I got a “smart” TV, but have never connected it to a network… I made sure I got one with an ethernet port, turned wifi OFF and have never plugged in a network cable. The IP address has been set to something that will never work in the off chance someone ever does accidentally plug it in.

I made sure it is one that can be upgraded with the firmware on a USB stick, it does not need to be online to be upgraded…

It is used as a huge monitor for a Linux multimedia PC, but that’s fine!

+1 K9 on Android. Bonus points for installing it via f-droid. Extra bonus points for installing it on a degoogled Android such as LineageOS :-)
