The app is useless, still can't believe they dedicated the home button on the remote to this junk
What app? The first time you used the remapped home button there was a pop up on it and instructions on how to change it back. Did you just ignore that and went straight to complaining?

Better because Apple is involved?

Have to support Apple?

Embracing "the future of television"?

Using more of the wired broadband data tier you've paid for?

all ;)

More seriously: there's some utility here for multi-TV households where the owner doesn't want to lease a box for every TV. Hook up an :apple:TV to those TVs and you can watch some stuff without having a cable box.

What is the point of adding said cable channels to the Apple TV, when one can tune directly to the channel with the tv (and has to have the channel available with the cable provider)? What am I missing?
Of if you don't want to have to switch between boxes and inputs on your TV. This way you can stay in the AppleTV with other apps, versus switching inputs, and going to your cable box.
