    See that hole in your wall?
    Currently, channels can be downloaded to an SD card. However, they are encrypted and contain information that makes them only usable on the system that downloaded them. So you can't copy them to another Wii.

    In the future, we may be able to copy channels between systems, but only if that encryption is broken by hackers.

    Somewhat related question here:
    What if I had the Internet channel previously on my Wii, but forgot to back it up to a SD card before I formatted the console?
    Am I still able to download the Internet Channel for free again?

    If you already downloaded it once, you should be able to redownload it for free. Atleast, that's the case with all other virtual console purchases.

    I think nintendo has a special support system for those cases, not quite sure. You could allways email nintendo and see what they have to say.

    internet channel do u mean the Opera Web browser?
    if yes, once u have formatted your Wii u can download the app again, the server should have saved your system details so when u log into the channel to download it.. a downlink link will be visible
    in the event that its asking u to pay again, you can contact Nintendo to have this issue rectified. so basically once u have paid for something on the internet channels, its yours to download as many times as u wish
