History
After the acquisition of the RCA Studio III Intellectual properties by the Conic Group (康力集團), Conic reached out to various subsidiaries and other affiliates to distribute their newest console in various countries. Soundic, one of  Conic subsidiary specialized in video games released two versions of the system. The first, Jeu TV Programmable MPT-02 by Hanimex, was distributed by Soundic in France under the Hanimex Brand. A second version of the console names the Victory Home TV Programmer was distributed directly by Soundic, but it is unclear in which specific region,

Release
Both this console and the Jeu TV Programmable MPT-02 by Hanimex, used the same mold. Both consoles are only the only RCA Studio III systems with detachable controllers that could be replaced by proper joysticks (sold separately). The main difference between this console and the Victory Home TV Programmer (MPT-02), is the latter console didn’t include any built-in games, instead these games were bundled on a pack-in cartridges. For an unknown reason, Soundic didn’t use the same strategy with the Victory Home TV Programmer. The console came bundled with the same 4 games  all other RCA Studio III systems had:a

  • Doodle
  • Pattern
  • Bowling
  • Black Jack 1 & 2

Games
13 cartridges were released for the system. All other RCA Studio II and RCA Studio III games are compatible with the system.
