The Washington Post earlier this year found that some of the most popular smart TV makers — including Samsung and LG — collect tons of information about what users are watching in order to help advertisers better target ads against their viewers and to suggest what to watch next, for example. The TV tracking problem became so problematic a few years ago that smart TV maker Vizio had to pay $2.2 million in fines after it was caught secretly collecting customer viewing data. Earlier this year, a separate class action suit related to the tracking again Vizio was allowed to go ahead.

The irony is that your cable/dish/tv provider have been doing this for decades.

Nothing Smart about TV maybe when the classic shows were playing now it's just scary.
I haven't watched TV since 2008 when the CRT went away.
