Movie and TV Genius Recommendations Showing Up on Apple TV [Update]

Last time we told you about the update to Apple TV that included a new TV Shows menu and new TV networks. Now it appears some users have run into a Genius recommendations menu for TV shows and movies. reader @RuhnDMC noted last night a peculiar new addition to this Apple TV under the Movies tab. The menu item “ATV.Menu.Movie.GeniusItem” had mysteriously appeared. Upon selecting the item it resulted in an error page that notes the iTunes Store is down.
