With this big push to get everybody to have a smart TV, my Wife and I decided to go out a couple of months ago and search out a non-smart TV so we have a spare and they can't force us to have a smart TV.
Almost nobody had any of the non-smart TVs left, but we did find one we liked and bought it.
I refuse to have a smart TV in the house because there is nothing to stop them from listening to everything you say in your house, and if the model you pick also has a hidden camera, they can watch you too. I just don't need that.
All the smart TVs we looked at have Wifi capability so there is no way to prevent them from connecting to the internet by themselves and spying on you.
