Apple TV Movie Purchases and DRM

Hi,

I am about to get an tv and I have some questions about the DRM of bought movies.

If I burn the film onto a dvd and play it on another machine I guess that the DRM will kickin and not let me watch it?

However, if I burn this onto a dvd and try and watch it on another of my authorised machines will that work?

I hope that makes sense

D

You can only burn as a Data Disc which isn't playable on anything else.

thanks northy - I have seen you posting in some other tv threads

So do you know how I would be able to transfer this to another one of my authorized computers then? I have only ever had one main account really

thanks

Use a flash drive or external hard drive?

There are a variety of ways to transfer content between computers. Flash drives, as has been pointed out, or wired or wireless drag and drop, and yes you can burn the file to a data DVD then drag and drop the file from that to another computer.

Keep in mind that you can authorize up to 5 computers to play your purchased content, whether audio or video.

Regards,
Michael
