select movies, TV shows, or videos (On Mac and PC.) You can even enjoy them on the home screen if you have an Apple TV.

All these ways requires iTunes, the Apple ID you used to buy the iTunes Video and/or specific Apple devices. It is really frustrating to view a movie we purchase or rent through the iTunes Store on other devices we own, like Android tablet or Android phone. It is the so called “FairPlay DRM”, a digital rights management system that sets restrictions on playing the iTunes videos everywhere.

The vendors tied the contents tightly to individual platforms and they assume we only have their products and we have full line of their products. We use iPhone doesn’t mean we will not use Android tablet and other smart TV other than Apple TV. They intend to adopt “FairPlay DRM” to stop those person who pirate content and distribute it for commercial or other purpose. But in fact the “FairPlay DRM” also hurts the legal user severely. I believe that buy once, play everywhere is the basic right we have. Apple also stated that:

Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer in the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks.

Not all previously purchased movies are available for downloading to your other devices.

That is to say, we have the risk of losing our purchases in the future.

That’s why we introduce TunesKit iTunes DRM Video Converter, a program that lets you strip off the digital rights management wrapped from video content that you buy or rent from the iTunes Store.
