The £1.2million telly! Top tip: Don't lose the remote!

The £1.2million telly! Just one of the new giants of the small screen that you won’t be able to pick up at Currys. Top tip: Don’t lose the remote!

If there is one thing we’ve all done more of in the past 18 months than ever before, it is watch films and TV, trading in cinema trips for the comfort of our own sofas.

But it is hard to get a big-screen blockbuster experience on a tiny telly. Now, thanks to a supersized television launched this week, you can watch in style on a staggeringly huge 325 in (27 ft) screen. All you need is £1.2 million — and a house the size of a cathedral.

The LG Extreme Home Cinema claims to come with ‘everything you need except the popcorn’ — although, quite frankly, for something costing five times as much as the average UK home, we’d want the popcorn thrown in too.

Unlike most other huge screens, which are made up of smaller modules joined together, this is a single screen using up to 33 million LEDs — tiny coloured lights — to deliver cinema-quality pictures, even in a well-lit living room.

Viewers can also watch different things at once on the same screen. It can display giant artworks when not in use, and the sound quality will blow your socks off.

It is hand-constructed and installed by specialists, and includes twice-yearly TV ‘health checks’ for three years.

Can’t quite stretch to £1.2 million? LG’s gargantuan gogglebox is just one of a new breed of tremendously big tellies with equally supersized price tags…. 

Sounds amazing 

Bang & Olufsen Harmony 88 inches, £47,589,

Created for those who like their expensive TVs to look just as swanky when switched off, this made-to-order television is hidden behind motorised wooden shutters, which open gracefully as the TV rises up and turns on.

While the 88 in display has more than 33 million OLED pixels, for showstopping picture quality, Bang & Olufsen claim to offer ‘the world’s best TV sound’. It’s still suggested you shell out up to £69,000 for extra, matching speakers.

Verdict: The Rolls-Royce of titan tellies.
