When switching from iPhone to Android, many people may want to transfer iTunes movies to Google Play and then sync them to the newest Android phone, such as Samsung Galaxy S8, Huawei P10 and LG G6.
However, you will fail to upload iTunes movies and TV shows to Google Play. And there are two reasons for the failure:
1. All iTunes movies are DRM protected, which means that you can only play them on authorized Apple devices. Google Play or Android phone is not included.
2. Right now, Google does not allow you to upload your own movies or videos for access in the cloud. Its Play Movies app solely functions as a movie rental service.
So, is there any solution to watch iTunes movies on Android devices or store iTunes movies in Google Play?
Yes, just keep reading.

Google Play VS. iTunes Store
As we know, iTunes almost has the largest stores- more than 28 million songs and 45 thousand purchased movies, while Google Play is comparatively smaller. Although the charges for iTunes would be higher, it is quality-guaranteed. iTunes surpasses Google Play in music, movies, and TV show, while Google Play has the world's largest e-book resources - over 5 million titles.
