    Consumer Reports reported that all major brand smart TVs use a technology called automatic content recognition (ACR) to keep track of what you are watching. ACR enables the TVs to send data to third parties on everything you watch, be it a Netflix movie, a YouTube video, an over-the-air TV broadcast, or DVD from your private collection.
