Nintendo Discontinuing Some Wii Online Services

Jack Gardner



Nintendo announced today that as of June 28 they will be ending the online support of several of their main applications. The major developer and hardware manufacturer accompanied their announcement by saying, “We apologize to those of you currently using these services, and ask for your understanding.” Five front page channels will be affected, along with some of the ability to swap data and Miis between systems among friends.


Below are the changes as of June 28:


Forecast Channel

News Channel

Everybody Votes Channel

Nintendo Channel

Check Mii Out Channel

Data exchange between Wii friends via WiiConnect24


Did anyone rely on these applications? Will anyone miss them now that they are gone? Let us know in the comments!
