There has been significant interest lately about how to stream the 2012 Summer Games to the Apple TV. In short, because the Apple TV does not yet support third party apps, there is no direct way to accomplish this but there are other ways to make it happen.
AirPlay is Apple's method of sharing media through streaming. Certain iPad apps natively support streaming to the Apple TV. For example, with AirPlay turned on in the iPad, if the Safari browser is in the process streaming video, that video will be sent to the Apple TV. This streaming has been of very high quality in my experience.
