Honest answer is you can't you can only make it harder for someone to do. Get a good router with a nice firewall is the most you can do for your tv and research the tv before you buy it to see if it has any security built in allpy updates when available. Cover the tv camera if it has one and turn the mic off when not using it is another thing you can do.

I think the man in charge of the NSA or one of those agencies said he was excited about smart tvs saying now he could here and watch everyone  0..0 

For your phone it's probably the same advice just secure the router and firewall best you can if it updates apply when available and if it has any security settings use them.
