Forget Game of Thrones as Android ransomware infects TVs

If you don't want a connected TV, don't connect it to your network.

Similarly: If you don't want your TV to pick up terrestrial broadcasts, don't plug in an aerial.

For smaller sizes, you could just buy yourself a monitor I guess, but at bigger sizes every TV using the latest panel technology (OLED, Quantum Dot, local dimming etc) will have a 'smart' functionality and a tuner or two. The functionality really doesn't add much to the cost of the TV.
