Best known as one of the world’s greatest video game consoles, Sony PlayStation 4, or PS4, is also an ideal media device to play movies through home HDTV. However, among the supported media formats by Sony PS4, you’ll find there’s no M4V format, a commonly used format by iTunes movies and TV shows. So what if you need to watch iTunes M4V movies on your TV via PS4? Well, you need to figure out another important reason why PS4 doesn’t support playing iTunes movies. In fact, that’s because of DRM protection adopted by Apple to the iTunes M4V movies and TV shows. Due to the DRM lock, iTunes M4V videos can only be recognised and played well by Apple’s own devices, such as iPhone, iPad, etc. Non-Apple devices are not allowed to play any iTunes movie directly, including Sony’s PS4 and others. In this case, if you need to watch iTunes movies on PS4 without DRM restriction, you’ll have to get rid of the DRM at first place.
