For most families, friends, and colleagues that's a technical bridge too far... Many Smart TV's are also shipped with rushed firmware. You may have no choice but to let it go online it from time to time...

How are you going to control all that on a Firewall port basis when the TV makers may share ports for updating and spying? TV data is encrypted, it can't be easily deciphered...
