Smart TVs are the new normal these days. Mostly based on Android, these smart TVs let you play YouTube, Netflix, Spotify and other streaming services. You can even use voice commands to control your smart TV.
One major problem with these so-called smart TVs are that they probably are spying on you. Your data is being collected with or without your knowledge.
This is the problem KDE’s Plasma Bigscreen project is aiming to solve.
I may well try this out as I already use Manjaro KDE on an Intel NUC computer through HDMI to my large screen TV.
KDE's upcoming Plasma Bigscreen project lets you use open source technologies to turn your regular TV into a smart one.
