Football season is right around the corner, and the smell of Buffalo wings is in the air. Football is not just a game you sit on the couch and enjoy; it’s an event! For those who can’t make it to the game, you need to bring that same excitement and energy to your home every Sunday. Want to know how to bring your game day experience to a whole new level?
Imagine watching the game in your own backyard, barbecuing with family and friends while the kids play catch. This is the next best thing to being at the game. Chances are you already have a grill and patio furniture; all you’re missing is the perfect outdoor television. Before you run out and purchase a TV for your backyard tailgate, there are a few things you should know.
An indoor TV won’t cut it. Myth is that you can use an indoor TV outside, but doing so will likely void your warranty and you will end up with an overheated TV. TV’s are designed to work within a certain temperature range; start pushing the edges of that range and bad things are going to happen. The operating temperature of an outdoor TV has a much larger range than an indoor TV. Unlike indoor TV’s, SunBriteTVs, the leading manufacturer of outdoor television, can range from as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit to as high as 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
Outdoor televisions are built with an exterior design to protect internal components from rain, dust, insects, humidity and salt air. These televisions are made to be installed permanently outdoors. Indoor TVs are not.
Once you have decided on the screen size; pick a spot in your yard for installation that isn’t facing directly into the sunlight. An outdoor TV is not much different in this way to an indoor TV. SunBriteTVs come with variable backlighting that allows the brightest picture possible during the day and dimmed for viewing at night.
Obviously there are other benefits to purchasing an outdoor television than just watching football games. Do you remember Drive-in Theaters? You can replicate that same experience with a movie night in your own yard! Watch your favorite sitcom or try your next workout video outside instead of indoors. . . there are so many ways to appreciate outdoor television viewing!
