Is there a simple way to watch an iTunes download on my TV set?

I just canceled my cable and bought a Roku box (AKA The Netflix Player). I'm set up for Netflix and Amazon downloads. There's just one problem: some of the shows I want to watch -- notably new episodes of Lost -- don't seem to be available. I can get Lost on iTunes, but then it's on my computer and I'd rather watch it on my TV. My computer and my TV are at opposite ends of the house.

Presume I know nothing about how any of this works. Some details that may or may not be useful: the computer is an iMac. We have an Airport and everything is wireless. I don't mind paying for my downloads -- that's not the issue. I have an older, half-broken Powerbook that could be involved somehow (can I hook it up to my TV?), and also a Series 1, coal-powered Tivo that isn't being used (we don't have a land line for it to call the mothership).
