Making My Movies more Easily Accessible with Apple Tv

tvOS & Apple TV Apps
I've ripped several movies into iTunes. I know I can't store them in the cloud with iTunes Match, but is there another way I can store them in the cloud so that I can easily access them with my Apple Tv, without having to have a computer on that's running iTunes? I'd want about 25 gigabytes of storeage. Could I do this for, say, $10 or less per month? Thanks!
I don't think there is a way for you to put those movies into iCloud, because they're ripped and not purchased from itunes. If they're mp3 files, you actually may be able to use iTunes match, but you might have to buy more cloud storage space. If you're wanting a cloud solution, iCloud is the only option, I'm just not sure how feasible it is to get those movies there. You have another option, however, if you're willing to use something other than the cloud. If you have home sharing turned on in the apple tv and iTunes settings, and both your computer and apple tv are on and connected to the same wi-fi network, you can access your iTunes library with your apple tv, provided your computer is turned on and iTunes is running. Doing this, you could access those movies, without having to use the cloud, or purchase space.
Actually you don't need to buy any more space once you have purchased iTunes match. You can store up to 25000 songs in there, wich can be accessed then from different sources, including apple tvs. I would also suggest home sharing here, as it is the bést solution, when not moving.
