FairPlay is built into the QuickTime multimedia software and used by the iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV, iTunes, and iTunes Store and the App Store. Users will encounter Fairplay DRM technology when they buy iTunes movies/TV shows, Apps or even eBooks from iTunes store. Also, Apple Music is FairPlay DRM protected.

• Can't play iTunes movies on other video players like Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player, etc.
• Can't stream iTunes movies, TV show, music, etc. to PS4, PS3, Chromecast, Roku, etc.
• Can't read the DRM-protected iBooks on common e-readers, like Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc.

do you need an internet connection to use the fire stick


Hi Delores,

The short answer is: Yes, internet access is required.

The device (and those like it including Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, etc.) contains no programs, movies, audio, etc. Rather, it is a wifi network interface device pre-loaded with sites (and similar) and has the ability to receive signals from the remote to navigate between these site. The selected site is presented via the A/V or HDMI output jacks and cables and are optimized for display on your television.

I hope this helps!
