Transfer and Play Amazon Instant Video (WMV) on Microsoft Surface RT

In the following article you can learn about how to legally get rid of DRM copy protection from Amazon WMV to freely play on Microsoft Surface RT anywhere you like.
Surface sports a 10.6-inch screen, it came up with a truly elegant device that has a slightly bigger screen than an iPad (16×9 ratio for you movie geeks out there) and weighs about the same. With a larger and satisfying definition screen, Microsoft Surface RT is also a perfect portable video player for you to enjoy movies.

Now you want to put some Amazon Instant Videos to Surface RT? Wait a minute. The Amazon Instant videos, though mainly .wmv format, are not supported by Surface RT. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Windows tablet. To get the Amazon WMV playable on Surface RT, you'll have to remove the DRM protection first.

To transfer Amazon WMV movies to Surface RT, you need a powerful Amazon WMV video DRM removal or a WMV video Recorder for Surface RT. Pavtube ChewTune is exactly the ideal tool that makes it possible to watch Amazon DRM-protected WMV videos on Surface RT.
