When installing a TV outside, we recommend that your TV be installed in a location that is best suited for your viewing comfort. Once you make that selection, it will be important to evaluate how much shade and/or how much sun will fall on the front of the TV. Let’s compare partial sun and full sun.


Partial sun or indirect sun TV installations are defined as:

– Any areas of comfortable viewing; such as shade from trees, pergolas, umbrellas or overhangs.
– High ambient light void of any direct exposure of the sun on the TV screen.
– Areas of shorter periods of sunlight on the TV screen (1 hour or less) sheltered from long periods of direct sun hitting the TV screen.
