    Netflix and Amazon both have a better selection.

    Better hurry! They are being discontinued, unless you want a Zune HD soon you'll be out of luck!

    I've been surprised that Apple doesn't make that link, in both ways, very clearly. Perhaps they're waiting to get their media strategy together.

    I mean - why not build a dock with IR port, so that the iPod Touch or iPhone can be placed in the dock and immediately offer the AppleTV interface on the TV. Local music & video, youtube, streamed content from iTunes, whatever... it could be quite an easy introduction to the AppleTV.
