I also have a PC connected to a TV, and I use it primarily for playing TV shows and movies. But I can totally see how an AppleTV-like device would be preferred my many, rather than having to use a PC to control media.
Our latest TV has a lot of that functionality built into it. It's got YouTube, NetFlix, Hulu and Vudu apps built into it and can stream directly from a media server without the additional AppleTV or PC connection.
It's really very smartly done. And, it's just a midline Vizio set I bought at BJ's, nothing top of the line, by any means.
