I can't see a good reason to jailbreak the New Apple TV.. Any video that you want I just google it watch it for free and AirPlay.. What more is there?

Put the Apple TV on eBay and get a Roku and an Android TV box. Wait for the Apple TV 5 to come out if you and you will have three of the best streamers to do everything.

For the people ask for what you need a jailbreak Without Jailbreak you have to reinstall your apps every 3month because the developer certficate just useable for 3 month, so you can decide if you need a jailbreak or not. All configuration has to be done again and again in the case dont jailbreak
