With the development of liquid crystal technology, the multifarious display systems which have a powerful function come forth in our daily life, especially LCD TV. Nowadays people pay more and more attention to the function demand for LCD TV. In such a big trend, many LCD TV brands were born and smart LCD TV became more and more popular around the world. Sony Bravia TV is one of those brands and it is also one of the most famous brands in the LCD TV market.
But nothing is absolutely perfect, just like all the LCD TV products, Sony Bravia TV can't do anything either. Recently I have found some feedback on the Internet complain that they can't stream iTunes Videos to Sony Bravia TV, which bothers some Apple users a lot. Here comes the question, how to stream iTunes movies or videos to Sony Bravia TV? Today in this post, I will help you to solve this problem.
First of all, we need to figure out why iTunes videos can't stream on Sony Bravia TV. In the next part I will tell you the reason.
Part 1: Know about Sony Bravia TV
BRAVIA is a brand of Sony Visual Products Inc., it is the abbreviation of "Best Resolution Audio Visual Integrated Architecture". In May 2015 Sony lunched their first Bravia TV which allowed users to enjoy the service such as watching videos on YouTube, playing games with Google Play as well as install some Android apps on Bravia TV.
After so many years of improvement and development, Sony Bravia TV has become the top three smart LCD TV brands in the world, which can play not only TV shows but also the online videos and movies. What's more, you can even stream your videos from mobile devices to Sony Bravia TV so that you can enjoy your videos on Bravia TV.
However that doesn't mean all the videos can be steamed to Sony Bravia TV. According to Sony official website, we can learn that Sony Bravia TV support to play MPEG, MTS, M2TS, and MP4 formats through USB. So if your videos are in the right format, they should be playable on you Bravia. If not, you have to convert your videos to additional formats supported by Sony Bravia TV.
Unfortunately, iTunes videos are almost in M4V format, which is not included in the Bravia supported formats list. If you are an Apple user you must not be strange to M4V, a video container format developed by Apple and is very similar to the MP4 format, which is optionally protected by DRM copy protection. That is the reason why we can't stream iTunes videos to Sony Bravia TV directly.

So you may ask me is there any method or video converter can help to solve this problem. I promise that it has some methods to convert iTunes videos to other formats supported by Bravia TV.
Take into consideration the majority of these worries are Apple users, I think Leawo TunesCopy is the best and most convenient one to do this job.
