In order to provide you with customized Smart TV experiences, some of our feature and services will rely on your TV viewing history and Smart TV usage information.

Your TV viewing history includes information about the networks, channels, websites visited and programs viewed on your Smart TV and the amount of time spent viewing them. We may use automatic content recognition (ACR) and other technologies to capture this information. Your Smart TV transfers video snippets or TV tuner information in order to determine the programs watched.


Sounds like they are quietly taking screenshots and uploading them.

This really needs to stop. The default for every device should be to not accumulate a dossier on your habits.

What we really need is a dossier of the names of Congressmen who are betraying your privacy.

Buy one used and run it in the closet with your Amazon Alexa, playing nothing but the shower scene from the original Psycho film over and over again.

Just more lies,hoaxes,fake news.
There is no way the Stupid Scum Republicans would allow this in America.
Two years we had a Slime Republican president & Congress & they stopped all invasions of privacy by businesses & their Big Govt. intelligence agencies.
RepCons give up their freedom for a stock market sugar high based on the Fed,RepCons Trumpies pumping $1,000,000,000,000 a year into the wealthy end of the economy.How much have idiot RepCons received at 0% interest in poor Red States?

Nothing like making Republicans look like the fools they are.

You can block the TV from sending personl info, but still use it for internet?

I don't use the TV for interwebz. The apps on so-called "smart TVs" suck anyway. All it gets is an HDMI connection to a receiver.

I'm no IT guy, but couldn't you just block the port on the router? Tell me if I'm wrong as this ain't my gig. Wouldn't that prevent the TV maker from accessing the device? Or at least change the port number from the default if it's a common port and then password on the TV (if there is one).

That's why I would use something like Ethereal to snoop on the network traffic. I wouldn't think the Streaming libraries are the same URL as the Cloud Mother ship collecting the information. I would look for traffic during the watching of content. Try to figure out which is the video chunks and which one belongs to the logging of information, the block that URL.

Yup, NSA and FBI 24/24 listening to belching, balls being scratched, popcorn munching, and raucous football cheering. Sweet revenge.
