If you don't have a macbook then Roku might be a better option. Apple TV needs the files to be in mp4 format unless you mirror the screen. You can hook an external HD up to the Roku and it can play damn near any format. Roku supports HBOGO for a bunch of different cable providers.
Thanks for reply. I have a PC and I have an iPad. Then I had
a PS3 for watching downloaded movies. So just want to have that and the HBOGO use. I'm in Hawaii so we have Time Warner/Oceanic. Does Roku work with TW?
So if I dl a movie onto the iPad, I can't just watch it on the Apple TV w/o converting it to mp4? Or, are you saying I could mirror it? If so, is there anything wrong with going that route (shitty picture, etc)?
