Our Top Picks

Best Overall: SunBriteTV Outdoor TV 55-inch Veranda

With its bright LED screen and brilliant, ultra-HD resolution, the SunBrite Verdana takes our top spot for outdoor TVs. The 55-inch display features 3840 x 2160 resolution and 4,000:1 contrast ratio. Additionally, it comes with a set of 20-watt speakers and offers connectivity options for both HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 to ensure maximum compatibility with 4K streaming services. The TV itself is made with a durable aluminum casing that can withstand rain, snow, dust, insects, and extreme temperatures (from -24° to 104° F).

The SunBrite’s stunning picture quality is its strongest asset, but that's clearly not the only draw. It makes for a great addition to your outdoor patio or deck, where you can enjoy the sun and fresh air without leaving the couch.

The SunBrite TV 43-inch Veranda Series is another top pick due to its large screen, 4K HD Ultra resolution and affordable price. Its aluminum casing makes it durable for permanent outdoor installation. It'll be protected against extreme temperatures (as low as -24 degrees and as high as 104 degrees Fahrenheit) and various harsh weather, including rain, snow, dust, and other elements.

The SunBrite TV 43-inch Veranda Series features a high brightness screen with an LED backlight that makes it 30 percent brighter than indoor TVs. This outdoor TV is optimal for areas like a patio or gazebo and is perfect for any BBQ or festivities that you’d have in the backyard.

Best Smart TV: Skyvue 55-inch Partial Sun Series Outdoor TV

This 55-inch 4K TV from Skyvue is built for the outdoors — with 600 nits of brightness on the LED video panel, it's twice as bright as an indoor TV, perfect for shaded or partially-shaded outdoor areas where normal TVs are easily "outshone." It's also made with a weathertight aluminum body (rated IP55 for moisture resistance) that can hold up to the elements, extreme temperatures, and even salty sea air. That ensures its ultra-high-definition 4K screen looks as good as ever, no matter what the weather throws at it. This TV also has built-in 20W speakers and HDR technology to heighten the contrast and depth of color for a truly dazzling picture.

But perhaps the greatest selling point on this TV, beyond its tough-as-nails construction and 4K picture quality, is the state-of-the-art Google Chromecast smart features. The interface is the same as those used on indoor Vizio TVs, giving you on-screen access to all your favorite streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video, as well as music streaming services like Spotify and Pandora. It even has Amazon Alexa and Google Home compatibility, which allows you to control the TV and search for shows using voice commands.

The internet-connected smart features on this TV make it an all-around media powerhouse, perfect for queuing up your favorite show with a simple spoken request, or putting on your favorite playlist while you fire up the grill.
