Your smart TV might be spying on you.

LG is investigating claims that some of its TVs are sending information about viewing habits back to the manufacturer even if a privacy setting has been turned on.

In one case in Britain, information about which shows and channels were being watched was allegedly uploaded, along with content information from other devices connected to the TV.

If the allegations are true, it could mean LG has broken some laws, and the British government is looking into it.

LG says it's checking out the complaints and will offer official comments later.
