I haven't been able to access the Shop Channel at all tonight. I click it, get to the loading screen and then nothing happens. First time I left it five minutes, second time I tried I left it ten minutes, and third time I left it for half an hour. Each time it didn't get past the loading screen.
I thought it might be my internet, but that is okay. Then I thought it could be that my Wii isn't picking up the wireless signal, but I accessed Forecast Channel and Internet Channel just fine. I tried the Shop Channel again just now, and it still isn't working.
Really frustrating, because I purchased a classic controller earlier today and I was looking forward to downloading something retro and playing.
Has anyone else encountered problems with the Shop Channel in the past few hours?
