    Hello @DotnEd,

    Installing antivirus software on a smart TV is generally not necessary, in my humble opinion. Smart TVs typically run on operating systems like Android TV, WebOS, Tizen, or others, which usually have built-in security features to protect against malware and other online threats. However, this may depend on the model/make of your smart TV and specifications.

    Should you need additional protection for your router and smart TV, have a look at what Netgear Armor (powered by Bitdefender) has to offer:

    These top-shelf routers come with advanced multi-layer cybersecurity solution that protects not only your network but individual devices as well, such as your smart TV.

    I hope the information is helpful.

    Regards,

    To add here, since I am using an Android Smart TV, you can only install Bitdefender VPN on it. Although it works well in the web browser, if you use any OTT (over-the-top) apps, you may have to disconnect the VPN. If you need antivirus software out of curiosity on your Android TV, you can either install ESET or Dr.Web from the Play Store.
