    AT&T is advertising DirecTV in the notification panel of their carrier-branded Galaxy S7
    Carrier bloatware is nothing new, but injecting advertising into the notification panel is taking this a step too far.

    We saw HTC do this with BlinkFeed and they received a lot of bad press about it. Now it looks like AT&T's version of the S7 is asking you to download the DirecTV app and signup for its service directly in the notification panel.

    You have to tap a little gear icon and manually disable the notification. So not the end of the world, but still annoying in my opinion
