When World War II was over black and white television sets became household items. Since then the ability and quality of televisions have reached incredible levels. Camera quality is able to capture pristine images and televisions are able to receive and replay images in true to life form. Now, you can even have an outdoor television if you want.
In 2013 79% of households worldwide owned a television set ( Source – “TVTechnology: The State of Television, Worldwide”. Retrieved 22 March 2015). considering the level of poverty in some countries, that is truly an amazing statistic!
So where to next? Well, the answer is very close to home, actually, it’s your backyard. In today’s’ post we are going to introduce the idea of moving your TV viewing…outside.
With everybody in the western world owning a television having one of your own isn’t that life changing, until you really make it into something different.
With SealTV enclosures you can give yourself that difference and bring about a brand new TV experience that will make TV interesting again.
Here are five examples of what you can expect from moving your TV outside with Seal TV.
1. Get Some Weather
In Australia, the best things happen outside. BBQs, cricket, beer gardens, alfresco dining. These are draw cards. Having an outdoor television makes sense for the Australian love of outdoors as well as enjoying some of the best weather on offer.
By making use of the outside space you already have, be it a deck, rock garden pool or yard by installing a TV, sealed and protected from all weather, vandalism, theft and fire, those balmy summer evenings and sunny Sundays can be fully appreciated and taken in.
Watch a movie under the stars, have a beer while watching sports, or a glass of wine and dinner with a home renovations show. Shifting your TV outside stops you from zoning out in front of the box, and brings it back to an engaging event.
That Australian’s love outdoors is proven by just how much outdoor space we give ourselves. It’s not just the dimensions of your property, it’s open space, which means you can take up more of it, be more flexible with how you arrange it, kick back and be more relaxed and also be out of the way of other family members if there is a big gathering.
Having that extra space opens up options as well for social gatherings either with family, friends or colleagues as well as livening up those traditional big occasions like Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries.
3. Talking Point
With so much rapidly changing in the world right now it’s hard to have something good for show and tell. An outdoor TV is a great talking point as well as eye catching.
It’s a TV, which as we know everyone has but it’s unique so you will get other people’s attention.
Not only will the television watching be special, but the outdoor space will be special as well. So often we see that outdoor space is underused. You wouldn’t have any regrets if you didn’t spend more time on your lounge, but most people have very real dreams of spending more time outside.
If you already have a fantastic outdoor space this will really be a centrepiece that will engage others and put you ahead of the curve. If you have space but it’s not up to scratch right now, this is a really good motivator to get that deck finished or the weeds pulled so you can actually live the lifestyle you had in mind when you moved in.
Since people are noticing your space and your amazing ability to watch television outside, that is definitely going to attract some jealously.
Sometimes it’s worth doing something extravagant just so people will hate on you. Otherwise, ‘Pimp my Ride’ would not be a very well broadcast TV show. If you want to make people green with envy and are not in a position to buy a Ferrari, this is a really amazing backup plan.
To take the envy up a notch, tag your photos @sealtv and #sealtv on Instagram and we’ll share them as well.
5. Work and Watch
We love our sports; the problem is we have other responsibilities as well.
We need to look after our health, mow the lawn, paint the deck, and hang the washing.
With an outdoor TV, we can do both. We can swim, ride a stationary bike, lay into the punching bag or maybe use that giant cross fit trainer outside while watching something that either motivates us to stay on our fitness plan, or distracts us from how buggered we feel after ten minutes of training. Mow the law, replant, pull weeds or water while watching the cricket? Priceless.
