5. Samsung Class 105S9 Curved - £91,000
Kicking off the list is Samsung’s 105in 4K UHD smart TV, which, according to The Verge, packs 11 million pixels inside of its curved metal frame and wooden pack plate. The company will even send an engineer to your house to calibrate the screen and walk you through the features.
Unfortunately, the website notes, the $119,999 (£91,000) price tag doesn’t include a wall-mount kit, which is sold separately.
4. Samsung UA110S9 - £115,000
If you want a flat-panel Samsung 4K screen, this model is both large, at 110in, and stylish.
Tucked behind the easel-like frame are four “secret speakers”, says the company, boasting a total output of 120W. You can also divide the display into four smaller windows to watch different shows and browse the TV guide at the same time, should you wish. Additionally, you can use motion controls and voice commands to navigate the TV’s menus.
3. C Seed 262 - £408,000
The C Seed 262 is, as the name suggests, a massive 262in flatscreen that will no doubt take up a fair amount of room in your home.
It costs $539,000 (£408,000), reports the Daily Mail, with an addition optional charge of $38,500 (£29,000) for installation. The ultra high-resolution panel is equipped with six internal speakers, says the website, and offers a “5,000-to-one contrast ratio” for deeper blacks. It also has a motorised fabric cover that folds down to hide the screen when you’re not using it.
2. Panasonic 152ins Plasma - £600,000
While LED panels are available in TVs of all price points, Panasonic has gone for older plasma technology for its 152in flatscreen panel.
According to Gizmodo, the £600,000 price tag includes a compulsory site survey to ensure the 4K TV isn’t too big or heavy for your home, as well as a four-person installation team and a “five-year maintenance contract”.
1. Titan Zeus - £1m
Costing a cool £1m, the 370in Titan Zeus is the largest and most expensive 4K TV out there.
The Titan Zeus’s gigantic screen is filled with “65 billion colours”, according to What Hi-Fi?. It weighs nearly a tonne and is about the size of a football goal. The company also offers an installation service - but that costs extra.
