Will strong sunlight heat damage my new TV?

I have recently bought a new TV (Samsung 65 In UE65RU7300KXXU.) Which is an LED screen.

 

The way my lounge is set-up, I live in a high-rise duplex with weird huge triangle shaped windows (so no curtains/blinds in this area) in the lounge and during the day, the sun blares directly through onto the BACK of the TV. (Always switched off.)

 

The back of the TV does get very hot; we're talking so hot if you touched it you would move away your hand. I never use it in the daytime though and wouldn't switch it on in that scenario.

 

Any cause for concern or not really?

Better safe than sorry. Moving TV is one option.

You can mount curtain holders to ceiling if wall is not an option... but where does one get super long curtains is another problem.

If you are not allowed or don't want to drill anything... Something like "freestanding adjustable room divider" would do the job to cover TV from too much sunlight.

Na I can't because the aerial connection is in the section where those windows are and cba paying for cable installation or extensions with wires running everywhere since I only rent the property rather than own. + No room for it. The TV is quite big with the TV unit.

Yeah I think a temporary board or divider behind the unit it might work, just might look a little weird.
