Choosing an Outdoor Television for Your Dream Deck
It can be a dilemma. What do you do when you and your friends don't want to miss a single swing of the bat during the big game, but can't bear wasting a bluebird day being cooped up inside the house? Of course, the TVs for outside use that you'll find here at Best Buy are the answer you're looking for. One of these TVs is a great way to add an extra dimension to your backyard, deck or patio, and at the same time, make the space more entertaining for you, your kids and your guests. These weatherproof TVs are specifically designed for safe operation year-round, in a variety of climates. They're essentially oblivious to whatever Mother Nature throws at them, plus, many all-weather TVs are rated to work in temperatures ranging from minus 24 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
Additionally, several of these outdoor televisions have brilliant, extra-bright screens optimized for direct daytime sunlight, or darker nighttime outdoor viewing environments. Many also feature 4K UHD resolution so you're not giving up the true-to-life picture quality you love.
Selecting one of the TVs for outside as the cornerstone of your ideal outdoor living area is a good first step, but what else do you have in mind? Does your vision include a versatile, quality barbecue grill? Or outdoor lighting you can customize to match the mood? How about bug zappers to keep flying pests from being a nuisance? And maybe an outdoor fireplace or hearth? You're in the right place. You'll find a large selection of feature-packed all-weather TVs here, as well as a multitude of other items for outdoor entertaining.
Setting Up Your Outdoor TV
So, once you've narrowed down the assortment of outdoor TVs to the one that's best for you, what's next? Other considerations include determining the optimal location for viewing. You'll also want to select your best mounting option — on a wall, on a mounting pole, on the ceiling, or in an enclosed cabinet (which could also serve to deter vandalism or theft, if that's a concern). Don't want to go the cabinet route? Then you may want to check out outdoor TV covers to safeguard the screen. You'll also want to consider how you're going to connect your TV to your video source, either wired or wireless. Generally, wired is considered to be more reliable, but a wireless setup could make it easier to incorporate a Blu-ray player or other streaming device into the mix.
You'll also want to think about the best way to provide sound that will match the quality of the picture. We have a wide selection of outdoor speakers, making it easy for you to turn up the volume, whether you choose a wired or wireless configuration. Take note of water resistance capabilities when choosing your outdoor speakers, if they'll be exposed to the elements. Finally, remember that if the DIY route isn't a good option for you, choose home theater services from professional Geek Squad® installers who can handle any, and all, aspects of the installation.
