Perfect for partial-sun locations
The SB-S-55-4K adds the popular 55" screen size to SunBriteTV's Signature Series — the best-selling line of outdoor TVs in the world. Designed to live outdoors year-round, this handsome TV brings incredible 4K picture detail to your outdoor kitchen or patio, deck, or other outdoor living area.
The ultra-bright commercial-grade LED-lit panel is twice as bright as typical TVs. You'll enjoy brilliant, colorful images whether you're watching in afternoon sunlight or silvery moonlight. The Signature Series is intended for partial-sun applications. It will deliver the best viewing experience when placed under an awning, roof eave, or overhang, away from direct sun.
Beautiful and rugged
This TV's powder-coated aluminum exterior resists heat, cold, and moisture. A multi-fan airflow system keeps the unit cool and dry in temperatures up to 122°F. And this TV will keep performing flawlessly even when the temperature dips to -24°F. In the world of outdoor TVs, SunBriteTV is the leader when it comes to quality. Every one of their TVs is designed, engineered and built in California.
You'll find two 4K-compatible HDMI inputs for sources like an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, or a cable or satellite TV box. There's a standard PC input for your computer, too (great for streamed video or sharing vacation slideshows). SunBriteTV really thought of everything — even the remote control is weatherproof!

Features and Specs
Signature Series Outdoor TV: Designed for permanent outdoor installation in partial sun outdoor spaces (such as a partially enclosed patio, gazebo or covered outdoor area), the all-new SunBriteTV Signature Series introduces highly-upgraded features that are largely absent from other outdoor televisions - like a brilliant, direct-lit 4K UHD screen that is HDCP 2.2 compliant.
- At up to 3X the brightness of typical indoor televisions, a new, brighter 700-NIT commercial-grade anti-glare panel offers a prime viewing experience in the indirect sunlight and high ambient light conditions often encountered outdoors.
- Stylish, slim powder-coated rust-proof aluminum exterior for strength and durability.
- Temperature regulation system allows operation in low temperatures from -24°F and high temperatures up to 122°F (Storage temperature from -24°F up to 140°F).
- Innovative weather-tight cable entry system seals out moisture and allows for easy hook-ups.
