    If you already downloaded the complete version of the Internet Channel it will stay free forever. If you are just downloading for the first time the channel has a cost, but is a one time fee.

    Please do a search. This has been explained and re-explained before...

    @Jay61: It's still free. The trial (which is no more) was free and the internet channel is free (as of now).

    @WiiBoy99: You are correct, so let's hope you get a Wii in the next month. :)

    It's a shame that my post was removed, I feel it was valid.

    To clarify to the obvious retards on the forums:

    1. Regardless of whether you use the Internet Channel on your Wii, you will still have to pay your ISP for Internet access.

    2. Currently it is free to download the Internet Channel, however after June, it will cost you 500 points to download.

    3. Once you have the Internet Channel, there are no further Nintendo cost incurred.

    4. In summary, if you do not manage to download the Internet Channel before June, you will incur a one time fee of 500 points to gain access to the Internet via your Wii.

    In addition, the full version of the Internet Channel is available, so anyone who is currently using the trial version should upgrade now.

    (By the way, it's Internet, not internet)

    Its a down payment, not monthly. So there is nothing to worry about if you have, or are going to, download it. And even if you dont download it by then, its only 5 bucks.

    ^Really? My WiiBrowser ussually takes less than a second to load a page.

    The only thing I dislike about it is there are no tabs...

    Sorry, I meant when loading youtube videos and such. I've compared the two, my laptop loads videos much faster than my Wii.

    I had hoped that these services would remain free, due to Nintendo being able to profit on console sales (unlike Microsoft charging for everything on Live to make up for loss on 360s) but it seems that it's not going to happen. If enough people do buy the channel I'm afraid that it will catch on. The good side is that it may increase development (possibly 3rd party, licensed by Nintendo of course).

    If you've got a computer, use that... I downloaded the internet channel and pretty much only use it solely for fun... I wouldn't pay $5 for it at any point...
