so much Junk on the home screen of Apple TV, would love the ability to delete channels (I know you can set Parental Controls, but...)

So "hide" it in Parental controls and move on with your day.
bitch bitch bitch... :rolleyes:

FYI... the WWE Network isn't working right now. :P

What's with all the stupid channels putting "WATCH" above the name of their channel? I'm surprised Apple allows this. I'm in marketing, so I understand the value of a strong call to action. However, we're already using Apple TV, so it's implicit that all the icons are channels that we can "WATCH". Do app icons put "OPEN" or "RUN" above their name? Do we really need to see "WATCH Disney" instead of just "Disney"?

I wouldn't mind not being able to remove of these icons if they weren't so ugly and promotional. Not to mention, they almost all require a cable subscription, which I do not have and do not want.
