    If I buy a tv show or a movie on itunes does it have DRM? Can I watch it on another PC or burn it onto a dvd to watch on a seperate player?

    Is there any restrictions with bought movies or tv shows?

    No. If you purchase a TV show or Movie from the iTunes Store, then you cannot burn it as a viewable file, just as a backup. Also, the only way you can watch it on another PC is if it has iTunes and your iTunes Store account is authorised on that particular PC.

    Yes, all video (except a few select music videos) have Apple's FairPlay DRM. You can watch on up to 5 computers, and an unlimited number of video-capable iPods.

    You are not permitted to burn any video to a video DVD.

    You might find the iTunes Store terms of service useful.
