Published March 11, 2021

Looking for an excuse to go out? Maybe you just need an outdoor TV. 

 

As the weather gets nicer this year – and the pandemic shows no signs of slowing down – more and more families are starting to look to their yard and outdoor spaces as avenues for possible home upgrades. There’s no better upgrade to a home than setting up a lovely and enjoyable outdoor theater with a modern outdoor TV. 

 

Some people, however, have a resistance to outdoor TVs, thinking that they are overpriced shadows of what is possible with an indoor TV. That couldn’t be further from the truth: Today’s outdoor TVs are bright, 4K-resolution capable devices that can bring your favorite entertainment outdoors! So, to really help our customers know what outdoor TVs are capable of, this week on the blog we’re going to debunk some common misconceptions and answer some common questions that come up about them.

Are Outdoor TVs Weatherproof?

 

You bet!

 

One of the most important things we tell people about TVs is that they should never use an indoor TV in an outdoor application. While indoor TVs are great, they just aren’t made to deal with the elements the way an outdoor TV is. Installing and using an indoor TV outside will most assuredly drastically shorten up the life of that TV but also poses a safety hazard as well. 

 

Hence the necessity of a true outdoor TV. With an outdoor TV, you get a product that was specifically crafted to work under all types of conditions. This means that not only are they weatherproof, but they are also proofed against a lot of the different problems a TV outdoors would face.  A good outdoor TV comes is built to withstand a beating from the elements including protection from moisture, temperature changes, rust, corrosion, dust, and even from insects and small animals as well. 

 

Outdoor TVs are also safety rated for the outdoors as well, which protects you and your children from accidental shock or electrocution.

Are Outdoor TVs Good?

 

While many people seem to have a negative opinion of outdoor TVs, these opinions are outdated and wrong.

 

Outdoor TVs look great – you can get outdoor TVs in stunning 4K resolution that matches your beautiful indoor TV sets. They also are made to be quiet brighter – sometimes even up to four times brighter than your indoor TVs – which means that you can enjoy the picture even if you are setting up your outdoor theater overlooking the pool in direct sunlight. Anti-glare technology even gives you the ability to watch from different angles, meaning the whole party can enjoy the TV no matter where they decide to sit. 

 

Are Outdoor TVs Worth it?

 

An Outdoor TV is typically more than an indoor TV of equivalent size, but they are worth it. Not only are they built to withstand the elements as we previously mentioned they are also designed to give you a movie theater 4K video experience in direct sunlight and in high glare situations where indoor TVs repeatedly fail. Additionally, they have a better warranty than most indoor TVs – which are voided the moment you take them outside anyway. 

 

Pair these high-quality rugged video displays with some weatherproof outdoor speakers and you’ll be enjoying outdoor movie nights, barbecues, and pool parties before you know it.
