The releasement of Surface RT & Pro has showed the determination that Microsoft longed to go into the mobile internet field, but these two tablets haven't gained enough users after announcement - if compared to the number of Android tablets and iPad. At the same time, Microsoft said users shouldn't expect a version of Apple's iTunes that's been specialized for Windows 8's new Metro interface "anytime soon." Though if you've been paying attention to the battle between the two companies, it should come as no surprise that Apple's dragging its feet. So, you can't use the iTunes on any of Windows 8 devices including Surface Pro.
How to View iTunes videos on Surface Pro?
As we have mentioned above, iTunes can't be used on Surface Pro for the moment. But how can we manage to enjoy movies, TV shows and music on Surface Pro that stored in iTunes library? Can those videos and music files be exported and transferred to Surface Pro?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. Media contents which are sold on iTunes store have DRM protections which prevent you from copying or transferring the DRM protected contents to other devices except Apple's devices like iPad, iPod, iPhone, etc. So, if you have bought a Surface Pro runs Windows 8 OS, it may be a trouble for you to play iTunes movie on Surface Pro. Then, you will realize the reason why we need to remove DRM.
