Rolocule is a developer team who have been showing a lot of Apple TV love.

This not only resulted in a new genre of games as Motion Gaming but also added a health and exercise component to gaming.
At the Time Warner annual investor meeting, Richard Plepler, the CEO of HBO, announced that the company will launch a standalone HBO streaming service in 2015, enabling HBO fans to finally cut the cord. And according to analysts, this might be the break the set-top box industry, especially the Apple TV, has been waiting for.
