    I just had a weird thing happen with appleTv 4 while watching Terminator Genesys on iTunes movies. In the midst of the movie, screen shrank and on the side was an ad for a Toyota truck. Has anyone have the same experience before? Who is responsible for this ad? I should have taken a picture but I was just busy trying to get rid of it.

    Was that a movie you purchased through the iTunes Store?

    It was blu-ray code redeemed in iTunes. I have been watching multiple movies since I got ATV4 last week and had never seen it before. It was pretty upsetting to see in the middle of movie. This doesn't seem like anything apple would do. I wonder if other app can trigger an ad like this.

    I had a glitch where the movie was playing and the menu screen for the movie was overlaid on top. Seems like a bug in the display properties can occasionally allow other processes on top of the movies app. It's not common, but it's a glitch that Apple will hopefully fix in the next update.

    I force quit the movies app and resumed without issue.
