Enhance Your Outdoor Experience with the Perfect TV

Imagine watching your favorite movie under the starry night sky or catching the big game while enjoying a backyard barbecue. Thanks to outdoor TVs, this dream is now a reality. Outdoor Style Company offers a range of outdoor TVs, including partial sun, shaded, and full sun models. In this guide, we'll help you navigate the world of outdoor TVs and select the perfect one for your outdoor oasis.

The Marvel of Outdoor TVs

Outdoor-rated TVs are a remarkable feat of technology. They're designed to withstand the challenges of the great outdoors, where moisture and dust can wreak havoc on delicate electronics. At Outdoor Style Company, we're proud to offer Titan outdoor TVs, known for their durability and rust-proof aluminum casings. Some even come with extra protection for full-sun installations.

Choosing the Right TV Type

Before diving into TV sizes and mounting options, it's crucial to choose the right TV type for your outdoor space. Here are your options:

The Perks of Partial Sun TVs

When it comes to outdoor entertainment, not all spaces are created equal. Some outdoor areas receive partial sun exposure throughout the day, and this is where Partial Sun TVs shine—literally! Here are some of the benefits of opting for a Partial Sun TV for your outdoor setup:

  • Optimal Visibility: Partial Sun TVs are designed to perform exceptionally well in areas with varying levels of sunlight. They feature specialized displays that maintain excellent visibility, even when the sun is at its brightest. Say goodbye to squinting at your screen during daytime events.

  • Extended Lifespan: These TVs are crafted to withstand the unique challenges posed by partial sun exposure. They come equipped with enhanced weatherproofing and durability, ensuring they last for years to come.

  • Versatile Placement: Partial Sun TVs are versatile in terms of placement. They're ideal for areas like patios, pergolas, and decks that receive intermittent sunlight. Whether you're watching the morning news or enjoying a sunset movie, your viewing experience will be top-notch.

  • Energy Efficiency: Many Partial Sun TVs are designed with energy efficiency in mind. They often consume less power than their full sun counterparts, helping you save on electricity costs while enjoying outdoor entertainment.

  • Reduced Glare: Specialized screens help minimize glare, making it easier to see your content clearly, even on sunny days. No need to rearrange your seating to avoid glare spots.

Basking in the Benefits of Full Sun TVs

For those fortunate enough to have outdoor spaces that bask in full sunlight throughout the day, Full Sun TVs are the ultimate choice for outdoor entertainment. Here's why they're a perfect fit:

  • Sun-Resistant Design: Full Sun TVs are engineered to withstand direct sunlight and extreme outdoor conditions. They feature external protections that shield them from moisture, temperature fluctuations, and other elements, ensuring they perform flawlessly.

  • Vibrant Display: The displays on Full Sun TVs are meticulously calibrated to deliver optimal brightness and contrast, even in the harshest sunlight. This means you'll enjoy stunning visuals without any loss in quality.

  • All-Day Entertainment: With Full Sun TVs, you can keep your outdoor TV on all day, enjoying continuous entertainment without worrying about screen damage. Whether it's a day-long sports event or a marathon of your favorite shows, these TVs have you covered.

  • Unmatched Clarity: Say goodbye to squinting or struggling to see the screen in direct sunlight. Full Sun TVs offer unmatched clarity and visibility, making every outdoor viewing experience a pleasure.

  • Durable and Dependable: These TVs are built to last, thanks to their robust construction and exterior protection. Invest in a Full Sun TV, and you'll have a reliable outdoor entertainment companion for years.

The Allure of Covered TVs

Covered outdoor areas, like patios and pergolas, offer a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living. For such spaces, Covered TVs are the ideal choice. Here's why they're a great addition to your covered outdoor oasis:

  • Protected from the Elements: Covered TVs are shielded from direct sunlight, rain, and other harsh outdoor conditions. This protection ensures the longevity of your TV and its consistent performance.

  • Cozy Viewing Experience: Enjoy the best of both worlds—an open-air atmosphere with the comforts of indoor entertainment. Covered TVs provide a cozy viewing experience, making them perfect for lounging or entertaining guests.

  • Stylish Integration: These TVs seamlessly blend with covered outdoor spaces, often featuring sleek and modern designs that complement your décor. They can be mounted on walls, placed in enclosures, or integrated into custom cabinetry for a polished look.

  • Extended Entertainment Hours: With Covered TVs, you're not limited to daytime entertainment. You can continue watching your favorite shows and movies well into the evening, thanks to the protection from the elements.

  • Easy Maintenance: Covered TVs typically require less maintenance since they are sheltered from outdoor debris and weather. This means more time enjoying your entertainment and less time cleaning or worrying about weather damage.

Whether you have a covered patio, a shaded pergola, or a sun-drenched outdoor space, choosing the right outdoor TV to match your environment can enhance your outdoor entertainment experience significantly. Each type of outdoor TV—Partial Sun, Full Sun, and Covered—brings its unique benefits to the table, ensuring you can enjoy your favorite shows, movies, and sports events while embracing the beauty of the great outdoors.

Smart Outdoor TVs

Smart outdoor TVs are equipped with integrated internet capabilities, allowing you to connect via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. They come with pre-installed apps for popular streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, making them a great choice for those who love outdoor entertainment.

Non-Smart Outdoor TVs

Non-smart outdoor TVs are more traditional in nature, lacking internet access. However, they can easily connect to your existing cable or satellite TV service. If you prefer streaming, you can always connect an external device like a Roku remote or Amazon Firestick.

Finding the Perfect Mount

Mounting your outdoor TV is a crucial consideration. Outdoor Style Company is happy to assist in finding the perfect mount for your TV.  

Ceiling Mounts

Ceiling mounts create a sleek look and work well in different outdoor settings.

Articulating Wall Mounts

If glare is a concern, consider articulating mounts. They allow you to tilt, swivel, and pan your TV to find the perfect angle.

Wall Mounts

Wall mounts provide a stationary option and are best viewed from straight on.

Pole Mounts

Pole mounts are versatile and can be set in concrete, placed in planters, or bolted to flat surfaces. They're commonly used with full-exposure TVs and offer a clean aesthetic.

Selecting the Ideal TV Size

When it comes to outdoor TVs, size matters. To choose the right size, measure the distance from your planned TV placement to your viewing area. Then, divide that distance by 2 and by 1.5 to get an approximate range of TV sizes. Keep in mind that TVs are measured diagonally from corner to corner.

Final Considerations for Your Outdoor TV

Outdoor TV Placement: Certain models are designed for specific placements, such as covered or shaded areas, while others excel in full exposure to sunlight and the elements.

Enhance Audio with Outdoor Speakers & Soundbars: Elevate your outdoor viewing experience with optional outdoor speakers and soundbars, designed to withstand outdoor conditions and deliver high-definition audio.
