    Why would anyone pay for itunes rental when you could just get hulu plus and pay $10 a month and watch allot of tv shows as many times as you want? If you use itunes rental you would pay more then $10 if you watch more then 10 shows. So Hulu Plus is a better option. I have netflix and Hulu Plus so I'm never going to rent from itunes because it really isn't cheaper. Maybe apple should do a subscription service and charge monthly so you can watch all the shows you want without paying 99 cent each show. what do you think?

    Not everything is on Hulu +, I think the content is even less than what you can rent via iTunes.

    That works if you have a HTPC or are ok with watching shows on your computer/laptop. Otherwise, if you want TV shows on your big screen, and don't have a HTPC, you do it the "old fashioned way" or you're out of luck.

    Apple TV is for people who don't want to connect a PC to their TV. Jobs said so in his presentation.

    I currently use Hulu Plus through my Samsung C6900 Bluray player. Works very well and the HD quality is acceptable. No computer needed.

    Combine that with the new Apple TV, the wife and I are ready to cut cable for good.
