I do think there is some channels that we just dont need,but if you dont want them dont use or download them(example i dont read the news or browse the internet on wii,i do that on my computer,so why bash those channels?).I think the nintendo channel is actually the best new channel besides wii shop.I mean yea all it is is nintendo news and ds download channel but think about what they could do with this channel.

I like Wii Channel is very fasinating to me! Like Wii News & the Sound it makes as it switches storys! I can't find the MP3 of this one no where!
