How to Create the Perfect Tailgate Environment in Your Home
Prepare for the NFL and College Seasons with an Outdoor TV installation
Whether you don’t want to deal with hours of traffic or don’t want to spend ten dollars on watered-down beer, sometimes watching football in your Frisco, TX home is the best option. It also creates a better bonding environment for friends and families if you decide to host a watch-party instead of congregating at the stadium where it's hard to talk. With that in mind, we offer up some tips on becoming the ultimate tailgate host and show you how our outdoor TV installations are pivotal to those plans.

Set Out Your Delicious Delicacies
Come up with your favorite recipes from sloppy joes to all-American hot dogs to match the theme. Add a novelty cocktail and make sure you have enough beer and wine for everyone invited. Once you're ready, set out all your food and drinks on the patio. If you don't have enough room, bring out some additional chairs. Link up your outdoor televisions to your sound system, so people can hear the game anywhere in the patio or backyard while they eat.
Make Sure You’re Ready to Watch
There’s nothing worse than preparing all the food and drinks for your party then realizing you don’t get the game on your outdoor TVs. With a professional installation, you can make sure all your sources—streaming, cable, or satellite—are easy to pull up. The only work left for you is researching ahead of time where the game is playing so you can pull it up quickly from a remote or even mobile app.
Allow for a Large Audience
By working with a professional, you can find the ideal location for your television to allow for the most viewers. For example, the higher you place your television, the more people can watch even if they’re further away. With outdoor TVs as big as 84 inches available, you can even recreate a theater experience in your backyard or patio for an unforgettable night with friends and family.
Create Additional Outdoor Activities
We know not everyone may be as invested in Dak Prescott's stats as you, so it's important that you create some non-football related activities. You can have a pool party going on in the background, linked to a different zone in your outdoor sound system so they can listen to music without interrupting the game. You can also have competitions in the backyard—including a short touch-football game, to keep everyone entertained before the game starts. Have music or pre-game shows playing through your landscape speakers to add to the atmosphere.
Prepare for the Weather to Turn Sour
Don’t let your tailgate go to waste if it starts raining or it gets too cold once the sun sets. Have a system in place to migrate inside if needed. Set up an additional table and bar inside for people to congregate. Link your outdoor TV to your home AV so you can easily pull up the game where you left off in your living room. From your smartphone, you can prepare the TV, so the game is all ready for you when you get there.
