I've also experimented with the distro called Raspbmc for installing the XBMC platform on the Raspberry Pi.  This is a multimedia software package that allows for all sorts of content to be viewed on a TV.  The main sections are Weather, Pictures, Videos and Music.  The key thing to note is that almost any type of media can be viewed and/or listened to using this platform.  For instance I was able to view various episodes of TWiT and Ham Nation this evening along with various ham repeaters (yes, many clubs are streaming their repeater audio on the Internet).  So if you have a spare TV, why not plug it in to a Raspberry Pi?!
