LG are a bunch of shysters, they removed basically all the useful smart features of my TV 1 by 1, to force an upgrade; I will never buy another smart TV, next time it will be a smart box addon.

Buy anything smart is really a dumb thing to do. Smart = spying on you. Boycott LG if they are going to treat their customers like that.

Im just buying "Dumb" tvs and connecting them to my PC with a TV tuner card... And I can get as smart as a PC allows.
Ill never understand why people want apps in tvs... or in phones for the matter.
I guess im getting old but for me a phone is for calling... Sure a camera to capture a moment might have some usefullness but other stuff?
I remmber this once that I was with a co-worker at a bar in spain, and He picks out his phone, checks the weather for that day, and goes: "Oh, its gonna rain today".
Im sitting in front of him with a raincoat and im thinking "Good you check that after you leave home, and have no way to change the outcome of the situation".

Sometimes I feel like humans are getting dummer in my generation...
