LG To Look Into Smart TV 'Spying' Claim

LG is investigating allegations that some of its smart TVs send details about their owners' viewing habits back to the manufacturer.

According to this blog, an IT consultant detailed how his Smart TV was sending data about which channels were being watched. The TVs were also uploaded information about the contents of devices attached to the device. According to the blogger, the TV was kept sending information to LG's servers despite the fact that he had disabled an option called "collection of watching info".

The U.K's Information Commissioner's Office contacted the South Korean company and was told that by using the TV he had accepted LG's terms and conditions.

But the company added that it was looking into the complaint.
