You can’t wait for football season to start and have your buddies over to your new outdoor living area as you will be having your new LG 50 inch LCD television set up with outdoor surround-sound to enjoy the games on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. A flat screen ceiling mount will be the perfect accessory to place your television where everyone can view it while sitting at your dining room table or in a covered living space where you have a sofa and club chairs. This will allow you to, not only, angle the television properly, but by purchasing a TV swivel option you will be able to point the television in most any direction.
A good idea when having your outdoor entertainment area built is to have the electrician, and or computer cabling expert come out and run all the necessary wiring and data set cables where you want the installation performed once the construction is complete. Take into consideration that you may want to have more than one television out there, or after having a television installed on the mount you may not find it as conducive as you once thought it would be to have it there.
Make sure you know about all the connections that will be required by reading your television owners manual or consulting the website of the TV maker, because you might find other options you want to add which will increase the usefulness of your outdoor television. You will also want to consider the fact you will probably be using either satellite or cable television and have the appropriate cables available, as well as any game consoles, media players, and hardwired computer attachments. You may want to read up about connecting your television to the Internet. This way you can surf the net on the big screen while sitting outside and enjoying a margarita or your beverage of choice in the evening.
Redundant cabling for ceiling mounts is not a bad idea, and if the cable goes bad you will have an alternate source to plug your television into so you can continue viewing your favorite sporting event or whatever DVD you want to enjoy with your family. Besides the cost of the ceiling mount, be prepared to shell out a few hundred extra dollars for all the necessary electrical cabling that will be required to make the installation neat in appearance.
