It does Hulu Plus, Netflix, and MLB.TV, which have a monthly charge though. It has HBO Go, requires HBO in you cable package to log in. It's not a TV tuner where you can pick up cable channels though.
Roku offers that and more though, Amazon streaming for instance, but the AppleTV integrates with your Apple products.
