For whatever reason, some sets have a redish tint on one side and a blueish tint on the other side. I also have that, but only when viewing from an angle - and it's only really noticeable on a pure white screen (advertisements with a solid white background and ice hockey) - and even then, you really have to look for it to notice it.
But again, I don't think this has anything to do with the pinkish anti-glare coating or else it would affect the entire screen the same (and all white image would have a pink'ish tint) - and it would affect all sets.

I believe it is, and here is why.
When I move at a certain angle the pink tint disappears.
If I look at my screen from the side of the TV I can clearly see a distinct curve on that side of the screen in question.
The screen bends slightly forward on the side with the tint effect.
When I move my seating position to the same side that the tint effect appears the tint becomes more prominent.
The tint effect is the same colour as the screen coating.
Having looked at a lot of screens shots of these TVs the effect only appears on the edges and people have reported that moving seating positions does make this appear/disappear.
So I think it comes down to screens not being absolutely straight.
TL : DR
The tint effect on the side in question of my TV, the screen curves slightly inward.
Shifting seating positions makes this effect disappear.
Tint effect same colour as the screen coating.
Check out the attached image, look at the far side of the screen it has a slight curve to it.
Also in bright day light I see the light refract/bend from that side of the screen differently than the other side of the screen.
