    Has anyone else had issues with a brand new AppleTV out of the box?
    It setup instantly using BT from my phone.

    I go to download apps and it can take 5 minutes for it to even list apps in the app store.
    And when I click Install, it does the animated circle for about 2 seconds on the download icon and then that disappears and no download, no error message, no nothing.

    Really annoying to be going around telling everyone how apple is better, and then this is the experience I get out of the box. Even just an error message that something is wrong would be nice.....

    Maybe as simple as a reboot... Did you call Apple support? Being as it's new you're entitled to. Definitely not the norm, something specific to you -- sounds like you have a slow network.
