As annoying as many ads are in the Discovery Bar, at least you know they're ads. We do use the Discovery Bar to find new shows and don't really hate it... but I think we're about to. Today I've found two advertisements for movies that look exactly like normal Discovery Bar objects for TV shows. One was for the movie Conviction and I forgot what the other one is (it'll certainly pop up many more times). I selected Conviction to see what as I never heard of it and I guess due to lag or whatever the TV icon indicated this was a show available on TV so I selected it and it took me directly to an SD menu where I could by tickets. I had a serious WTF!?! moment because I expected it to bring me to the HD list of showings on TV not to go buy something. Then upon going back to the discovery bar the TV icon had disappeared and I realized it was a freeking ad. Extremely annoying.
