TRIVIA

Released in November 1976 in the USA at the retail price of $169.95. It was launched as the Video Entertainment System, or VES, but when Atari released their VCS the next year, Fairchild renamed its machine.

The Channel F has the distinction of being the first programmable ROM cartridge–based video game console, and the first console to use a microprocessor.
