Sega Channel

In case you don't know what it is, Sega Channel was this game downloading service for the Sega Genesis from the mid-1990s.

On Sega Channel, you can download 50-70 Genesis games for twenty-five cents a pop, at a monthly fee of $14.95 (depending on location). Some games not released in the U.S. were featured on Sega Channel as "SC Exclusives"

Stanley B. Thomas Jr., the former vice president of Time Warner, headed the service.

Plus, the music for Sega Channel was composed by John Baker of Toejam and Earl fame.

In addition to the games, there was also a news bulletin, parental settings, tips and hints, and contests, too!

There's all sorts of prizes one could win on the Sega Channel. Genesis games, accessories, arcade machines, BMX bikes, projector TVs, etc.

Not only did they do Sega Channel in the United States, but also in Canada (through Shaw Cable), Chile (on the now-defunct Metropolis Intercom company), some parts of the United Kingdom (through certain UK cable services), Argentina (through Cablevisión TCI), Australia (through the Austar and the now-defunct Galaxy cable companies), and believe it or not Japan, as evidenced by this picture of a Japanese Sega Channel adapter below.



Sega Channel went ka-put in 1998.

Interesting, Zero never knew of this... at least, not that he remembers.

yeah. Why would you run down to the store and buy $2500 worth of Genesis games when you could download games for $0.25 a pop?

Didn't know about that service, what a steal it was in the day.
