    Is it possible?

    I own several movies that I would like to take with me to Apple TV without having to use Airplay. Is there a way to transfer those purchase from one ecosystem to another? Any workarounds?

    There's no reciprocity between Apple and Google.

    If they are Disney movies you could try connecting your amazon, and itunes account to Disney movies anywhere.

    You are asking Taco Bell to honor your punch card from McDonalds.

    as ohio.emt stated: If any of those movies are Disney/Marvel, you can link your Amazon and iTunes accounts to DMA. And they will transfer over to iTunes.

    That's why I don't purchase protected digital media and never will.

    As for a feasible solution, see if you can download the videos, if you can import them into iTunes (no DRM protection) then you can just go to computers on the apple TV and stream them from your computer, otherwise you'll need to look at DVD-Rs and DVD players.

    If you subscribe to a streaming service. You ARE purchasing protected digital media. Fact is, even DVDs and Blu-Ray are protected digital media.

    I wouldn't say purchasing as I don't own it but rather renting it. And while blu-ray is protected it is also easily cracked and ripped so I don't really count that but I see your point. Though i've never purchased a bluray.

    any downloadable digital content can also be cracked. People have done this with UV, iTunes etc

    I have never seen any cracked digital content out there in the scene. Either way, i'm all about my own rips and encodes. And almost no digital services stream the HD audio which is a must have for me. And i'm going to want it in h.265

    This is one of those moments where everyone should wish UV was like Disney. They place nice with everyone.
