Watch TV Outside

If you already have a covered deck or patio with furniture, an outdoor TV could be the perfect addition to complete the space if you spend a lot of time outside. You might want to use it for general entertaining, keeping your kids occupied as they play, or watching sports as you cook on a grill. The main difference between indoor setups versus ones specifically intended for outdoor use is that they are weatherized to protect against the elements and are generally far brighter. Here are five great models that will allow you to watch TV outside!
