Playing iTunes Purchased M4V Videos on Microsoft Surface 2

Microsoft released Windows RT tablets Surface 2 and Surface RT in 2013 and 2012. These two tablets all have very good performance in battery life, large touchscreen display, large storage capacity, nice video playback quality, etc. And these features make them very good devices for watching movies on them. However, these Microsoft Windows RT tablets Surface 2 and Surface RT don’t support iTunes installation, which are not like its Windows 8 tablets Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2. So you can’t purchase and play iTunes movies or TV Shows directly from Surface 2 or RT. Then you may wanna try to transfer the iTunes purchases from your computer to your Windows RT tablets for watching. But you will be disappointed.
