    When i bought the internet channel for my wii it was for two reasons:

    1 for the novelty of viewing pages on my wii

    2 And sort of for sake of having it (yay its on my wii!)

    but really id like to know if it actually has a 'real‘ use...

    I mean its good for flash movies, but is there anything real cool that you can do?

    (and now ive just realised how painfully slow it is to make a thread but hey, I DID IT ON MY WII WOOOOO):smilewinkgrin:

    Nah, I don't think so. Just browsing the internet. :p Well, thats what I know. Some kids here use it for myspace and such. Like, if your parents don't know.. you sneak it by using the Wii Internet. Lol! But, yeah.. I don't do that. I don't have myspace! ♥

    500!!!!!!!!!!!

    It allows you to view web pages on ur wii via an internet connection.

    It was free but now its gunna cost you 500 wii points in the software section off the wii shop.

    Im just deciding now whether it was worth it or not.

    Yeah, people who bought the Wii before July 07, got the Internet for free. :p Now they charge it since uhm, I dunno. Why? Is it because the Wii is availible now? Hmm ..

    well it was suppost to be a little reward for those people who bought a wii straight off.
    Its ok, if you've got a few mates round and you want to listen to the thundercats or smurfs theme tune without much faffing around its brilliant. I'll warn you now though, its a much slower download than your pc is (no matter what your connection) as the wii's memory is slower at saving and processing data than a pc's.

    I used to use internet channel when I was playing Zelda. When I got stuck for like an hour, and I was too lazy to get up and turn my desktop computer on and serach, I used internet channel.
    I only did that for like twice. Other than that, no use.

    The best use for the wii internet channel I've seen so far is for using the Wii media server - you can stream music and videos from a computer to your wii, and watch them on your TV.

    It uses the wii internet channel as a media browser, a bit like Windows XP Media Center Edition, and then converts on the fly as it streams.
