John Grubber also points out that this major update adds a “Cloud Locker” for TV Shows:

You can buy — not just rent but buy — new episodes directly from your Apple TV, and access and stream any TV show episodes you’ve previously purchased using your iTunes account. (I’m not quite sure if it has all episodes — but it’s showing me all the TV shows I can remember buying from iTunes.)

In other words, Apple just rolled out a cloud-based storage locker for TV shows

The update has also bring the Vimeo Player integration for Apple TV 2G.

Few months back at WWDC Apple introduced a new feature in iTunes which lets you Re-Download the App,Music,TV Shows and Movies which you already have purchased via Purchase Tab in iTunes.  So you can re download your Music and TV Shows and Movies directly on to your Apple TV 2G.
