    And why not just use Netflix or buy the new movies with iTunes

    Netflix has a lot of good docus your parents will like it

    It cant get any easier than an apple tv my friend

    The iOS interface of Netflix is the best ive ever seen

    I believe YouTube rentals are only available on a computer or select Android devices.

    From YouTube:
    For movie rentals - iTunes rents movies. You can rent and watch them on the Apple TV.

    If you are looking to buy iTunes movies, you have to purchase those through iTunes on your computer and then home share them to the Apple TV.
