What are you using to play the 1080p iTunes movies?

Suggestions are:
Apple TV - a box that enables your iTunes library that your computer hosts to be utilized on your TV through an HDMI port.
Laptop / Media PC - a computer with access to your iTunes library that is plugged into your TV's HDMI port.
iPad / iPhone - if you have the 1080p video on the device you might be able to cast it to a smart TV.

From what I have seen there is no app on a smart TV that allows this type of streaming. Mostly because the movies are encrypted and need iTunes or an Apple device to decrypt.

I have used the second suggestion successfully, and have family that uses the first suggestion all the time.

The third suggestion should work, this is how some of my family streams Netflix, though we have not tried with an iTunes Movie. I am not a fan of this because it uses storage on the iPhone / iPad, plus battery to stream.

Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
