+1 conduit, the most futureproof solution
No, the ridges are used to reduce surface tension and for flexion. You'll either install a pull string in the conduit and leave it there, or use a pull string or fishtape later, to pull the cable(s) through. All cables installed now should be outside of the empty conduit. Avoid sharp bends when installing the conduit.
As Greg said, the conduit isn't required, but may avoid the use of a catx extender, in the future, if the run is short.
For my current new TV location, I'm installing cat6 x 4, empty conduit, and coax x 1. I haven't decided on the flex conduit size yet, but probably 1.5".
