Philips' 21:9 Cinema TV: does not come with popcorn

The TV – which Philips claimed is the world’s first set able to offer a true cinematic display in your living room, thanks to its 21:9 aspect ratio – will hit UK shops in June.

But, as you’d probably have guessed, the set’s a wee bit more expensive than the average cinema ticket. It will set you back a cool €4000 (£3535/$5044).

If you have the cash to splash though, you’ll get a 52in viewing area and Philips’ established Ambilight lighting system that projects light onto the wall behind the telly coloured according to on-screen action. ®
