Usage rights for iTunes Store purchases

Movies, TV shows, and certain other items purchased from the iTunes Store are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM). These protected purchases can be:

  • Played on up to five authorized computers

  • Synced with your iPod, iPhone, or iPad

  • Synced with or streamed to your Apple TV

All songs offered by the iTunes Store now come without DRM protection. These DRM-free songs, called iTunes Plus, have no usage restrictions and feature high-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding.

If you have older iTunes Store purchases that are now available as iTunes Plus downloads, you may upgrade your existing purchases. To do so, visit the iTunes Store and follow the onscreen instructions.
