Samsung Will Sell Ultra HD Television for $150,000 in 2014

NyPo reports:

Samsung said a 110-inch TV that has four times the resolution of standard high-definition TVs is going on sale for about $150,000 in South Korea.

The launch Monday of the giant television set reflects global TV makers’ move toward ultra HD TVs, as manufacturing bigger TVs using OLED proves too costly.[...]

Samsung said it received 10 orders for the latest premium TVs from the Middle East. Previously, the largest U-HD TV made by Samsung was 85-inch measured diagonally.
The ultra-HD TVs are also known as “4K” because they contain four times more pixels than an HD TV.


  1. At that price I better be able to talk to the actors on the TV and have them answer me back. lol

  2. And the bad news is there's still nothing on worth watching.

  3. Thanks to innovation and what's left of the free market, the price of super HD will drop 10 fold in a couple of years. Anyone remember those 1200$ blue ray players? You can now get a way better one for 59$.

    1. I agree. I love that oil money exists to give Samsung the capital to bring down the cost of making these.

      It does make me wonder if there is anything specifically made for that format yet. I imagine there's some graphics hardware for PCs that might support the format but even then it'd be like watching analog programming on an HDTV.

      Sorry to nerd up the comments section.
