While some are content watching the big game on their 55 inch TVs, others may dish out a half-million to watch next year’s big game.
The new Panasonic TH-152UX1 reportedly known as the “world’s largest, 4K2K plasma display” carries the heavy price tag of approximately $500,000.
The almost larger than life TV spans to nearly nine 50-inch screens weighing 1, 272 pounds. One restaurant had to use a forklift to install the massive television into place.
Panasonic says the size isn’t the only plus. The 4K2K in its name refers to the plasma quality with a resolution of 4,096 by 2,160 pixels.
“In other words, it can deliver four times the resolution of a standard high-definition set,” said Rick Albert, a Panasonic vice president.
Albert said the TV is typically targeted to commercial business owners for displaying graphics and charts at large gatherings. However, Panasonic is not opposed to selling the massive screen to homeowners.
In fact, British luxury retailer Harrods began offering the TV set for sale in their stores when it first gained ground in 2009.
“Sales of the 152 have exceeded our expectations,” Albert said.
