I disagree. The app is going on modern TV's. The older TV's will be relegated to an actual expensive-for-what-it-is ATV or a less expensive dongle-like device imo. Remember, Apple is reportedly trying to launch a monthly TV subscription service. A less expensive dongle allows for a possible wider audience than an ATV would provide. I'd bet Apple wants as many people as possible signing up for their service... whether they have new equipment or not... an ATV or not.
