How can I keep iTunes Rentals forever?
I’m going to have a trip so I want to watch the movies and TV shows I rented from iTunes store during the time on the train. But all the rental iTunes M4V videos are protected by the DRM. Is there a legal way for me to enjoy iTunes rentals on my PC or other devices without any time limitations or DRM protection? Can I record my iTunes rentals so I could keep them forever?
We know the movies and TV-shows we rented from the iTunes store have time limitations.
