The only way I'd consider a LG TV after this is if I put it behind a firewall that only allowed access to a whitelist of content providers. I am not a herd animal to be milked by advertising, "targeted" or otherwise.
Spy all you want LG. I only require that you openly disclose in common language what it is you are capturing and I want my hardware at half price since your cost to build the TV is now being subsidized by advertising.
That's BS about the metadata excuse. They send filenames to LG's server, then look up metadata for the names on LG's servers, then transmit the metadata back to the user? I call BS on all of that nonsense.
As they have supposed in the blog, they don't have to store anything on the server, as the log files contain most pertinent information that data miners would be interested in.

"Oh shoot! They figured out that we're transmitting filenames! What excuse can we come up with for that?"
"How about that we're looking up *metadata*. Yeah! That's the ticket! We were trying to provide a useful *service* to the users!"
