Not sure if this is the right place to post this. Please move if not.


I have been employed by one of the major Satellite TV providers, and can attest that much of this is true.



Is your TV spying on YOU? It sounds like science fiction but many new TVs can watch you – telling advertisers your favourite shows or even filming you on the sofa. And there’s no off switch!



Gangs based largely in Eastern Europe and Russia, meanwhile, are already using so-called ‘data-mining’ programmes to trawl the internet looking for smart TVs in which owners have entered their credit card details. A single search can yield thousands of results.

Smart TVs spying on you ? .....To dangerous, let`s go back to the old basic screens, otherwise your TV may be watching you while you watch the TV.

If my t.v. is watching me on the sofa then I really should start wearing pants.

I can guarantee you that my TV isn't watching me because I threw it out years ago.
And good riddance to it.

Well, they are getting a boring show if it is.
I general just have it on, while I'm at work.
It keeps the fellow in my avatar company, while he dozes on the furniture all day.


Maybe they are entertained, by how far his tongue actually sticks out, while he snores.

Morning,

The only television in my house is so old it predates the invention of the VCR.
The only thing it watches is dust collecting on itself.

-Peace-

That is so irresponsible. Do you know just WHO your tv IS watching then?

I despair... people these days, letting their tv's just watch anyone...

Oo

I sure wouldn't doubt it. May be the reason they forced everyone over to digital so they could make this happen.

As long as watching midget porn and making love to myself isn't illegal I should be ok. I feel sorry for the guy that has to monitor me though. The frequency of times and exuberance I display during "me time" has to disturb that poor fellow. Just thinking of the fact that I've been "flogging Molly"" with reckless disregard for that poor chap sickens me.

This is an intriguing story / notion. The technology is developing very quickly and has by no means slowed down. If you include the invention of the home computer, which I feel is relevant, as these TV's are nothing much short of a computer console, only 25 years ago I thought a ZX Spectrum 48k was a miracle of science. My point is, where will it be in 5, 10, or another 25 years.
With the current hoo haa surrounding privacy, it would be interesting to know who if anyone is regulating these machines before they go on sale.
I found this short piece, you might find it interesting:

People said this was conspiracy paranoia when this was first mentioned a year or so ago...
Yet another conspiracy theory that has now been proven as conspiracy fact.

I wonder if the NSA have been spying into peoples homes in this way?
I bet they have..

Yes, we can joke about it but the fact is digital/smart can be away to enter our homes.

they don't even need to hide it, when they are using marketing as good as this to sell it to us.
take a few minutes to watch this short clip and think of the possible ramifications of this device.

Yeah, and I just bought one of those LG 60in 3D Smarts. I was aware of this ahead of time though. Will circumvent. I would be even more concerned about the new game consoles.

Some funny responses. I remember finding hints to data mining in 2007 in discussions with others about the NSA. I, or no one, had the slightest idea it was as extensive as it has been for years. It came as a total shock when Agent Snowden spilled the beans.

The first thing that came to mind was 'Videodrome' Come to think of it it is the very same context that what we see is really watching us-or leading us-or fooling us-or a pattern to control us-or what we see on the tube is not reality at all.

Including, of course, the greatest line in the history of the Cinema. While searching through a box of VHS tapes Blondie(Deborah Harry) ask James Woods "Have you got any porn-it really gets me hot"
