iPad will be the best movie-watching device on the go due to its high definition display and large storage. That's why the release of new iPad 2017 hit the market. Rumor said that the new iPad 2017 will be cheaper than iPad Pro and maybe the cheapest iPad so that everyone can afford an iPad. You can download TV Shows and movies from iTunes or transfer some local videos to new iPad 2017 then watch them when travelling to kill the time on the car/airplane. But sometimes the media in one format won't play on the new iPad 2017 you want to watch it on. Such is the case with Blu-ray discs and the new iPad 2017.
As we all know, iTunes controls what content is synced to your new iPad 2017 and iTunes can't sync Blu-ray discs into your new iPad 2017 media library. This means it's effectively impossible to watch Blu-ray movies and TV shows on your new iPad (2017) unless you make your Blu-ray discs in an iTunes playable video format such as M4V, MP4, MOV. Fortunately, it is easy to change Blu-ray to iTunes format for new iPad 2017 playback. To begin the process, you have something to prepare.
