    Can you race online with the channel without having to boot up the game?

    The Mario Kart Channel is just a shortcut to rankings, ghosts and friends. When you start an actual race, it will ask for the game disc and load it.

    Can you do this with any other games? Just use their "channel" once you've already loaded/played the game and saved on your Wii?

    I dont have a Wii and so I dont know...I never even thought about it until now...

    The channel only displays stats and leaderboards. It doesn't install the game onto your wii system memory. You can't play online with it.
