    Mk. Every week or so I see a, "My Wii Channel Ideas" thread.

    Every stinkin' one of them goes as follows: DVD channel, music channel, video channel, demo channel, media channel, and online channel (like the online lobby). And THEN maybe one or two different channels. Maybe. So to put a stop to unnecessary posts, here's a thread where all the ideas come together. I'll even put your name by your idea (Oh the attention!). Except the ones listed above. EVERYBODY SUGGESTS THEM.

    Wii Channel Ideas

    Media Channel (Music, Video; downloads/streaming for music and video. Or anything that concerns video and music, because it falls into media.)
    DVD Channel
    Demo Channel
    Online Channel
    Marketplace Channel(joe_duffy from sources)
    DS Channel (joe_duffy from sources)
    Wii Messenger Channel (joe_duffy from sources)
    Wii House Channel (naisatoh)
    Wii Paint (Smashfan)
    Advertisment Channel (Wario2ooo)
    Food Channel (Wario2ooo)
    Local News Channel (Wario2ooo)
    Chat Channel (Wario2ooo)
    "Make Your Own Channel" Channel (Wario2ooo)

    (Also, Riviet posted channel ideas from ign.com 16 posts below here. There is alot of stuff typed up, and it'd be a shame just to get the general ideas from it. Check it out if you want to.)

    I have heard from a few sources that Nintendo is working on a DS Channel as well as a Media Player Channel, Wii Messenger Channel and a Wii Marketplace Channel.

    I know I would never use it, but how about a Wii house channel. Decorate a room or a house for your Mii. Invite other Miis over for Mii parties and what not. Like the Sims online.. but for Wii.

    i like the wii messenger channel. How about also having a Wii media channel with streaming video, music videos, game previews and media all free.
    Then you can have a second optional download channel called Wii-Per-View. Wii-Per-View could provide live pay-per-view events such as live music concerts and sports events. :idea:

    I think you made that up... What sources did u get that from? I want a direct link.

    they should make a forum channel on the Wii called... Wiichat! That should be a website! Wiichat.com... I like that...

    My computer channel where it uses samba to display files available on your network share. From there you can play whatever media you like.

    Many people are already doing this with the streaming media hacks.

    Trulen: If this wasn't posted by you I was going to rip the person a new one. It might be the first "official" thread that is actually that :)

    Wii Stocks Channel
    Nintendo is quite obviously hoping to capture more non-gamers with its Wii Channels. The News Channel grabs the latest AP headlines and doesn't even feature a dedicated gaming feed of news. Clearly, it's not targeted at the hardcore sector. That being true, why not offer a stock ticker interface that enables users to monitor their portfolios online?

    Wii Movie Search Channel
    Not everybody has money in Apple, Inc. -- although, really, they should. That said, most of us do enjoy a good movie. Normally, we turn to the Internet to find movie listings and show times, but why not simply power on the Wii to gain access to this information quickly and easily? There's no reason why it shouldn't be a possibility, especially since there are already widgets available for PC and Mac that grab feeds of this data.

    Wii Movie Trailers Channel
    In a perfect world, the Movie Trailers and Movie Search Channels would be integrated into one big, beautiful offering, but we're realists and frankly, Nintendo hasn't exactly gone above and beyond with its other Channels. They all display useful information, but their functionality is also regularly limited. So, if a Movie Trailers Channel needs to be its own entity, no problem. We can live with that. But regardless, it would be very handy if Wii could download and display 640x360 QuickTime trailers.

    DS Demos Channel Sony's already offering downloadable PSP games through the PlayStation 3 online network. Nintendo needs to get the same thing going for DS and sooner rather than later. A DS Demos Channel seems to be the ideal solution. Users interested in gaining DS demos could simply click on the Channel, choose the demo they'd like to try out, download it to Wii, and then wirelessly transfer the preview to their handheld.

    Wii Sports Page Channel
    Sure, there's a sports section in the Wii News Channel, but sports fans would agree that it barely scratches the surface of all the information available. Only a dedicated Wii Sports Page Channel could display all the latest news and all the sought after stats. Users should be able to organize the page by their favorite sports, tracking their choice teams, players, and more. A quick glance at the page every morning could easily bring even the most die-hard sports fans acceptably up-to-date on their favorite team's goings-ons.

    And Many, Many More...
    Readers have already said that they would love a zipcode-based pizza delivery channel, which was a bit too specialized for us to include as a standalone option in today's feature. That noted, it does raise an interesting point, which is that there is an audience for all sorts of different Channels, some more specific than others. With that in mind, we really think that the future of Wii Channels should rest in the hands of Nintendo and various third parties. If Nintendo were to create a Channels Marketplace, users could choose from hundreds of widget-style Channels crafted by the Big N and an assortment of studios. Do we think it'll happen? We'd be surprised. Nintendo is notoriously controlling and unlikely to relinquish its stranglehold on the Wii Channels interface. But we can certainly dream.

    A music channel would definitely be good as most of you previously have mentioned; would also be cool to be able to set the music playing as the background music when you're on the other various channels.

    This should be a sticky, it'd filter out some of these kinds of threads.

    I actually can't think of any aside from the already said ones. A DS Channel would be awesome though. :yesnod:
