Tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Apple all have their own compelling living room devices, but Roku remains most people’s favorite overall streaming platform. If you want to settle on Roku, you need to figure out the two mainstream streamers of Roku: Roku 3 and Roku Streaming Stick.
Roku 3: The best overall choice
Roku Streaming Stick: Value packed
As stated above, both Roku 3 and Roku Streaming Stick cannot mirror iTunes videos to TV due to the DRM Protection. To stream both iTunes purchases and rentals freely to Roku, the first thing you should do is to remove DRM protection and convert iTunes M4V videos to regular formats supported by Roku.
M4VGear iTunes to Roku Converter (Windows/ Mac Version) is a powerful yet professional DRM removal tool which can strip the DRM protection from both iTunes rentals and purchases, thus to convert the locked M4V movies and TV Shows to DRM-Free MP4 format supported by Roku with Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and 100% lossless quality preserved.
