A guess an App Store would deal with these things.
No plans that I'm aware of as they don't tend to announce these things in advance, but I don't see why they wouldn't add them over time. It would certainly make the AppleTV more attractive in the UK.
I think that's Apple masterplan. To slowly add more and more channels to the point were not being on there leaves the content provider at a disadvantage. This would certainly make it a viable alternative to cable/satellite for many people.
