  1. Doug Brewer says

    absolutely.

  2. John Berger says

    Sometimes channel 4 if you happened to have two such devices and the switch allowed for it!

  3. Xhamira D. says

    Blowing cartriges and resetting the console… The good ol' days. =]

  4. Hamza Al Hashemi says

    THE SWEET PAST 🙂

  5. Gregory Lynn says

    Pong looked pretty good on channel 3.

  6. Jay Neill says

    Geez! I remember that! LOL

    Or how about when you had to load games via cassette? 
    Good ol' Commodore VIC-20.. lol

  7. Dave Peterson says

    After throwing the little switch to move from rabbit ears reception to the game system.

  8. Duane Davis says

    Atari 2600, yep

  9. John Wesche says

    I remember that, my TV in my room was always set on channel 3, the ps1 hooked up. I was always playing FF7 and the first Tony Hawk game.

  10. James Jewhurst says

    I remember when you could switch between 3 and 4….mind blown Remember when shaking the cable did work….

  11. Liz E says

    Channel 4 for me. 🙂

  12. Earl Baker says

    Well nowadays I have to change it to the hdmi input

  13. Joseph Compton says

    LOAD"$",8

  14. Christopher Soliz says

    I still do.

  15. Duane Davis says

    Load "8", 1…something something…was this a commodore 64 thing?  Sounds familiar….

  16. Gregory Lynn says

    I remember the year we upgraded to the Atari 2600.

    The parents had stuck a couple games in our stockings and neglected to mark them as "Open Last."

    Oops.

  17. Mike Minor says

    And it was NOT Wide Screen or High Def!

  18. Paul Wilkerson says

    I remember those day's all to well.  Had a switch on the game to choose 3 or 4 in case 3 was a broadcasting channel, which it was in my area, so I played my games on channel 4

  19. Sean Paul says

    I had an old system that played on either 2 or 3 (pong style games, pong, tennis, hockey).  Most of the other consoles worked on 3 or 4.

  20. Joseph Compton says

    All Commodore! I started on a Vic-20, moved to a C64 aith a 1541 drive, then to a C128 with a 1571 drive.

    Ultimate Wizard and Elektra Glide!

  21. Jason Brabander says

    First system I had was the ol' Atari 2600!

  22. Johnny Zed says

    Yeah… and I remember the actual channel's signal sometimes leaking through, so you'd see a ghost of the show playing over the game graphics.

  23. Alejo Martinez says

    If you had a video game console, I used steal quarters from my older brothers to go play donkey Kong, and pac-man, and some others, at the places where they had them.  I would always loose, jejeje

  24. Duane Davis says

    Who here owned E.T. on the Atari 2600??? lol

  25. Jeff Chapman says

    and channel 4 for the vcr.

  26. Austin Johnson says

    i remember those days

  27. James Karaganis says

    Add me to the list of RF modulator users. I have an original Atari 2600 VCS with paddle controllers, joysticks and tons of games.

    Hm. Maybe I'll break it out and hook it up to our 73" and go retro for an afternoon.

  28. Nick Shvelidze says

    Bitch please, I had a TV without channels

  29. Bob Schlaefer says

    Intellivision Ha ha!!! Always channel 3!!

  30. Jeffery Thomas says

    I have no idea what you are talking about, I’m not old enough… (quietly shoves pong console under bed….)

  31. Dirk Talamasca says

    Totally!!

  32. Alexander Breedlove says

    still do >_<

  33. Tony Cacaccio says

    lmao, PERFECT +Amanda Blain

  34. Frank Merchant says

    Atari 2600 FTW!

  35. Joe Dutt says

    I was glad when they came out with a switch to toggle the video game or channel 3. We had a channel on 3 so I had to unhook the antenna wire each time until they came out with that little box. Forget to hook the antenna wire up after done once and there was no space invaders for a whole week.
    Joe

  36. Josh Cook says

  42. Jeffery Thomas says

    Don't forget the Commodore and TI systems and the book you had to type in to program the latest game to play.

  43. Patrick Saimesier says

    I used 4

  44. Jeffery Thomas says

    …and the good old cassete tape backup.

  45. Valdemar Ruiz Gonzalez says

    yea!! on Atari 2600

  46. Aaron Brown says

    I used 4 also, the RF interference from the local tower would bleed over into channel 3

  47. David Timmins says

    Yes, turning the dial Channel 3, those silly little antenna adapters that you had to screw on, turning the fine tune knobs to get rid of the static and snow. How did we ever survive?

  48. TONY R says

    I miss those days. Things were much more simple then.

  49. Andre Hughes says

    Yea I remember my Oddessy . That's pre Atari . Playing it on a 13 inch black & white t.v. because that was, the only t.v. we had.

  50. Keith Nelson says

  51. Anastacio Guerrero says

  57. Keith Nelson says

    okay, what is a CRT anyways?

  58. Vincent McMillen says

    Forgot about that! Remember… rewinding +Amanda Blain?? You could switch to channel 3 and play off a few rounds with Yoshi & Mario before the movie was set to go

  59. Mario Gomez says

    or cannel 4, good old times

  60. Anastacio Guerrero says

    Or using an uhf to coax converter.

  71. Keith Nelson says

    the atiri damn, that must have been like 50 years ago

  72. Russell Williams says

    If I recall there was a switch on the connector for channel 3 or 4.

  73. Glenn Coello says

    Recently I had the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice…the in-laws were trying to figure out how to get the vintage vcr working on a tv that had been wired years ago. I suggested "maybe it has to be on channel 3". Success!

  74. Keith Nelson says

  160. Nathaniel Yang says

  174. Hendryxz Mercado says

    Not just video games but also VCR (vhs/betamax) playback uses channel 3.

  175. Steve Lien says

    come to think of it, that's the first time i ever debugged anything! When the switch on the console was set on channel 4 instead of 3.

  176. Nathaniel Yang says

    Betamax I know that!!!!! Everybody Hates Chris helped

  177. Dain Perkins says

  184. Gianluca Grinzato says

    For me the pong like console was on the 33. It required tweaking with a screwdriver most of the times… now I'm missing the possibility to connect it on my smartv! Should be funny to see the face of my son… probably even more than when I connected the snes and he discovered that Mario is… of my age

  185. Kris Niedbalski says

    +Sean Paul I remember the Christmas when we got that system. We were so excited and we played that game until the wires leading to the knob controllers wore out. Do you remember when pong hit the bowling alleys and arcades? How about when pinball machines were only a dime to play? Those were the days…

  186. VALERIE ST JOHN says
