Why I cannot watch movies from Love film on my apple tv? The app is on my iPad and when I switch the movie from iPad to AppleTv only sound is on my TV screen and no picture.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.

     

    Love film will deliberately block AirPlay so that you are unable to watch them on the TV.

    Why would they do that? We can watch theirs movies through Wii and Xbox on TV no problem..

    Many online media providers block this - Sky and Amazon Prime do too I believe.

     

    I would have to assume that the app providers cannot offer video Airplay for contractual reasons with the movie studios though it may just be they don;t want to enable their apps to do so.

     

    It's not Apple preventing this, while you could see it would be in Apple's interest to push people to the iTunes store for media it could also drive people away.
