Nintendo announces that the Internet Channel for Wii, will now be available to download for free.
Until now, the Internet Channel was available to download from the Wii Shop Channel for 500 Nintendo Points. However, as Nintendo encourages all customers and their families to enjoy browsing the internet from their sofas, the Internet Channel can now be downloaded for free!
To download the new Internet Channel, simply select START at the lower right of the screen. This will take you to the Wii Shop Channel, where you can download the software.
For those who have previously purchased the Internet Channel for 500 Wii Points, a special offer will be available from late October until the end of December 2009. During this time period, you will be able to download a Virtual Console NES title worth 500 Nintendo Points for free!
When the exact time period for this offer is finalised, a notification will be sent out to you via the Wii Message Board.
The Internet Channel has also received an update which includes a newer version of Adobe Flash, which makes even more website content available to you.
