    The new interface in ATV11 is terrible now “watched or unwatched, no information other than title and poster is available for any movie… All the info and imageless was formerly a “scroll through”. I hate this interface and it takes twice as long (or longer, to find the movie i was looking for, but if I make the wrong selection the process starts again. I have 1670 movies on my ATV, nothing was wrong with the previous interface which allowed much quicker browsing and selection from the library. Reversion is futile as Apple will stop supporting TVOS 10.x soon, and unlike old computers this will wreck the system again. C’mob Apple… at least give us the option of interfaces. Make it usable over someone else’s idea of “pretty”.
