The YouTube Channel lets users stream YouTube videos on their Wii; as well as log in to view their playlists, favorites and uploaded videos; and set up a Safety Mode to avoid inappropriate content. The channel was released on November 15, 2012 on the Wii Shop Channel. [1][2]

The channel was discontinued on June 28th, 2017, due to Google ending YouTube support on older devices. [3] RiiTube can be used instead to watch YouTube videos on the Wii.

Limitations

The YouTube Channel requires a internet connected device, such as a phone or computer, to log in, after which it will only allow you to log in and out of that one account until the channel's save data is deleted. In addition, its simplistic interface does not allow rating of videos, posting or viewing comments, reading video descriptions or viewing video annotations, nor does it let users access individual user channels. In addition, videos will always automatically play the next related video once finished.
