flynnisawsome I didn't know that it only affected NA and Japan that's DUMB!!! Secondly, I guess it's ok that all the apps were disabled since like many know they weren't used often. But to disable WiiConnect24 so that you can't add new friends or send messages anymore there's no point in playing online anymore. All the people you play with you'll never get to play with them or talk to them again. It's stupid cuz now you got this stupid upgraded wii that doesn't do anything but have an extra screen, hd graphics, and new apps. You u can get that with the 3ds. Nintendo suck now and trying to make their money back by forcing players to buy the WiiU while they need to focus on making better games.

It's surprising that they're still using those channels when the Wii U came out in Late October last year. It's time to move on, Nintendo.
the remaining Wii units will have to be sold first. it's not that easy.

Good riddance with News Channel and Forecast Channel.There's weather forecasts everywhere. I didn't even use that channel much anyways. Everybody Votes, Mii Contest, and Today And Tomorrow, you will be missed.

No more WiiConnect24?!? Does that mean there's no more MKWii online competitions?!? I love them so much, I don't want to see them go. How about the Mario Kart Channel, don't delete that, I have a massive participation rate. What is it with Nintendo these days? I love the Wii. It shall never die! Except with the Wii U, I'm planning to get that soon.

Good that it didn't say Wii Shop Channel, I can still download Virtual Console games, right?

The Mii Contest was my favourite. The Miis in those competitions look just like what the competition says to do.


Wii Message Board was useless tbh.

EDIT: I forgot the Nintendo Channel. You will be missed as well. I don't see the need in participation in that channel. Those game trailers got me really excited on the new and coming soon releases.

They aren't run by Nintendo, so they should function just fine on the old Wii even past June.
Thank You

Forecast Channel and the News Channel are getting axed, huh, I used those quite often. Oh well, I guess it's about time I downloaded an app for them anyways.

I never greatly cared for any of the Wii's apps. Focusing all support on the Wii U was something they should have been doing since last November anyways. :/

This also goes hand-in-hand with the discontinuation of Flipnote Hatena for Nintendo DSi to make way for Flipnote Studio 3D on 3DS.

Not much of a surprise that they would do this tbh. The Wii's life is slowly running down with the Wii U being out and some of these channels were little to no use. Forecast channel? I can get the weather on my phone or TV or internet. News channel is the same.

I never even used the others.
