Nexus 7 and iTunes

I have a:
Nexus 7
iPad2
iPhone 4S

Because of my heavy iOS dependency, I use iTunes. That's not going to change. But I love my Nexus 7. I already have my music on Google Play using Music Manager. Is there a way to stream my iTunes movies/TV shows to the Nexus 7? I know I can move the files to the Nexus, but is there any way to stream while on my home network?

I know you're locked into iTunes, but I'm pretty sure streaming / sharing from iTunes to Android is pretty much a no go. I have an iPad and an Android phone and use Subsonic ( »www.subsonic.org/ ) to stream across my local network and the Internet to all of my devices as well as browsers. It works great.

I have even streamed music to my car via my phone. There are clients for all the major OSes, although they might cost a few bucks, but it's typically a one-time deal.

I'm sorry to go OT, but I also have a Nexus 7, and have all of my music on my iMac in iTunes. Each music file is an .m4a.

I want to put all of my music (about 10GB) on my Nexus 7 so that I can play it. I haven't had the time to research everything about the Nexus 7, but can 'Music Manager' accomplish this? Does 'Music Manager' come with the N7? Thanks.

You might find some luck with a DLNA based approach.

Interesting. I've been thinking about ripping my dvds and blu rays to a hard drive. I'm tired of the clutter the cases make. I'll have to check into subsonic.

Actually I never said I bought anything. As it is, I have no problem with playing my music and video on the Nexus. I was just looking for a way to stream without having to put the videos on the tablet.

To everyone else, thanks for the suggestions.

As the majority of my Itunes music is DRM free, all I had to do was connect my Nexus 7 to my PC, and copy music from my Itunes folder to my Nexus 7 music folder.
You could try it that way.

Thanks Snakeoil. I'll try connecting the N7 to my iMac and see if I can transfer and play the songs.
