Your television and cable box are spying on EVERY purchase you've ever made

Cable companies are spying on your mortgage, car and student loans, etc.

According to Bloomberg Business:

"Using data from cable set-top boxes that track TV viewing, credit cards and other sources, media companies including Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, Time Warner Inc.’s Turner and Viacom Inc. are trying to compete with Web giants like Google Inc. and Facebook Inc. and help marketers target their messages to the right audience."

What do they mean by "OTHER SOURCES" ? Could they mean our Ebay, Amazon and retail purchases to name a few?

"NBC is using cable set-top box data from parent company Comcast Corp., along with credit card data, automobile data and other sources, to tell advertisers which network, and even which program on that network, is more likely to include their target audience."

Reading between the lines, cable companies and advertisers are spying on your credit card data and automobile data. How much"automobile data" they're spying on is a mystery but if you watch movies, Netflix or Youtube in your 'smart car' you can bet you're being spied on.

Advertisers will send you and your family ads based on EVERY purchase you've made with a credit or debit card.
