Mac guys copy Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 mainly for three factors:

Firstly, Blu-ray Discs are easy to break, but a digital copy is safe and permanent, even if the data get lost, there’re ways to recover. 

Secondly, ripping Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 on Mac will protect the expensive Blu-ray Discs from scratches and wore out– do you think you’ll still hunt for a movie in hundreds of DVDs and BDs while you can easily find and play the movie on the bed with a remote control in hand? 

Thirdly, ripping Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 solves the problem of BD region code restriction. Commercial Blu-ray Discs could be Region A, B and C, and not a BD player will read full region Blu-ray Discs. Things happen that your BD player refuse to read the BD you BD purchased from oversea market (unauthorized region). After ripping BD to Apple TV 3, you get unprotected HD contents, which can be copied to media players as long as the codec is supported. 

There you have it! Enjoy your Blu-ray Movies on Apple TV 3 in full HD with AC3 pass through on Mac. Have a good time!
