    If you want Netflix etc, then yes you'll need the world wide webs.

    If you already have media on your laptop in iTunes and want to play it on TV, it's a snap.

    Just make sure you have Home Sharing turned on both machines with your same Apple ID and the media will show up over your network on TV.

    Make sure your machines are on the same network (either Airport or hard wired CAT 5) and your ATV is plugged into your TV with an HDMI cable and you should be good.
