    Anyone else having an issue trying to play an iTunes purchased HD movie on a big screen TV?

    In what way? Via airplay, cable from an Apple TV?

    Using a MacBook Pro and a HDMI cable. Some type of copy protection.

    Your display must support HDCP (copy protection). I'm pretty sure the studios require this of Apple.

    Why don't they let you know that before you purchase a movie. What displays have HDCP?

    Well, it is pretty universal. It applies to Blu-Ray players, iTunes, you name it. I expect that every TV made in the past decade supports HDCP. If your display is relatively new, you might just have a bad cable.
