buy yourself ATV2, Jailbreak it ( very easy process and it is all over the net) Then install XBMC and tada, you will have a zillion of videos, movies and tv series. ATV3 sucks since it is not jailbreakable yet,
Cant you mirror onto tv??? See from another review:
My Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player also offered 1080p and unlike Apple TV offers Amazon Prime Instant Video as a channel. Why then has my Apply TV suddenly jumped out front?
The answer is Mountain Lion a/k/a OSX 10.8.
Mountain Lion has a feature called AirPlay mirroring which streams anything on your Mac to your Apple TV. Anything means anything-movies, documents, web sites. At 1080p the resolution is amazing. Your big screen LCD will suddenly become the biggest monitor in the world. And since Amazon Instant Video plays on a Mac. that Amazon content is now available.
