How to Stream iTunes Movie with Roku

Roku gives you more options than Apple TV does and it continues to add new channels all the time at a much faster clip than the latter. However, Apple encoded movies are .mp4 or m4v files and they work wonderfully with the Roku BUT, and this is a big but, Apple adds DRM to movies purchased from iTunes so they only will work with Apple devices. Apple doesn't want you using Roku. They don't get any revenue from Roku. So they want you to use (translation: buy) Apple stuff instead. And they force you to, by adding their DRM. If you buy something from Apple, don't expect it to work on anything except Apple. That's their corporate philosophy. Customer lock-in. That's why so many Apples users chose Roku for their home screen and were disappointed with the fact that their iTunes movies and TV shows cannot be streamed with Roku.
