Anyone find non-apple devices that can run an app into your iTunes account and play movies to a TV? I have an Apple network (vault, ipads, iphones, MacBook airs, etc). I also have one apple tv box connected to each of four TVs... I am scrapping my cable for Tivo Roamio/mini or something similar with OTA antenna inputs (Roku, etc) and want to scrap the AppleTV boxes, but have easy access to my huge movie collection on iTunes with ease at each TV.
Hmmm, wondered the same as mentioned below. Looks like iTunes will be loosing market share! If they don''t change the system, and retro past customers, there are many BETTER services !!
Still ridiculous that Apple goes to such lengths to prevent legitimate customers from enjoying the content that they have paid for. The only real solution to Apple's horrible setup is to rent and buy elsewhere.
#2 doesn't address the error message that one gets when simply plugging computer or iPad into the TV: "you are not authorised to watch this movie on this display," the DRM issue, needing an HCDP tv or Apple TV, etc. Does #2 work for anyone, when iTunes-purchased movies are the movies in question?
How come I can watch and control YouTube videos between my iPad and my smart tv/blue-ray player by using a activation code but Apple can not do the same for the iTunes Store? It would be great to pick a song/movie from my iPad and watch it on my tv!! Either that or send me a blue ray disk/cd when I purchase a movie/album from iTunes so that I am able watch/listen to it everywhere! You can purchase a disk at from a store that has a DVD/blue-ray/digital copy, so why not sell those directly from iTunes before Amazon realizes it and takes all of iTunes customers.
Yeah, um, that is why they sell the cables
If you want to connect your Desktop or Laptop to your Plasma TV or LCD TV or HDTV?You have to purchased from any local store that sells consumer electronics. 
if you have iphone4s you just connect the apple ipad hdmi cable in to your iphone4s to hdtv and it works well no cydia apps no jail break it just works!!
