Before the iTunes 12.6 was launched, you can only watch a rented movie on the device that the rental originated from instead of watching it anywhere else. Now Apple has finally making it easy to watch movies rentals across you devices. The iTunes 12.6 and now iTunes 12.7 comes with a new viewing feature called "rent once, watch anywhere" which allows you to rent a movie through an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and watch it on any of the mentioned devices later.


But, don't get too excited. There are still many improvements need to be done with iTunes videos and movies. For example, you are still not able to play purchased or rented iTunes movies, TV shows, music videos, etc. on unauthorized devices or players. What's worse, iTunes rental movies would disappear after 48 hours when you start watching.


If you want to make purchased or rented iTunes M4V videos available on any device (especially the non-Apple device) without time-period limitation, then an iTunes Video Converter is needed to convert iTunes M4V video to popular MP4 format.
