Sharp introduces 90-inch TV, calling it the largest on the planet

This post has been corrected. See note below.

When your TV is longer diagonally than most people are tall, that's when you have the largest LED TV on the planet.

That's what Sharp has.

The Japanese company Tuesday introduced what it contends is the largest LED TV in the world, announcing and launching the 90-inch Aquos LED TV.

The TV is 4 feet tall, 8 feet diagonally and more than 6 feet wide with a depth of 5 inches. Sharp says it  weighs 141 pounds. 

In addition to its impressive screen size, its other features seem solid.

The TV has a 1080p resolution and is equipped with Sharp's SmartCentral service, which has apps for Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus and others. The TV is also 3-D ready and comes with two 3-D glasses.

As big as the screen is, so is its price. If you're interested in getting one of these sets and being the talk of the neighborhood, it's going to cost you quite a bit -- $10,999.99 to be exact.

That's a lot, but then again, you don't build the biggest TV out there and then sell it for pennies.

[For the record, June 19, 11:15 p.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly said the Sharp Aquas TV was 8 feet wide and 6 feet diagonally. Those measurements are vice versa.]
