I found the same with a newish Samsung Smart TV. I was taken back by the amount of agreements that initially appeared to need agreeing to. This time If i remember correctly there were 4 separate agreements which was more than any previous Smart TV I had purchased. So I decided to disagree to them all and to see what worked and what didn't. I guess in theory the TV should basically work just like a non Smart TV with no agreements agreed to.
However, surprisingly I do remember that the things I did check seemed to work without issue.
It's a few months ago now so the exact details I'm unsure of. One thing I did find (as I guess will be the same with many) is the last thing you want is to read and faff around with deciding on if you agree or disagree to something when the exciting bit (well for me anyway - since I was a bench engineer) is seeing how good the picture and sound are.
It would be good if there was a paper "note" with a brief description as to why you need to agree to each of the TV's separate agreements.
As per Michael Chare post, I believe two of the large TV companies had complaints about their Voice search facilities, basically "listening" to other chit chat before a key word was spoken. Then this info would be returned to their servers.
These are the sort of things that I believe have been classed as a security issue and something to be aware of.
On the Internet side I just use the Lan connection connected to an Internet switch as I found that at peak times there was too much WiFi interference between different flats in the small block I live in. I even purchased MetaGeek's Inssider software to get a clear visual display of competing WiFi signals in my vicinity.
What would happen is that my Tv's Wifi connection would fall back to a slower connection speed until it was stable. With Amazon Video that meant usually moving from 1080 to 720 resolutions.
