Out of the box, not flexible enough. Jailbreak it (easy), stick XBMC etc. on it and your away.
Then you can stream HD movies from a PC over the network (wired or at least homeplugs are best) watch tv on it, use stuff like flashsportstreams on it, get your tv catchup stuff on it etc..
Also you have the handy AirPlay functionality to wirelessly stream pictures/music/videos from iOS devices.
For the price, spot on.

No need to do this, install XBMC and/or atv flash and your set.
