    Upgraded to 4.3 and upgraded the ATV2... so what websites allow you to stream video & audio via AirPlay?

    If I go to CNN or ESPN via the iPad I thought I would be able to stream right to ATV2 or am I mistaken?

    The websites have to enable AirPlay on their end, by default it is turned off. As a user this isn't great but I suppose the publisher should have some control over how their content is displayed.

    If you want a website to support AirPlay you're going to have to ask for it. Don't accept a "it's too complicated" answer either, turning AirPlay on is trivially easy.

    Edit: There is also a workaround; check out this bookmarklet that will enable AirPlay on any HTML5 video tag.
