The summer is almost here – and what better way to binge on boxsets and organise a movie night with your household than sitting outside in the sun. Obviously, with the UK’s unpredictable weather, placing your current TV outdoors isn’t the best idea, however, a new release from Samsung means you can finally watch your favourite shows out in the open …regardless of whether or not some unexpected showers dampen things.
The South Korean firm has just announced the release of its new “The Terrace” gogglebox, which has been designed to survive the elements. In fact, Samsung boasts that it’s been made with the weather in mind. The Terrace sports an IP55 rating which means it has durability against water and dust.
Available in 55-, 65- and 75-inch models, The Terrace fits perfectly with any outdoor living space and delivers Samsung’s industry-leading QLED 4K display technology and Smart TV features. If you’re worried about not being able to see what’s on the screen then Samsung also has that covered.
Not only does The Terrace feature an anti-reflective coating but the 4K display provides a brightness level of 2,000 nits, ensuring that users will be able to enjoy content in vivid picture quality, even in broad daylight.

“Today, new lifestyle habits and trends are evolving faster than ever before. Consumers are using screens to work from home, exercise using online platform, stay in touch with loved ones, and engage with many other activities. Screen should also be evolving in line with these lifestyle changes,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
“With the introduction of The Terrace, we are thrilled to transcend the connected living room experience to the outdoors by delivering on engineering feats and content experiences that only Samsung can achieve.”
A consumer model of The Terrace is launching in the U.S. and Canada today, followed by rollouts to Germany, Australia, New Zealand and other regions later this year. Along with that TV, you can also annoy the neighbours with The Terrace Soundbar.
Also water-resistant, Samsung says this speaker delivers high-quality sound and a deep and clear bass sound from its built-in woofers. Whether the remote control is similarly water-tight, Samsung hasn’t said. So, many just to be safe, you should make sure that stays in your pocket when the downpour starts.
There’s no word on a UK release but hopefully, it comes to these shores in the coming months.
