What do you really get from your smart TV's free channels?

Commercials, ads, and tracking technology mean all the free perks comes at a cost.

◻ Free content on smart TVs and streaming devices is often filled with uninspired and cheap titles.
◻ Channels are free due to ads that generate revenue for TV brands.
◻ Automatic content recognition on TVs tracks what you watch to help create targeted ads and inform monetization strategies.

TV brands love to boast about all the extra perks you'll receive if you buy their product. One commonality among the top brands that make smart TVs, as well as those that make video streaming sticks, is the notion of free content. They all claim some combination of free channels, movies, TV shows, or even services. Samsung TV Plus, which comes with Samsung smart TVs, boasts over 1,000 free titles, while LG Channels offers over 300 channels. The Roku Channel, meanwhile, is a free streaming service comprising shows, movies, and news as well as a bunch of on-demand titles. Meanwhile, Google TV claims over 800 channels. There are also free services like Pluto TV, Tubi, and Freevee.
