Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What is your main concern? I know on television they are saying that some smart television can be hacked and used to spy on people.. That only comes into play for televisions with built in microphones and/ or cameras.. Neither of which I see as a selling point when browsing the spec of a television in store or online. If a television does have these features there is most likely a menu to disable them. I just bought a Samsung 65″ 4k Smart television in Feb 2017. It was a leftover from 2016 and it does not have these features. I would not worry.

    Why did you think about this? Is our world so insecure that even we can think about to secure a smart TV also? Is there any problem/issue? If yes, then what type of symptoms are there. What make/model of your TV? If it is android based, then no need for any anti-virus etc.

    It's hard to say without more specifics. If security is your concern, your best bet is to reach out to Samsung and see if there are any firmware updates. Installing the latest version should, in theory, get your system to a more secure state. If privacy is your concern, your best bet is going to be to disable the smart TV features - or, at least the ones that make you uncomfortable.
