We all love to kick back with our favorite television show after a long day's work, but for your business, TVs do much more than let your customers take a load off. They entertain, inform, and, in some cases, can be part of your facility's primary attraction.

Because they're so significant, when putting up televisions with the help of your audio-visual consultants, you have to consider a lot more than simply the amount you're purchasing.

There is such a thing as too many or too few televisions, but how they're placed has just as big an impact on your guests' opinions of your business as the number.

So, where's the best spot to put your new TVs to maximize their beneficial effects?

A Good Rule of Thumb: Avoid the Awkward Silences

If you imagine your guests, attendees, or clients frequently encountering strained pauses in their conversations in a given space, chances are that space could use a television.

Lapses in interaction usually mean nothing to do or talk about in that given part of your facility, hence the need for entertainment.

While those spaces will vary in purpose depending on your industry, they can include:

Dining Areas

Your employees work hard to keep your business running smoothly, and placing a TV in break rooms, lunch rooms, and dining spaces can help promote relaxation.

If the space is shared with the public, ongoing entertainment and news updates can keep clients and visitors happy while they enjoy their meals.


From busy corporations to hospital settings, the hallways are highly traveled spaces, making them fantastic TV locations.

Install them at an eye-catching level, and you can customize any ads, marketing, or information based on the type of business you have to offer important information and improve their experience.


One of the perks of having a lobby for your business is that it can introduce your company before the clients or attendees have an interaction.

It provides a waiting area or space to gain information, and with the right placement, installing a TV can be a great marketing or advisory tool.


All too often, areas like banks and airports are notorious for having lines of people waiting in queue. In the best-case scenario, the clients or customers will understand this process.

However, installing a TV can help alleviate some of the frustration because it can take their mind off waiting and make the experience easier for the individuals, helping them resolve their concerns or needs.

With the proper use of commercial televisions, you can make your facility a place where good times are aplenty and friendships come easy.

And when you get commercial DIRECTV on top of that, you can hand-pick from various channels what best can make that happen for your business.

For Informational Purposes, Place TVs Near Administrative Staff

The front desk is the first place curious customers will go for answers. If your staff is bogged down with answering many redundant questions, proper commercial TV installation can help take some of the load off.

A video wall can operate similarly and do so with more pizazz, glamour, and attention-grabbing prowess.

Of course, you can also spread televisions throughout your building so clients are never left without the information they need.
