    Plus if you put other apps on it (XBMC, etc.) you can stream from Hulu, download other content, etc. with it.

    even still, given that the general consensus thinks that Apple TV is a bastard child, he has a point :rofl:

    Any cool things to do with it if you have DirectTV?

    I have an Archos 5 Android connected to my TV that will stream my media library, so it sounds like its just about the dame thing.

    i was thinking about an appletv, but i got a WDTV live instead. it plays everything i throw at it. i don't have to hack it with boxee or transcode all my videos to mp4 files to get them to play

    but appletv does have a much nicer interface and an interal hard drive
