Having a TV in the car used to be a luxury. Nowadays they are much more common, especially with families that depend on them to keep kids from fighting in the back seat. If your car didn't come with a pre-installed TV, you can install one yourself with ease.


Step 1

Bring the TV to the car carefully. Make sure you open a car door that will allow the TV to fit through.
