    Mm

    Mm...for ATV-specific apps, click on the app store on your ATV.

    Search the web for lists of good ATV apps.

    Try Gods of Egpyt (free game).

    If this will be the mode of access, then will other TV companies do the same with their smart TV offerings, like Sony or LG?

    That would make the Apple TV physical cube obsolete then. But maybe we can now use the USB slot for physical addons like it used to be before the new iterations.

    ^ with the iTunes app on those TVs, you can only watch iTunes-bought/rented content. Other streaming apps (e.g., Prime) aren't there... unless those apps are also available stand-alone on the TV. Also, Apple TV games and other apps (e.g., weather) won't be there as well.

    So there's still room for the Apple TV box.
