The forecast channel, the news channel, and of course the Internet channel have expanded the Wii's online experience beyond what most thought to be possible, and can entertain for hours. With the custom Wii Opera browser, all of the aforementioned give Wii gamers something to do outside of gaming, and who knew how fun scanning the globe for different weather info could be so fun?

Be sure to grab the Internet channel when you can though, as the free download period is about to expire: after June 30th the browser will cost you 500 Wii points, or $5 USD.

Everyone knew the free download period was going to come to an end, but the reminder Nintendo sent out is definitely worth repeating (especially for students).

Go get it!
