Sharp Nintendo Television (19SV111) – Gaming Historian


Sharp & Nintendo have a great business relationship, having worked together on the Game & Watch, Twin Famicom, & 3DS. One of their strangest collaborations, however, was the Sharp NES TV.

Big thanks to Collecting Retro for shots & information on the Sharp C1 TV (

    I love this guy. When watching Gaming Historian, it's like I'm watching the classic show Icon on the now extinct Tech TV t.v channel.

    I remember seeing this in a store once, long ago. I assumed until now that it wasn't officially licensed, partially because it just said "Game," and not "NES." I'm glad to learn more about it now.

    It’s also likely that those systems were not very popular with consumers but were quite popular with video game retailers as they could use those units as demo units in their stores! 🙂

    There was one spotted in Edinburg Texas in a video game store, the store is called Goliath Toys and Retro Games

    And now SHARP will make IGZO screens (better quality and use less power) for Nintendo Switches.

    Kinda defeats the purpose of an all in one, to not have a VCR. What would have been cool is two vcrs and a special cart for turning the NES into a video editor.

    Imagine if they had opted to go for a 13"er. The price point would have been low enough for adults to buy them for their kids, at that point.

    Can the TV unit of this play Sega Mega Drive and Super NES games if you separate it from the console?

    Crappy late 80s TV and an NES front loader… Totally worth $250+!

    TVs similar to that can be had for free now and were even being destroyed and refused by thrift stores because nobody wants crappy 80s/90s sets. They produce a worse picture than and wear out faster than earlier models.

    Technical BS as to why:
    Limited internal shielding from noise, imprecise components selecred purely for price, low quality tuners that receive poorly, and a thinner coat of barium on the CRT's cathodes. This barium is emitted at the same rate as older sets, but the tiny coating these received can lead to focus, brightness, color balance, and blooming issues down the line.

    I suspect many of these were not played often or for very long. They probably have a couple years in them yet.

    "Enn-Eee-Ess"… WHY?! Why do Americans seemingly delight in using more syllables than is necessary?! Over here we just treat NES and SNES as single-syllable words pronounced as written. I'm amazed you guys pronounce NASA as one word and not "Enn Ayy Ess Ayy"!

    Truthfully I feel that TV has one big flaw. It heats up to easily by the looks of things. I didn't see that good of ventilation towards the nes portion

    Just like the Sharp Nintendo TV I was also Introduced in September1989…The TV was STILL far more popular than me…. 🙁

    I thought the Mario+Duck Hunt cartridge was an official Famicom multi-cart… Maybe I'm wrong; IDK…
