Don't have a TV outside, but when I'm BBQ it would be nice to be able to watch the football games. That's about the only comment I guess i can make.

I camp in some remote areas. On a warm summer night it's nice to watch a MLB game by the fire and have a drink with friends. Camping is about good times. The outside tv is just an additional entertainment tool for those time when it's appropriate

Yes, we watch Tv outside at night (smoke and bugs permitting), Monday through Friday nights usually. We spend 4-5 months away from the city life and watching Tv out side in the mountains after all the old snow-bird farts (I'm just an old fart) have turned in for the night (after sunset), is great. Mostly watch the RAYs baseball games and some movies off of Apple Tv. All comes to an end on the weekends when the campground gets more campers that like to light up a nice fire using their wet wood and I have to head for the inside, or take a trip to the hospital... lungs can no longer handle any kind of smoke. For most of the regulars here when the sun goes down the lights go out..

I am not a big fan of listening to music while camping either. And I am a BIG audio\videophile at home.

I enjoy watching a little TV outside. Sports, news, movie its all good. We tend to travel more now than just camp for the weekend, so I enjoy a little TV after a long day of sightseeing. It is what makes you happy.

Being in my OFF-ROAD POPUP camper all the time I really like the idea of keeping tabs on the Weather storms etc... Especially the wind storms... This is usually the last thing i do each evening to check on what might be heading my way...

This is with my inside TV setup however haha... I'm also a big fan of the WX RADIO with alarms setup.

We have a 40" LED in our front cargo bay and the 32" in the outdoor kitchen of our 375BHFS that we watch anytime the weather is decent. Then again, we have a seasonal site that we spend nearly 100 nights a year at and enjoy all our creature comforts.

We camp over New Years every year. Watching football outside has become part of the tradition. Kids are now getting into the "Ball Drop" so that was watched outside this year too. The rest of the year we don't typically set up a TV.

I do love those who say TVs defeat the purpose of camping; but somehow RVs, Generators/Solar Systems, Plumbing, HVAC, Refrigeration, etc don't.
