    Internet channel Why do they charge for it?

    I'm sure I would use it if it was free. Sucks that I bought my wii after the free downloads ended. Maybe there is a reason to dish out $5 for it. What though?

    It's a third-party program (developed by Opera). Opera wants to get paid for their program. Of course Nintendo paid the bill for the first several months, and I guess they still could, but for whatever reason don't. So now it's $5.

    It depends how many computers you have and how often you can access them. When I bought my wii, I had one computer in my house (Along with my parents laptops) So, I used it quite a bit.

    Now, I have two more computers and a laptop myself, so I never use it.

    It really depends on the situation.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    1. It's internet on the Wii.
    2. It's only 5 bucks.
    3. People will buy it for the novelty.
    4. It's non-refundable.

    Nintendo makes a chunk of change extra.

    That's why Nintendo did it.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    Before I got my macbook in I used the Internet Channel all of the time (got it b 4 they charged ya for it.) This is partially b/c there are 3 people in my house who use the computer all of the time. So, if I just want to look something up I can go to my Wii. However it hasnt been used for about 1 month now. I like it when I want to watch music videos in full screen on my TV. BTW, macbooks are awesome! F the PC.
