I was really p155ed when I bought an ATV2 and found out that TV shows were not supported on the device even though they were available for Australian iTunes account holders on PC or Mac. I believe that you were able to purchase content on your Mac and stream to ATV2, but on the device there was never even a menu for TV shows like the US version. One of the reasons I bought ATV2 was the availability of TV shows, in particular, TV show rentals. Sadly the TV show rental model appears to be gone in all countries, but this morning I turned on my ATV2 and low and behold there was a new menu for TV Shows!! At least now I'll be able to stream new TV directly through the device without the need for an PC or Mac to be on.

doesn't seem to be doing much for me at the moment.
the menu has appeared but selecting "top tv shows" or "genres" gives a "your request could not be completed" message.

selecting any of the tv shows listed in the carousel, i only get preview options (same if i manually search for any tv show that have i have purchased).

in "tv networks", the only network currently listed is "aardman studios".

Same here. I'm hoping to be able to stream purchases, it will make my daughter very happy if we can.

Same in Canada! Looks like this was related to the launch of iTunes Match
