It appears that the Apple TV software update 5.3 has removed the "TV Shows" icon from the main menu.  Now, I no longer have AppleTV access to the TV shows I have purchased and I am unable to search/purchase other TV shows.  Has anyone similar findings?


Note:  Parental Controls are confirmed to have not hidden the "TV Shows" icon; in fact, the "TV Shows" icon does not appear in my Apple TV's Parental Controls settings.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.


    There appears to be a large increase in this type of problem at this time, it seems that that there is a problem at Apple's end, but I couldn't at all be sure.


    There are no issues being reported at Apple’s System Status page, but this status may yet be updated and it may be you need to try again a little later.


    This isn't affecting me here in the UK, where exactly are you.


    So far I have noted users in the following locations having similar problems:


    • USA


    If this is a problem at Apple’s end, it rarely happens, however when it does only Apple can fix it. When this has occurred previously it has usually been resolved in a few hours or slightly more.
