I can stream movies from my WATCH TCM app on my iPhone and iPad, and I'm wondering if I can watch them on my tv with Apple TV.

No. TCM's iOS app only let's you steam the audio to your Apple TV and to do that you have to trick it by setting the output to Apple TV using an app that supports Air Play and then switching back to the TCN app. I put in a suggestion to TCM that they support Air Play and hopefully many others will do the same.

I have also requested that TCM make Watch TCM available via Airplay. Amazing how small that ipad screen is!

I have been wondering the same thiing. Bought my Appletv to do just that but am unable to get it to mirror on my tv and have been looking for answers all over. Guess I will have to go into the Apple store to see if anyone there has an answer

Technically the Watch TCM app is only available for iPhone and iPad or via a regular web browser, for now. However, if you have Apple TV and also subscribe to a cable/satellite provider that is participating in the service (I have DirecTV), then you can use your Apple device to log on and then screen share with your TV via Apple TV. It works, but it would indeed be great to have the app brought directly over to Apple TV. [Hello, Apple TV developers?]
