Play and watch iTunes movies on Roku

 

Roku can stream paid and free content from Internet to your TV. It allows users to watch Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Video and others on your TV, but it can’t stream iTunes. According to the Roku support website (https://support.roku.com/en-ca/article/208754908-how-to-use-roku-media-player-to -play-your-videos-music-and-photos) Roku Media Player is a channel that allows you to play locally stored H.264/AVC (.MKV, .MP4, .MOV) video files.
