    so i have a jailbroken apple tv 2 and i haven't really updated it at all in 3-4 years. i mainly use icefilms for movies. how do "channels" work as far as access is concerned? i have fios extreme cable so i have EVERY channel except PPV and porn. do i have to pay for hbo, showtime, abc, etc on apple tv to watch content through it, i plan on buying the new apple tv and putting the jailbroken on in my bedroom? i noticed in the apple store yesterday, there is a Disney channel were you can pick shows and watch them. is that free? would be a huge plus for my kids.

    Several of the channels want to validate your cable provider such as ESPN Watch app. But once they validate, all content is free (or denied I guess). Channels like HBO and netflix need to be subscribed.

    There is an app store now so Plex will make an appearance as I am sure a plethora of RAID box provider apps.
