This is a contradiction in terms. Settle that internally before continuing.

I gave you the link. Just click it. And you can get to the link without leaving the forums in the first place.

Yeah, I'll just go ahead and use these apps and… whoops! I have a remote with 7 (9) physical, hardware buttons! I cannot possibly ever use any of these apps designed for a TOUCHSCREEN.
Right in the name: Apple TEE-VEE. Any apps (Channels) for it would be video-specific content. There could easily be an official The Weather Channel Channel showing a live stream of the broadcast channel that also has an interactive local setup therein. Instead of just a uselessly simple image like this:
on the screen for just a few seconds, you could select any of these days and see hourlies, percentages, and such. You could edit the radar maps to show whatever you wanted, local or regional…

But the straight up App Store? That's what AirPlay is for.
