A $1.7m, 370-inch TV. And only 4 of these will be made.

As TVs get bigger, so do the price-tags. But now, a UK manufacturer is taking screen-sizes and the associated price-tags to astronomical new levels, with what it’s calling the “world’s first £1m ($1.7m) television”.

While that ‘world’s first’ claim may not be strictly true in itself, it’s certainly true that British TV maker Titan has a colossal (both in size and price) set on its hand. The 370-inch monster is roughly the size of a football goal, and it’s perhaps more apt describing this thing in meters – it’s 8m x 5m, for the record.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The TV sports 65 billion colors and weighs almost a tonne. And the cost actually excludes installation and delivery, which happens via a custom-built Hummer.

However, even if you do have £1 million lying around (plus installation and delivery), you only have a small window of opportunity to procure one of Titan’s ‘Zeus’ range of TVs. Of the four that are being made, two have been sold – one to a “British media millionaire”, while the other will sit on top of a hotel in Cannes, France. The two remaining will be made-to-order once they’ve confirmed your genuine interest – this conversation starts when you email them on: hello@titanscreens.com.

That all said, given these are being made to order, they could decide to build more if there is sufficient demand. But at £1 million a pop, well, how many more remains to be seen.
