Excellent question. I have by no means a home theater expert. I honestly know nothing about what goes into mounting tons of TVs throughout your house. I could tell you how I have done it though. We have five TVs in our house one in the main living room one in the den and one in each one of the three bedrooms. Three of them are hardwired from the basement where the main electrical control box for the AT&t fiber is, and the other two all over Wi-Fi with the Wi-Fi modem centralized in the middle of the house. I have entertained the idea of mounting a TV in the backyard, but honestly I just don't want to deal with weatherproofing it and dealing with mounting it in the first place even though there is a very nice gazebo area in the backyard problem with that one is not sure if I would have good enough Wi-Fi connection all the way to the backyard and I definitely don't want to deal with hard wiring all the way back there and I also don't want to buy a new Wi-Fi modem LOL. Sometimes I just go with if it ain't broke don't fix it type of deal plus I would have to furnish or deal with making it comfortable enough back there for us all to actually sit down and watch TV outside another huge undertaking with setup and furniture and cost and labor time and energy that I just do not actually want to deal with another end result would be very nice. I think some TVs in the bathroom would be rather easy mama just get a tiny little TV with a remote I'll get up to Wi-Fi on DirecTV just need one power cord if you want to get fancy go through the drywall which again I don't want to deal with either doing it yourself or having electrician hook it up. So yeah I guess to answer your question it depends on how the house was built for me having it centralized in the basement allows me to draw hardwire in any direction and then punch a simple Grom at home through floor open to the room I want to hardwire. My name PC room has a qn90b, my main living room has a qn90a, both of these displays are leaps and bounds ahead of any of the other older Samsung TVs we have. There is a massive and I mean massive noticeable difference in the black levels color vibrancy brightness everything.
I wasn't wondering how, I was wondering why.
If you have cameras on your house, having a display in several rooms just to show the array of camera feeds could be nice. Then if you wanted another tv/screen for entertainment, media, that would be another in some rooms so that'd be 2 in some rooms just for that. I have a laptop and a tablet though so I can have screens for work or enterntainment even if I'm at the kitchen table with no other mounted screens anywhere.
Hallways, (at least corridors rather than seating areas, nor sure what you meant) and bathrooms is a bit much. However if you find yourself using your phone on the toilet you are probably exposing it to some micro particles on occasion so a shielded screen in some scenarios might actually make sense. Idk how you'd navigate it though if it was covered lol. I've seen some in restaurant/bar bathrooms on a constant shared feed so that people don't miss parts of a sports game so maybe that kind of live action zealotry comes into play with some people.
I didn't see any cameras or anywhere in his house where a camera feed was hooked up so I'm guessing it was an obsession with a sports game or something. Yes a hallway only for walking from room to room like a corridor. Those ones were the weirdest to me. Like he couldn't walk 5 seconds down the hallway without missing his show? And yeah he had TVs on both ends of the hallway so he could see them walking to the bedrooms from the living room or from the bedrooms to the living room.
