Three Major Reasons to Convert iTunes Purchased or Rented Movies to Samsung Android Phones/Tablets

1.     Movies in iTunes store are available for rental or purchase, with a price tag ranging from $2.99 to $14.99. By converting iTunes movies to Android device, the problem of unnecessary waste of money on the movies you've paid can be solved once and for all.

2.     The iTunes rentals or purchased movies have their time expiration. To be specific, you have 24 hours only to finish watching the movie after hitting the play and it will expire in 30 days and disappear even if you purchased the movie from iTunes store. So if you want to play it on your Android anytime, you will need to convert iTunes movies to Android compatible format beforehand.

3.     Music videos, TV shows and movies in iTunes store are usually saved in M4V formats that are opposite to Android. This is also one major factor causing iTunes movie playback problem on Android. But such limitation can be resolved via a program with ability to convert iTunes movies to a format playable on Android phones or tablets.
