LG Dumbs Down Your Smart TV For Declining Its Privacy Policy

So you buy a Smart TV for its features but the manufacturer can disable those features at will if you do not consent to an updated privacy policy?

"Because I will not agree to LG’s Privacy Policy, I can now no longer access/use any of of the TV’s network based programs: [BBC] iPlayer, Skype, 3D etc." What sort of horrific modern nightmare is this? It’s one that could come soon to a formerly-smart television near you, too.
