Cool. HBO Go is really the only channel I use on my Roku that I miss when I'm in the Apple TV room. I have been using Airplay for it for a while now but that is my main TV room so this will be much more convenient.

Was just reading up on the WatchESPN for AppleTV and there is a catch to it. From their FAQ section:

[h=3]Who will be able to access WatchESPN content on Apple TV?[/h]Apple TV users with a WatchESPN affiliated video provider must authenticate to gain access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU and ESPN Buzzer Beater/Goal Line.
Apple TV users who do not subscribe to an affiliated video provider will have access to video on demand clips only.
[h=3]Will there be an additional subscription fee for WatchESPN content on the Apple TV?[/h]No, WatchESPN on Apple TV is free to access for all users. All users will have access to the VOD clips in front of the wall. Users who receive their video subscription from an affiliated service provider will have access to authenticated live programming and events.
[h=3]Will Monday Night Football be available on Apple TV?[/h]Yes, Monday Night Football will be available to subscribers via authentication. On other platforms, MNF is only available via online and WatchESPN on iPads, NOT on phones or Android tablets currently.
[h=3]Will there be blackouts on Apple TV?[/h]Yes, as with television, blackouts will apply to telecasts that have been sold regionally or locally per league, conference and local rights holder agreements. WatchESPN on Apple TV will not have device blackouts or additional blackouts specific to Apple TV devices.
