I am surprised there has not been an attempt by the TV industry to put a Ratings System into TV hardware yet. "Smart TVs" are relatively new, but in 20 years, I'd imagine there will be a Nielsen app for them (and sports ratings and adult movie ratings will skyrocket).
I'd be very surprised if cable companies don't know what channel and when you're watching. Cable line coming into our house used to be just a straight cable, about 5 years ago they attached this junction box to the cable just before it enters the house. I'm sure they know exactly what's going on.
