Washington: 'Big Hoss' is set to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest TV in the world.

The TV has been switched on in Texas to the delight of thousands of 'Duck Dynasty'-loving racing fans, CNET reports.

According to CNET, the 'Big Hoss' TV was switched on for the first time in front of a live audience at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

The screen, built by Panasonic, measures 218 feet wide by 94.6 feet tall, meaning its is longer than Boeing's biggest 767 (the 400ER), and taller than a seven-story building.

The TV has a 140-degree viewing angle so it can be seen by people in a large swath of seats at the Speedway.

A crew of five people is needed to operate it from within the attached control room.

The screen is also allegedly able to handle wind speeds of up to 120 mph.

The screen was powered on by Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage, who used a giant remote control prop to get the job done, the report added.
