Notification spam

One of my pet peeves is notification spam. Yesterday, I got one from Apple TV reminding me to watch a baseball game. I don’t watch baseball and never watched a game on TV in my life. I’ve no idea what prompted Apple to send me that, but I immediately disabled notifications from the TV app. It’s so annoying.

I forgot to make a screenshot because I was traveling and it actually interrupted something I was doing, but I’ve been collecting them for a while. Here are some examples of useless notifications.

Nowadays by default no app will get notification privileges. I never expected spam from Apple so it got through.
