iTunes, Apple TV users see TV shows disappear

Issue unreported on Apple's system status page

A number of users are reporting that access to TV shows has vanished on the Apple TV and in the Mac and Windows versions of iTunes. On the Apple TV, the app for TV shows has disappeared; in iTunes, trying to click on the "TV Shows" tab in the iTunes Store may boot users back to the storefront's homepage. Apple's system status page shows no sign of the problem.

The issue is presumably a glitch in Apple's infrastructure. Apple has also been making a constant stream of updates to the Apple TV however, which could require temporary downtime.

    Clicking on TV Shows brings me back to the storefront's home page; however, if I click the disclosure triangle and then choose something from the ensuing dropdown menu, it brings me to the correct store page for that item.

    I too had the disappearing TV Show button on all three of my AppleTV's today but as of about 30 minutes ago they have all bee restored. Odd.
