    Discovery would be cool, and I could actually see a deal being made.
    NFL I think will happen sooner or later (my guess is on sooner).

    Definitely better channel management, though. At least folders like on iOS.

    Amazon please for crying out loud. I've been dying to get an Apple TV for the longest time and this is the only thing holding me back.

    I would like Sunday Ticket even though some of the games it won't let you watch.

    Wish DirecTV was listed as a provider for ESPN on aTV.

    Last isn't a channel but more so a feature, that the aTV could control my satellite box and I could use an Apple interface; something similar to GoogleTV where I didn't have to switch inputs to watch AppleTV content.

    My wife and I watch too many channels as it is, if they were all independent channels on aTV we would have a dozen or more rows of apps listed.

    I'm not sure the NFL would ever go for pay per game on TV.

    Never going to happen, all or nothing when it does get here.

    For merit would be NFL, Plex, and directv being an espn partner.

    1) Food Network

    2) NBC Sports Network

    3) The above plus existing ones (ESPN, HBO, Disney, etc.) available as subscription without requiring cable/satellite

    (And as a true "blue sky", some way to tap into an OTA solution, like streaming from the SiliconDust tuners - once they go native H.264 - or from Elgato's EyeTV)

    Good one. Having access to OTA HD channels would be a huge plus.

    Also, not necessarily a channel, but universal search would be wonderful. Let me tell the AppleTV what I want to watch and have the AppleTV tell me where I can watch it (sorted from free/ least expensive to most expensive).

    Just get Netflix and an Apple TV. It's much better then Amazon in any case.
