How to disable Blinkfeed in Sense 5.5
The only thing you need to do is to pinch-in while at your homescreen. This will bring up the shortcuts and widgets menu. It's the same menu that allows you to change the default homescreen panel. Now, in Sense 5.5, there's a "Blinkfeed off" button in the upper-left corner of that screen. Press it, and Blinkfeed will be forever gone. Well, not really, because you can bring it back at anytime just by pressing this same button again.
And there you have it - that's how to disable Blinkfeed on the HTC One, One mini or One max running Sense 5.5. If you still haven't received Sense 5.5 on your HTC One, just be patient, as HTC has initiated the roll-out of the update. Meanwhile, the One mini should also get Android 4.3 along with Sense 5.5 at some point, but HTC hasn't said exactly when this is going to happen.

This should of been a standard feature whenever Sense 5 came out. Whenever I see silly stuff like this, I see why HTC has seen better days....COME ON HTC
What happened to being quietly brilliant?

Nobody said it was horrible. But the option to turn it on or off is the smart thing (Android is all about freedom, openness, customization)
Get a grip and reread. Unbunch your panties, etc

To me it's the best thing about the HTC One and why I gave it a look over. I think they should have the option to hide the whole OS in this style. Yes I'm a Windows Phone guy BTW.
