To clarify, what is cc? If you need Android, would a Shield box work? I think you're going to need something external if you want sports action to be smooth. The internal apps are choppy even on my friend's Sony OLED.

That wouldn't work for me though. I bought this TV for a specific reason, and the panel or speakers weren't that (I was debating to get LG oled tv). Choose this specifically because of the Android functions (cc being the important one).
I don't think jitter has anything to do with Apple TV. It might be coincidence you noticed it when you turned it on. I had no jitter issues until Oreo updates.
Agree that is isn't the Apple TV - the PS4 or Xbox also steal the video from the Android OS, and all external hardware is smooth. The TV inbuilt apps are too jittery to use to watch Netflix or other content.
Glad to see others are seeing the choppy performance with Oreo, and it isn't localised to my set.
On the confirming the HDR, it definitely says HDR in the Information box on the TV - but using the same (TV) Picture settings on the Apple TV and the Android OS using Netflix - it's completely clear that the base OS is doing HDR and the Apple TV isn't. The content displays brighter colours and far better colours on the TV app rather than the external Hardware - I feel that Sony are purposely limiting their performance.
Noticed also that on the Apple TV it says 'HDR' on the content window (Netflix indicating that HDR is available for the show), and compared to the Android OS - the same content shows "Dolby HDR", again a clear indication that the settings aren't being received or actioned by external hardware.
Additionally since the TV update, the Apple TV asks every time its turned on "Try HDR", could be a cable on its way out - or just a rubbish cable.
