Hi there Traci. Great question. All SunBrite TVs (including this Veranda series) are designed for full exposure to even very heavy rain. But the real beauty of the product is not just that it can survive the elements. It's has a very bright 4K HDR screen that provides a fantastic picture and viewing experience in dynamic outdoor lighting conditions. Nice to be able to actually see what you're watching outside! Hope that answers your question. Happy outdoor living!
