You can watch a full-size iTunes video on your computer’s second display.

When you download a video to your computer from the iTunes Store, such as the latest episode in your favorite TV show or a new movie, you might want to watch it in full-screen mode on a second monitor connected to your computer. For example, you could have some applications open on your computer's main screen that you want to be able to see, while enjoying the full screen video without any application windows covering it on another display. You can easily watch the video with Apple's free iTunes application on your computer's second monitor.
