The Sharp Nintendo Television (often described as the C1 NES TV; originally released for Japanese markets as My Computer TV C1(マイコンピュータテレビC1,Mai Konpyuta Terebi C1?)) is a television produced by Sharp Corporation with a built-in licensed Famicom. Originally released in Japan in 1983, the unit was released in the US in 1989. The C1 is notable for having provided the high-quality screenshots displayed in video game magazines of the period, due to its having slightly better picture quality than a Famicom or NES paired with a separate television. The concept was followed up in Japan by the Super Famicom-based SF1 in 1990.
The C1 is a television set developed jointly by Sharp Corporation and Nintendo that features a built-in Famicom system. The system was licensed by Nintendo and was released in 1983 to Japanese markets, and supported until 1989. It was noted for having a clearer picture quality than the original setup requiring a Famicom and composite video connection. For this reason, screenshots featured in video game magazines of the time were often taken from the C1.
The system featured two built-in programs, JR GRAPHIC and TV NOTE, and in Japan it was shipped with a multicart containing Donkey Kong Jr. and Donkey Kong Jr. no Sansuu Asobi. At the time of its release, this cartridge was unique to the C1 and represented the only licensed multicart made for the Famicom.
