for some strange reason, people think that a smart fridge needs to show you the local weather report, so it 'needs' to talk to the Internet.
your TV has an actual need to be able to find out what programs are airing and when they get rescheduled, so it will be talking to the Internet.
So these devices are not going to be limited to the local network.
