Many satellite and cable boxes these days allow you to connect multiple TVs and watch different programming on each one. Unfortunately that isn't the case with Apple TV. You can send the video signal from your Apple TV to as many HDTVs as your HDMI splitter can handle. The caveat, however, is that you would have to watch the same content on all connected TVs. You could not have a TV in the living room watching one program while the one in the bedroom is on another.
The Apple TV does not come with Amazon Prime as a pre-installed app, which is unfortunate, as it offers a ton of content. This is only a minor inconvenience though, if you have Wi-Fi. With a Wi-Fi connection, you can open up Amazon Prime content on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Mac and stream it to your Apple TV via AirPlay.

Currently, Apple TV is mainly used to access content through apps like Hulu and Netflix, and for streaming content from your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Mac via AirPlay.
