It happens frequently that people purchase or rent movies and TV shows from iTunes Store to play on computer, iPhone, iPad and iPod. But they are not allowed to transfer them to any other devices since iTunes purchased or rental items can only be displayed on iOS devices only. What's more, for people who would like to play iTunes movies on Home theater system like a projector, this cannot be done because iTunes movies and TV shows are strictly protected by Apple FairPlay, which limits iTunes from playing on other non-Apple devices.
