December 2014 iTunes movie new releases can't play via Roku?

Will Roku 3 play December 2014 iTunes movie new releases? Yes. This article is a tutorail on how to stream iTunes movies to play on Roku 3 by roll off the DRM protection.

Roku 3 can allows users both to stream video content from the Internet and play movies locally through a USB drive, but the problem is that the supported media file formats are limited. Unlike Apple TV 3 which can access iTunes movies, we can't install iTunes on RoKu 3, let alone playing December 2014 iTunes movie new release like Gone Girl, Jingle All the Way 2, The Good Lie, The Hero of Color City, Frank, etc. on Roku 3 through USB. Why?

Roku has the USB channel that can play back videos attached to the USB port. You could copy videos (1080P, 720P or lower resolution) onto a hard drive or keychain drive and attach them to the USB port on the Roku XDS. But keep in mind a USB port enables local media playback (supported formats include: MP4 (H.264) & MKV (H.264) video / AAC & MP3 audio / JPG & PNG image) to play on Roku 3.
