    lets try this again, mods if you can delete my other thread I would appreciate it. I have a pal Australian Wii, I have softmodded it and it's on 4.3E I believe. I have a US Netflix account that I wish to use on the wii, however I know that netflix usually isn't on PAL/european wii's. I've read where it can be installed but many have had issues with their wii's afterwards. Is there any way I can install it without having any issues? Would the guides for the US wii's work on the PAL ones? I'm really being careful as I want it to work without bricking/messing up the wii.

    Netflix is on available for PAL Wii systems.
    I assume you have your Wii Console / Wii Shop Channel set to Australian.
    Change your country on the Wii console to UK and accept the UK Shop Channel agreement.
    You will be able to connect to the UK Wii Shop Channel, and download the Netflix app.
    Just change your country back when you have finished.
    Also make sure you don't have any Wii Points as you will lose them when you change the country on the Wii console for the Shop Channel ...but it will warn you first.
    You will not lose any purchases such as Wii Shop games or dlc by doing this.

    so I tried iQue method first & it's a no go, it's asking for an update. I would try your method Abdallah, it just seems like a lot to do and learn, me being new to the wii softmodding I don't want to risk damaging anything to the system. Any other options available that would work?
