Because the AppleTV is useless without a jailbreak! It can only play online content (via netflix, youtube and what apple provides) and as for your own media, it can ONLY play itunes media. With a jailbreak, you can install XBMC or Plex (or other options) and play any type of file you want! Makes sense doesnt it?!
