Don't πŸ‘πŸ» connect πŸ‘πŸ» your πŸ‘πŸ» TV πŸ‘πŸ» to πŸ‘πŸ» the πŸ‘πŸ» Internet!

Ever! Buy something - a Roku, an Apple TV, a PS4, an Xbox, a Raspberry Pi running Plex, *anything* - and use that as your video source. Don't ever use the TV's own Internet-connect apps. First, they're guaranteed to spy on you. All sly TV brands do this as far as I can tell. Second, they *suck* in comparison with what you get from a set top box.

Just don't do it!

@tek ok where are we in jailbreaking TVs to fix this insanity?

@TheGibson @PINE64 @11backslashes @tek

I just want a TV operating system that won't spy on and then murder me

@thegibson @PINE64 @11backslashes @Mainebot @tek A PineTV would be really cool.That's exactly what's still missing.And that's the only thing I can imaginge which could ever replace my good old CRT television.
