    Web Browser is UP - Get it Free from the Wii Shop Channel

    News isn't yet

    You will have a WiiMail from them.

    And there's no point in having a Wii you don't play. You Depriving people who WANT to play this console :)
     
  3. ah, so that explains why i keep receiving the message "you must perform a wii system update to use this channel. You cannot use this channel until service begins"

    that makse sense now.....i was actually going to make a thread on why i was unable to access the news channel even though i am up to date on all my software

    that has now solved and answered my question!!!!!!! yay! approximately when will it be set up? any ideas? ballpark?

    haha nice one, i think it will be wii/nintendo news rather than actuall news.
     
  7. i figured that much.....it would have to be international news unless they somehow limit/vary from country and state? kinda like what they do for tv stations now with "local news" but that would be a bit far fetched.

    i assume youre right with nintendo news. keeping everyone up to date on updates, game additions, ect? its gotta be interesting to say the least :)

    Thinking it would be 'nintendo news' only is not very well-thought. Since the weatherchannel doesnt offer 'nintendo weather', but some 3rd party broadcasting it on the Wii. Hence the newschannel will be (probably) broadcast by another 3rd party (CNN, whatever). This is probably done in the same matter as websites broadcast RSS feeds.

    Any news on upcoming channels?-
     
  18. is anyone else finding their weather to be a bit innacurate? for some reason where i am located in NY, it says as of 7AM on that specific day, its like 60-someodd degrees and sunny when infact here in NY it hasnt been above 53 or so and its night time where its about 30 something degrees and not sunny??:wtf:

    also, when does the "free trial" expire on the internet server here? and whats the guestimate on price? i assume youre kinda stuck buying with through wii points so you can down load the games on the virtual consul........

    (sorry about that) But i'm not mad at yah or anything. Just wanned to say this :p

    well i hope that it won't be only normal news cause then it's better to go to the internett channell. But nintendo news will be easyer to find there(news channel).
     

  20. haha, perverted-ness has nothing to do with justification and proper death sentencing :thumbsup:

    you think thats the worst ive seen? oh boy! ill tell you another day and you can deff be shocked and appauled.....comes with the job!:yikes:

    no hard feelings taken :)

    i agree with you on the normal news thing....thats why i asked if it was going to be localized? dont know how exactly they will set it up. welp, i guess only time will tell.
