If your widescreen TV is just not wide enough and you're always looking for bigger and better home entertainment, Philips is about to bring just that to you with their new 21:9 aspect ratio widescreen TV.

The Philips Cinema 21:9 TV is made for epic movies. The 21:9 aspect ratio (about 2.33:1) will mean virtually no black bars at the top or bottom of your screen when you pop in your favorite Blu-ray.

But beware: Those bars will be back if you switch to 16:9 or, God forbid, 4:3.

The Philips Cinema 21:9 is due in stores by spring, and we'll see its final pricing by the end of next month. Start saving now, however, because this one will surely cost a pretty penny.
