    It's pretty cool. I do get confused when it recommends something and I'm like "Is this coming from my cable subscription, Amazon Prime, something I bought, or somewhere else". I had no idea I bought Big little lies. I wonder how that happened!

    It gives some weird foreign language artwork...

    B4EA678D-31D1-407C-9536-06A57384A800.



    And I do not remember giant spiders in Adams Rib...

    5C2551CE-1178-4026-8D10-EFD82C7BEEE9.

    The interesting thing is if you search for a movie within the app it shows correct art. It's only I incorrect in your library...

    An odd thing is that you essentially have 2 ways of accessing your iTunes movies - the iTunes Movies app and the TV app. I'm not sure the point in having both and I might just delete something.

    You also get 2 completely different interfaces, but no difference in functionality, depending on which one you use...

    Apple TV

    7C96BB3C-7FDE-4627-A5ED-519E9B117E73.

    020F9758-5D00-40AB-B70B-240C6933F3D4.



    iTunes Movies

    93F3E991-28E2-4875-B868-84A2DA95DE71.

    45AFD487-8B87-48A3-8BC9-B4F11D457B34.

    Are you signed up for the Beta updates? I am and that explains why I had these features for a while now.

    One thing I don’t like about this version is that it no longer tells you exactly how many 4K/HDR films you own.

    Conspiracy theory states: To make it easier for them to remove your 4K items slowly so you'll never notice until they've been gone too long to fix!

    Apparently floated after several people noticed their Harry Potter's had been downgraded -- probably a temp glitch, but when does that ever stop conspiracies from taking on a life of their own.

    I see the Apple TV app has finally been added to my non-Beta 4KATV units.

    I was surprised to discover my 3rd Gen ATV also got an update. I figured updates were done for that unit.

    ...oh, there's a mention of that at the end of the linked article. No details.
