Even if your Airbnb listing is located in a popular city or peaceful mountainside, you cannot forget to add in-home entertainment for your guests. While many guests will leave the house to explore, others will want to stay inside and cozy up to binge-watch the latest Netflix show. Regardless of your Airbnb location, you need the latest entertainment setup to cater to all guests, including the best TV for your Airbnb.
When you set up an Airbnb listing, we recommend that you start by matching all the amenities a standard hotel room can offer (minus the resort-style pool and daily housekeeping, obviously!). Central to every hotel room is the TV. When you stay in any hotel, you know you can expect a TV and basic cable to be present.
The same idea needs to be present at your Airbnb location. Many listings boast large entertainment systems, which is great but unnecessary for every listing. Be mindful of the type of guests you are looking to host while also offering up-to-date amenities. Offering at least one TV on your property will increase your bookings and guest ratings once they leave.
Our pick for the best Airbnb TV in 2023 would be any size and model of a Roku TV. Roku TVs offer streaming capabilities while being extremely user-friendly. Many brands, including TCL, PHILLIPS, and JVC, sell TVs with Roku features.
This isn’t our typical product review article because there’s no competition as far as we are concerned about the best TV for your Airbnb. Our favorite TV brand supporting Roku is TCL. TCL offers TVs of various sizes to complement any room, and budget, in your Airbnb.
One of our favorite things about Roku TCL TVs is that guests can control your TV via the Roku app. If guests misplace the remote, they aren’t entirely out of luck. Things get lost frequently in your Airbnb, and the Roku app is an excellent option until you can purchase a replacement remote on Amazon.
Guests can control your Roku TCL TV via Alexa. Guests can turn on or off the TV without picking up the remote. Guests can also tell Alexa to turn on Netflix or other streaming channels. This added feature is ideal for guests with disabilities.
Here are a few pro tips to make the most of your Airbnb TV.
Just because you have Roku TVs with the capability to stream media, does not mean that you need to offer logins for the sites. Utilizing Roku Guest Mode, guests can log in to whichever streaming service they like with their own logins. You can set your Roku TVs to guest mode, so the logins aren’t saved after their check-out date. Be sure to check each TV to be sure they are logged out between guests, or ask your cleaning professional or co-host to include that in their service.
Since your TCL TV will significantly reduce the number of additional devices you have for streaming media, you’ll be able to mount your TV to the wall. Purchasing a wall mount is easy with Amazon, and you can even hide your cables to make for a clean look for your entertainment system.

If you already have a nice new-ish TV, you can get away with keeping it. You don’t necessarily need the best Airbnb TV in 2023, but you at least need streaming services. To add streaming services to your TV, you can purchase a Roku Express.
Remember that adding a Roku Express or other streaming device means guests will have to figure out how to switch inputs on the TV to get to the streaming features, whereas with the Roku TCL, everything is nicely integrated and user-friendly. You may wish to include instructions on how to operate the TV and streaming services in your Welcome Book or with a simple card near the remotes.
Make it a goal to slowly update your TVs with newer models as you gain more bookings. Doing so can improve your guest ratings and rebooking status.
Offering the best Airbnb TV is vital for any listing. As a host, you want your guests to be comfortable and have all the amenities of similar lodging options. Adding a TCL Roku TV to your listing can increase ratings and provide entertainment for guests after a day of adventures.
