Samsung unveils 'The Wall,' a massive 219-inch, or 18-foot, TV

If you're like many Americans, you probably wouldn't mind having a bigger TV.

CES is a big TV show. The display panel can roll up inside the base at the bottom.

According to CNN, the television uses MicroLED technology, which is supposed to create a brighter image using less energy. Who really needs an 8K TV? That puts the U9F on par with Samsung's Q9FN QLED, which debuted in 2018 and became one of the best TVs of previous year.

Last year Samsung released the first 85-inch 8K QLED TV, which goes for a cool $15,000. The other notable TV manufacturers also had their 8K TVs on display. It is powered by the company's second-gen Alpha 9 processor.

Whether you're a die-hard follower of the National Basketball Association, or you're locked into the National Football League year after year, chances are high you spend way too much time in front of your television. Not a big show on TV, but it's a big show for TVs, especially big TVs.

Samsung also expanded its 8K TV series with the introduction of a 98-inch model. The previous one was also Samsung's own 85-inch model launched past year.
