The internet connection to a smart TV doesn't go anywhere near a computer. It travels through your phone cable to your router, from where it's sent to your TV. You don't need a computer at all to use a smart TV.

Do you use your smart TV for banking etc?
it's the spindle reflex actuator coupling, always a weak point. If you buy an adjustable acoustic bramell awl you'll be fine.
Hackers are welcome to hack our smart TVs, don’t know what they’d gain though...maybe our telly watching stuff, probably bore them to death.
There's a slight variance in the isotopic quantum housing lubricator. You need to clean the antigravity spore container.
Oh yes indeed TTT, that’s exactly the way to go :)

However, unlike your computer (which might have, say, your banking details stored on it), there's very little on a smart TV set that could be of interest to hackers, simply because it's not used to store much data. I suppose that it's theoretically possible that someone could hack a smart TV to steal, say, the users' Netflix credentials, and then sell them onto others but there are far, far easier ways for hackers to make their money. I'm certainly not worried about the extremely remote possibility of my TV being hacked!

Thanks Vagus. Someone with a bit of sense.
so they can watch corrie when I do? ( this is the basis of the crying angel program the govt was using to track bad people)

I am not sure they can jump from the tel to your computer where all the porno and er bank details are. Bank stuff I keep on an isolated machine that only goes onto the internet for the two or three minutes neede to contact the bank
