Re: Killing TVs, a step too far

"Last time I checked, a Smart TV is incapable of plugging in a network cable itself, or even attaching to your WiFi without the password. If it is on your network it is because you put it there."

I'm guessing you don't deploy anything within arms reach of users. Aside from that, many TVs are pretty useless when not on the network, particularly in enterprise environments where they will be used for information display etc.
