Are Smart TVs too smart for their own good?

Smart TVs give viewers instant access to streaming apps and provide a never-ending supply of binge-worthy shows and movies. But does this convenience come with a cost? Are internet-connected TVs as vulnerable to cybercrime as other smart devices?

In the latest episode of “Hackable?” our host Geoff Siskind plays a prank on our producer Pedro — in the name of education, of course. Pedro is a huge soccer fan, so Geoff drives by with two white-hat hackers to see if they can hack his smart TV during a big game. Can they take remote control in only a half an hour?   

Listen now to the award-winning podcast Hackable? on Apple Podcasts. You don’t want to miss this hilarious episode filled with pranks.
