Living in the future, rant version

So I bought a movie on Amazon and downloaded it to my ipad, so I could watch it on the TV, because that's how I stream Netflix, and it's the easiest thing to do. Problem? Amazon videos won't export to external devices. They claim it's a rights thing.

FINE. I'll buy a movie on iTunes. I've watched iTunes episodes on the TV without problems. Oh, but not PROTECTED movies. Those won't go out, via my Apple-brand HDMI converter, to the TV. Because rights.

Seriously, I just want to watch the stupid movie that I've legally bought on the stupid TV from my iPad. WHY SO HARD?!

I buy the SD version, and hook up my laptop (now my Surface tablet) to my TV as a second or duplicate monitor (haven't tried the tablet yet as I need a new cable). I watch on my computer while working most of the time but it is extremely rant-worthy when stuff you legally own you can't access. I even have Plex which I can stream videos from my pc to my phone and xbox which is hooked up my tv, but again, iTunes blocks streaming. I also hate book publishers that refuse to publish ebooks outside of America. Or they DRM them to a specific format. Hello, I haz money, I being all legal and stuff!
