Why do people on Long Island invest in Outdoor Televisions?

As you know Long Island is one of the best places to live, especially during the warmer months with beaches in every direction and those small villages we all love to visit. However we also love to enjoy the warm weather in our own yards, especially during these crazy times, and the best way to do that is with an entertainment space customized for you that includes outdoor audio and video. When you create these spaces it extends your indoor living space outdoors, without the stress of adding an extension and a lot cheaper.

Here are just a few of the benefits of owning an outdoor television.

  1. WEAHTERPROOF: Outdoor TVs are designed to withstand the elements. Whether you're dealing with rain, snow, or bright sunlight, an weatherproof TV can handle it all. This means that you can enjoy your favorite shows and movies no matter what the weather is like outside.

  2. BUILT IN SOUND: All weather TVs usually come with built-in speakers. This means that you won't have to worry about connecting an external sound system. Just turn on the unit and enjoy the show. We can help you add a sound-bar or outdoor speaker system for a better audio experience as well.

  3. AFFORDABLE: Weatherproof TVs are becoming increasingly affordable. As technology improves, the price of these televisions are dropping rapidly. This means that you can enjoy all the benefits of an outdoor TV without breaking the bank.

  4. UNIQUE EXPERIENCE: Finally, outdoor TVs offer a unique viewing experience. There's nothing quite like watching your favorite movie under the stars. With an outdoor screen, you can bring the theater right to your backyard. It is also very relaxing in the cooler months when you add an outdoor fire-pit or stylish kerosene heaters.

If you're looking for a way to improve your summertime fun, then an outdoor TV is a great option. These televisions are durable, affordable, and offer a truly unique viewing experience.

How to choose the right set.

With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start when choosing the right one. Here are a few tips to help you get the best value on your new all-weather television.

First, consider what size screen you need. Outdoor TVs come in a variety of sizes, from small 32-inch models to large 80-inch screens. The size should be based on how far away you'll be sitting from it and how big of an area you want to be able to see the screen from. If you'll be sitting close or a have a small space, a smaller screen will be sufficient. However, if you plan on viewing from a distance or want everyone in your backyard to be able to see the television, a larger screen may be necessary. Outdoor projectors and 100" plus screens are available as well but these are best for nighttime viewing only as the sun will wash away the image.

Next, take into account the features you want. Many Outdoor TVs on the market today come with built-in speakers, making it easy to set up your own personal entertainment system. Some models also include Wi-Fi capabilities, so you can stream movies and shows directly to your television. Other features to look for are sun-resistant screens, which will help protect your Outdoor TV from the elements. Another feature is how much sun the display can handle with ratings like Full Shade, Partial Sun and Full Sun. The location of the TV will determine which Sun rating is recommended. Full shade models are the least expensive and full sun are the most expensive. There are two main types of technology on the market: LCD and LED. LCD TVs are typically less expensive, but they don't offer as good of picture quality as LED TVs. LED TVs are more expensive, but they provide a better viewing experience overall.

Finally, don't forget to factor in the price. Outdoor TVs can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, so it's important to set a budget before you start shopping. Once you've determined how much you're willing to spend, give us a call to find the best deal.

Following these tips will help you make the best decision and ensure that you enjoy many hours of entertainment in your Long Island backyard or patio.

The Samsung Terrace is our pick for the best LED outdoor TV. Unlike most TVs on this list, it's designed with weather resistance and an anti-reflective coating to overcome glare. Another great feature are its IP55 water-resistance rating which will protect against dust storms while allowing rainwater pass through without causing damage (though we don't recommend letting any get inside). As far as brightness goes: even at full noon there were no problems seeing what was being displayed thanks again primarily to the anti-reflective coating. If you're looking for an outdoor TV that will withstand the elements and still look great, the Samsung The Terrace is the way to go.

Can I use an outdoor TV outside?

No, you cannot use an indoor TV outside. Indoor TVs are not designed to withstand the elements, and they will quickly break down if exposed to direct sunlight, rain, or snow. Outdoor TVs are specifically built to withstand the differences of seasons, and they feature a much higher level of durability. In addition, outdoor TVs often come equipped with special features, such as built-in speakers and enhanced brightness settings, that make them better suited for use in bright outdoor environments.
