More than enough bloat for me and I believe that is not the fault of ATV but of the Sony execs. I have read some things are hackable via the usual Android methods i.e. ADB but I am not well educated in Android and am hesitant to monkey around on a new $1k TV.Thanks! Although I am not an Apple guy (I like to build my own desktops), I do own an Apple phone, so Android interface is a little foreign to me. I find it a little ironic that Android (which is usually fairly liberal in regards to user modifications) is similar to Apple on this TV. A very minor annoyance for an otherwise excellent TV.
It wouldn't surprise me. I am a long time PlayStation owner so I know how that goes. With that said there is very little bloat on this TV compared to its competitors.
BTW nice Avatar! Harmonogram no?
