    Can you play TV seasons purchased from iTunes on an Xbox 360? I know you can stream it wirelessly, but my g/f doesn't have wireless internet and we're trying to purchase Ugly Betty :)

    So let's say I:
    buy the season from iTunes
    Upload the episodes to a firewire 800/USB drive
    Conect the drive to an Xbox 360 via USB

    Will this work?

    Nope, as far as I know anything purchased from the itunes store doesn't work on the xbox 360 and that includes wireless streaming content. Sorry. Maybe someone has a more advance solution for you.

    And you can't burn purchased videos from iTunes onto DVDs, right?

    Why aren't iPods or iTunes' videos compatible with the 360? Is it really a compatibility issue, or is it because they're two competing companies???

    Almost everything you buy from the iTunes Store is encrypted, and will only work with Apple authenticated software/hardware.
