I jailbroke my Apple TV 1 a couple years ago, but I don't have any need to jailbreak my Apple TV 2. You can play all video formats on it without jailbreaking and don't need to use iTunes since we now have Air Play. You'll just need the Air Video app on your phone.

More information on the reasons to jailbreak an Apple TV 2 are listed at the bottom of this link (Plex, NitoTV weather and RSS app, web browser and XBMC media server capabilities):

Hmm. I might have to check this out. Do you have real-time access to Showtime and AMC? If not, how current are the TV shows?
