No you do not need Wii-points cards to go online, the points cards are to purchase VC games and soon the Wii-ware games, aswell as some have said, the internet browser channel has to be purchsed on the newer Wii's.
Every other channel is free so far, weather,news,everyone votes,ect. ect. And playing any online game is free
You also don't really need a Wii-points card to purchase the downloadable games, if you have access to a credit card you can buy points to your Wii right online. Think of the Wii-points as a pickup-and-go card for downloadable games on the Wii, you can eaither buy an acctual card at a store or refill it with your own credit card online.
