    Well you know that people get double channels on the Wii?

    Is it possible to install different region channels? Like, I am in the UK and have a US Wii. Can I install the Euro region weather and new channels? Could a European install the US shop channel?

    I have a feeling it will be 'no', but best to ask.

    Thanks. Just searched; I see - seems simple enough. But is it possible to remove my US weather channel?

    Or use Wii Duplicated Channel Remover by waninkoko for US Region {like said memorris}, and if you want your channel back, just find the wad on that tracker.

    Thanks, but these channels come on the Wii itself already don't they?

    They're not removable I thought?

    Will the remover tool work on anon-chipped, Homebrew-enabled Wii?

    Right, so I use the remover to remove my channels. There is no way to choose which are deleted?

    Then I reinstall them with WAD files but for News and Weather I use the UK ones. But every time that I get an update, this will install US News & Weather channels too, yeah?

    Can I ask which WADs I'll have to harvest? Shop, Photo, Mii - I think they're the only other ones built-in aren't they?

    The search starts...

    (Any links welcomed)
