    RiiConnect24 have been hard at work creating a News Channel that works (since September 2015!), and they are happy to announce that a beta version now exists. One can access it via their regular Wii; they merely require the RiiConnect24 DNS of 185.82.21.64 and the custom IOS31 from them.

    The custom IOS31 is merely required, as the original WiiConnect24 key couldn't be used (unless someone here can extract it from Nintendo ;) ), and we'd rather set our own key rather than make a custom channel, with all the issues that entailed. Other than that and the DNS, it runs the exact same way as the original News Channel :D

    They have noted that sometimes stories could have incorrect formatting, and some errors on file load (the files are made hourly so if it breaks check again in an hour), and does not have globe location or imagery yet, but these are merely teething problems.

    Compared to when it was still active from Nintendo their side.
    Maybe one or two thousand.

    It's not the userbase, it's the fact that one can manipulate the news channels and breathe new life into them.

    One could say that about other things we're planning on bringing back, but the point is to make the Wii work like it did in 2011 - many different channels with WC24 :P

    It'll be amazing when the Forecast channel returns. But, @Larsenv said that it might need to be Rewritten.

    Is all the news uncategorised right now, some other videos have categories. Also, some news articles are repeated.

    The videos show our last dump of the real news from 2013, and we know of the bugs (it is a beta after all, so it wont all work :P)
    Uncategorization is because we'll have to somehow work out the category ourselves, unless someone has an API for news with categories :P

    Once this is vWii compatible and with globe support, I am all over this. I always wanted to show my wife why the globe setup made the news channel so much fun!

    Never launched this channel once in my life. I don't know why someone would.
