obviously the steam will be a problem getting into the telly..

Posted:Simple really, install it a room adjoining the bathroom, with a viewing window so you can see it from the bath. That solves all of the moisture/wiring/heat problems from the bathroom proper.

Sound is the easiest issue...turn up the tv really loud, or buy a radio that can tune into TV stations, and tune it to the station you want to watch. Or get a baby monitor style set up. Or a cheap intercom system and tape the button down. or... or...

Of course, you will have to buy a little bottle of ant-fog to coat the viewing window with. And it might be prudent to make the viewing window one-way glass so people don't look in on you, or any other occupants.

And don't forget the bath pillow with the suction cups on it, as your neck will get quite sore unless you have the tv at the perfect angle.

Posted:You can get waterproof speakers, so that'd solve the sound problem. Fishtank sealed with putty around holes for the wires would probably be easiest.

You'd also need a fancy bath that kept itself heated to a certain temperature (or just but a candle or 2 under the bath) because it you were watching a film the water would go cold.

Posted:They've actually invented a TV specially designed for the bathroom.
It's all sealed so water doesn't effect it and even has a heated screen so the screen doesn't mist up

Costs about 2000 though...

Posted:perhaps you could install several large mirrors to reflect the TV image through the bathroom door from its current position...
for sound....just turn the volume up...

you'll probably need a pair of binoculers to get a close image from that far though...
