Video Game History: CVC Gameline (Atari 2600)

Cvc Gameline online games for the Atari 2600

The CVC Gameline was a device that looked like an Atari 2600 cartridge but would plug into the console and use the phone jack to download video games. You would download games for a fee, and have temporary use of them. After it was gone you had to pay to re-download them.
