Scheel's approach, by contrast, can work against many TVs at once and eliminates the need for the attacker to physically control the device. Instead, the hacker need only turn on a transmitter that's within range of a large number of sets, say, in a densely populated apartment building or from a balcony that's near a TV of interest.
