Apple TV, I'm so confused

So, the wife is contemplating shutting off our U-Verse TV. We have a smart TV so I'm thinking as long as we have internet we'll be okay.

Looking at Apple TV, I'm not sure how it works. Will I need an Apple TV unit for each TV?

Also have a Bose Lifestyle Theater system, will I be able to run Apple TV thrugh the Bose?

She figures between Hulu Plus etc, she'll be able to watch the majority of her programs. Our main TV is a Vizio smart TV, the other is HD Toshiba.

Any suggestions/input/feedback is greatly appreciated.

Yes you will need an ATV for each TV. You should be able to run the ATV with the Bose system.

Can't you you watch hulu plus and stuff like that through the smart tv? Seems like apple tv might be overkill, if so.

that is correct. The apple tv is a great solution for cable cutters who only want to access content through netflix, hulu plus, and iTunes.

Just make sure that you get an Appletv2 if you are thinking about trying to jailbreak it to access XBMC, Navi-x, or other sources that are only available if you are jailbroken. Appletv3 can not be jb'd yet.

Probably not looking to j/b the device. I have enough trouble trying to use stuff as intended!
