    This is likely a dumb question...

    Does there exist a product (or products) that are basically a hard drive that can stream to an Apple TV (or an Apple TV can pull from).

    ie. So that I could just load stuff in and Apple TV will see it like an iTunes library?

    apple tv needs a computer running iTunes to stream any media from. there are workarounds, using plex and a NAS, but its not as simple as just buying a hard drive and hitting play.

    ....yes...That's why I said "basically a hard drive that can stream to an Apple TV" and not "a hard drive I can plug in to the apple tv".

    Is there something that is basicly nothing more than an iTunes server?

    No. Anything packaged with the feature "iTunes Server" will do nothing more than show up in iTunes as a shared library.
