    Hi Folx:

    I thought Wii came with an Internet browser but I did not see one, neither could I download it. Any idea when the browser will be available.

    Thanks

    under the wii shop you click on start shopping and then there are a couple options, such as VC software and "Wii-Ware" and it will be in Wii-Ware of course all it shows is a picture of google.com and says that it will be coming shortly

    im pretty sure it will always be free. a browser should never cost money. if it does ever cost anything, im sure some people will find a way to acess it or make a browser like they did for the PSP

    im getting a little confused. i get it that its gonna be free for a while. does that mean that, its free to download.. and if u were lucky to download it for free, u dont have to pay later on. or, will it always be free to download, but will have to start paying monthly for it starting in june (assuming its a monthly charge)

    From wii.nintendo.com:

    "When available, this channel will dramatically change the relationship between your home, the television and the Internet. After downloading the Opera browser with Wii Points, you can surf the Internet right from the comfort of your couch. You can do quick research while watching a television program ("What was that actor's name again?"), or book travel plans and shop during commercials. The service is compatible with Macromedia Flash and also runs AJAX software."

    Opera Browser w/ Wii Points; Wii Points cost money; Opera Browser = not free.

    do they think that people are gonna be watching tv, then all of a sudden hit the "tv/video" button on their remote, then turn on their wii and go online just for that?

    btw, would u be able to download anything of the internet onto the wii. not sure if thats been brought up yet.

    If it's a ONE TIME charge then it's ok, but a reoccurring fee will be a huge Mistake on Nintendo's part.

    The Internet Channel will be available for a FREE download until June 2007.
    Once you get the browser... you will have it forever.
    There is no monthly fee associated with the channel.
    But after June 2007, you will have to pay ONCE for the browser.
    Then you have it forever as well.
