Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why can't I just install a regular television in my bathroom?
A: A regular television is designed for use in dry areas, such as your living room or bedroom. They are not waterproof.

For this reason they have a number of specific features: Built in cooling systems ensure that the TV does not overheat under the sun. Anti-reflective glass reduces glare caused by high ambient light.
