Can you download a digital copy from the DVD Combo pack onto a Kindle fire?

You know how when you buy a DVD combo pack it comes with a digital copy.

That digital copy seems to be ties to iTunes.

Can you download that on a Kindle fire?

I don't think so.

I think it depends on the actual format of the file in question.
There's a VLC-neon APK file out there that you can install on the Fire that'll play some video files, but I think those iTunes Digital Copies are DRM'ed so only Apple products/software can play them.

As SomethingMore pointed out, the iTunes "digital copies" have DRM that restricts them to iTunes and Apple devices.

However, there are other formats for Digital Copies. For example, the new Ultraviolet digital copy system can be played back on Android devices, including the Kindle Fire, using the free Flixster app.

PocketBlu is another digital copy format that will work on Android devices:

Many DCs can be downloaded as Windows files instead of iTunes but I don't think that'll help you either.
