Arrange icons on the Apple TV menu Other Hardware
Apple has published a technical note explaining how to re-position icons on the Apple TV. While you can't move those on the top row, you can move others, as follows:
  1. Select the icon you want to move
  2. Press and hold Select on the remote
  3. When the icon begins to jiggle, use the remote to move the icon to a new position
  4. Press Select again to finish
I actually find this to be simpler than on an iOS device. Now, if only they could add folders to the Apple TV...

You can also hide any icon with the exception of the first row. Don't use Hulu Plus, just hde the icon with filtering.

The top row cannot be moved, it appears.

I want to get rid of a few of these. Is there any easy way to do that?

In the main menu, pressing and holding the select button used to sleep the Apple TV. This can be done in Settings, but it's a bit clunky (particularly as the Settings menu is then the first thing to be seen upon powering up).

Anyone know a better way?

Why, yes.

Hold down the play/pause button instead for about 2 seconds.

You're welcome…
