14-inch model

The C1 NES TV (ファミコンテレビC1), also known as the My C1 Computer TV (マイコンピュータテレビC1), is a television produced by Sharp Corporation with a built-in licensed Nintendo Entertainment System. Originally released in Japan in 1983, the unit was released in the US in 1989 as the Sharp Nintendo Television. The C1 NES TV 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 an NES paired with a separate television. The unit was followed in Japan by the SF-1 SNES TV in 1990.

The system featured two in-built programs, JR GRAPHIC and TV NOTE, and in Japan it was shipped with the game Donkey Kong Jr./Donkey Kong Jr. Math (ドンキーコングJR./JR.算数レッスン) - at the time of its release the only licensed multicart made for the Famicom. This cartridge was unique to the Sharp C1 NES TV, and it featured a combination of Donkey Kong Junior and Donkey Kong Jr. Math (similar to the Mario-Duck Hunt package released with the original NES system).
