The '''Wii Shop Channel''' was the place Nintendo created to buy/download official software from the internet directly to your Wii. You could download lots of different content for your Wii, this includes new channels, [[Virtual Console]] games and WiiWare. The latter two could be purchased by either buying a points card at a retail store, or by entering your credit card into the channel. On January 31, 2019, the Wii Shop Channel was shut down. The shop can still be accessed, however, only the Wii U Transfer Tool and The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Save Data Update Channel are downloadable.

== Channels in the Shop still there? ==
Interestingly, most of the software that was in the Shop is not completely gone, it is still on Nintendo's servers, but the software is simply hidden from plain view. If you open the Wii Message Board, then open the permotianal message from Nintendo about YouTube on Wii (others may work as well, as long as they are about a new software title), then click Start, it will launch the Wii Shop and go to the YouTube page, although, you cannot download the channel because the bottom of the page where the download button would be says "This software is currently unavalible."
