Samsung today announced the launch of a new "Terrace" 4K TV, which is designed to be used outdoors. The Terrace features an IP55 water and dust resistance rating, so it's able to hold up to light water exposure.

Like most newly released Samsung TVs, the Terrace TV includes support for the Apple TV app, which allows users to access Apple TV content like iTunes movies and TV shows, and Apple TV+. It also supports AirPlay 2, allowing it to interface with other AirPlay 2 devices, and Apple Music is available.

The Terrace offers a brightness level of 2,000 nits, so it works even when it's bright and sunny outside. Samsung says the TV is ideal for sports fans with a 4K resolution and a high motion rate of MR240. There's an optional Terrace Soundbar that offers dynamic sound, and it supports Bixby, Alexa, and soon, it will work with Google Assistant.

Pricing on the Terrace TV starts at $5,000 for the 65-inch model, with a 75-inch option available for $6,500. There's also supposed to be a 55-inch model, but it is not yet available for purchase. Pre-orders can be made on Samsung's website.

Um.... how much?

One can buy a decent 60” tv for under $500, cover it with a baby crib waterproof liner when not in use, and replace it every 3 years for the next three decades for that price.

oh, but it’s Samsung. I get it. Sony will have their $12,000 version out next month.

It's main feature is the 2k nit brightness, not the waterproofing - that's what you're paying for...

And people think Apple is out of touch.

Having said that I’ve attended tennis events that have covered areas set up where they serve beer/food and show matches on TVs. I suppose something like this would work well in that situation.

The main photo just makes me sad.

1 Being outdoors should be a time to recharge and enjoy the natural world not stare at a screen.

2 It's supposed to be a family dinner but no one is paying any attention to anyone else.

Don't get me wrong: I'm a digital junkie but even I try to spend a few hours a day looking at the outside world and connecting with others (human and animal).

(Slinking off to the pool.)

Okay this just seems insane to me. Must really be meant for a climate with very little rain. Would never be a thing here in Denmark.

Anyone have one or considered it?
Great for areas with indoor/outdoor living. I could see this being popular in the midwest America area

That first picture though....Million dollar home...custom exterior fireplace, and a $99 Weber charcoal grill....that adds up. 🤪

Yeah, it should be an overpriced egg thing.

And people think Apple is out of touch.

They just kept the tuner and loaded the consumer firmware into one of their commercial signage displays and changed the marketing. Basically a minimal-work product that enhances their brand by saying they can make any kind of TV.

Ha....that first photo: Dad is burning something on the BBQ while watching the game....daughter Suzi is stabbing at salad caveman style.....son Jimmy is trying to turn the pages of a book but his Ritalin is impeding progress.....and mom Tiffany is reaching for her fourth vodka and tonic.

The third photo: Tiffany is thinking, I should have married Brad rather than this useless idiot.

If you don't have one, get one. My home could be a million and I would still have an old kettle to cook on. Have one now, had two but gave one away.

Looking at building a house that has 17'x17' covered patio... this could actually be really cool there.

I'd want an easy way to move it in/out of the house... I live too far north for guests to be sitting outside year round. Probably November-March will be too cold to use the patio, so it'd be cool if I could easily move it to somewhere in the house for those months.

While that might be Tiffany in the third photo, it's definitely not Dad based on the hair. So third photo is more like: I hope Dad doesn't come home early and ruin my time with Brad :)

I need 4 of these for my house in the Hamptons.

Wait, first I need a house in the Hamptons.

I don't think the sort of folks that regularly put TVs outdoors are too concerned with the IP rating or app connectivity. They have "someone" do it for them.

I knew someone who was a personal assistant for a super rich person. It was literally that.

The rich client would say something like, "It'd be nice to have a TV here, and a jacuzzi tub." casually and the assistant would make it happen. Client didn't care about cost. $20K here, $50K there was nothing to this guy.

Except for his employees' salaries, apparently. He ended up quitting after being denied a raise.

Funny, that.
