September is no time to abandon your backyard! It’s been a brutal Summer here in Texas, so Take it Outside now that temperatures are beginning to drop.
We’ve got the perfect Sunbrite television for your Outdoor Autumn Oasis. Call Howie Foreman at Connections Plus on 972-524-6225. He’ll hook you up… literally.
Summer is almost here and our thoughts are filled with living around the pool or leisurely dinners in the cool evening air on the patio. Why not bring along an outdoor TV and make a movie night of it, or for the Dad’s, keep up with the game or PGA golf while keeping an eye on the kids?
If you want to install a TV on a covered patio or in a similar outdoor setting, you have two options. First, you can try using a regular TV, only to have the set damaged by temperature fluctuations, moisture from rain and condensation, and exposure to bugs and the elements. The better option is to get a TV built for outdoor use. The SunBriteTV Veranda is a 55-inch 4K TV that offers protection against the elements and 4K picture in one set. You’ll pay extra for the weatherproofing and optimizations for outdoor viewing, but it’s a better deal than burning through a standard 4K TV in a matter of weeks.
Design and Durability
The SunBriteTV Veranda is built for a very specific set of circumstances. The outdoor television is designed to bring 4K display quality to full-shade outdoor environments. Think covered patios, uninsulated garages, poolside cabanas and screened gazebos. As such, the construction of the set is heavy-duty, with a sealed aluminum shell serving as weather-sealed armor against rain, snow and extreme temperatures. The Veranda can operate in temperatures ranging from minus 24 degrees Fahrenheit to 104 degrees and can be safely stored in temperatures of up to 140 degrees.
The metal exterior looks sharp, thanks to a black powder-coat paint job, but the real impressive stuff is the weatherproofing. The chassis is sealed against moisture, including a protective closure around the AV inputs in back.
The locking door cinches shut with two thumbscrews and is ringed with a thick foam-rubber gasket that allows cables to snake in and out of the compartment, but seals around the cables to protect the actual ports from moisture. Built into the bottom bezel is a sealed IR sensor for the remote control.
The TV measures 50 x 29 x 3.86 inches and weighs 51 pounds, which is heavy for a TV of this size, but not surprising when you take the metal exterior into account. The TV is compatible with 400-millimeter VESA wall-mounting hardware, or you can opt for SunBrite’s own all-weather stand. The optional stand is also made of heavy-gauge, powder-coated aluminum and provides a rock-solid base for the 55-inch Veranda TV.
For improved visibility in indirect sunlight – the TV is meant to be used in shaded outdoor installations – the brightness has been ramped up considerably.
Open up the weather-sealed compartment in back and you’ll find four HDMI connections, two USB ports, an RF connector for over-the-air broadcasts and both component and composite video inputs. A digital optical port gives you output for surround sound.
The SunBriteTV Veranda has no internet connectivity built in, and doesn’t include any smart TV functions. If you want to stream online content, Howie at ConnectionsPlus can easily set that up for you. Call Howie on 972-524-6225.

All SunBriteTV televisions share the features that make them the right choice for outside use like brightness many times brighter than indoor televisions and all are water proof with weatherproof cable connections and valid warranty for outdoor use.
The model you select depends on where you plan to your outdoor television. There’s the Veranda Series that are made for use in full shade like covered patios, porches and sun rooms. Then there’s the Signature Series, designed for partial sun or areas with high ambient light like pergolas or partially covered deck. Finally, there’s the Pro Series. These SunBriteTV models thrive in full sun and active areas such as poolside and full-sun, outdoor seating areas. They also have anti-glare, heat-resistant screens with a protective tempered glass shield.
