dunno if this is of use to anyone here.
I jb'd mine last year and just spoofed it to 6.2 which added a pantload of chans.
PBS amongst them, which is what I was looking for.
The only other thing I use is Radio (not to be confused with iTunes Radio).

Yes, mine came out of the box with PBS. Amazon Prime would be worth a jailbreak.

Wags, Gute, that isn't a thread about jailbreaking to add channels. Instead, one small problem with being jailbroken is newer firmwares can break the jailbreak, but if you don't run the software update, you can't get these newer, officially released channels. I gather people have found a way to spoof Apple TV versions so they can get these newer officially released channels.

Doubt it will happen. XBMC used to have a repo with Amazon access, but then Amazon added DRM to the streams and broke access. You need to have an iOS device or Mac and then AirPlay Amazon over to the Apple TV.

Thanks Fritz for the thread. If I still had my 2nd gen Apple TV, this would have been a great help.

I broke mine to sell for XBMC. But as you see, I haven't gotten around to it.
I could sell the ATV2 and get 2 ATV3s.
ah well.

Thanks for the info.

I have an ATV2 that can no longer run the latest iOS, I may go ahead and post on our merchant board,

I was very disappointed that Amazon blocked prime streaming for XBMC - I had it on my Raspberry Pi.
