Apple TV - what can you watch on it?

Anybody have an Apple TV? How does it work and what can you watch on it? I was thinking about getting one since I love my Macbook so much, but I also have Netflix - can you watch Netflix with the Apple TV?

You can watch whatever you can buy/download through iTunes or move into iTunes. That's the catch. If it isn't in iTunes, incompatible with iTunes, or you can't convert it and have iTunes import it, no go, AppleTV doesn't want to hear about it. No Netflix, no Hulu.

Or you could get a mac mini and use something like Plex, or a number of other roll-your-own setups.
