    Kinda strange, but when I search for Sega consoles in Wiishop no Sega platform was listed, I try then search for distributor and the same thing Sega didn't appear as distributor, then I tried search the word "Sonic" and no luck...

    My Wii is NTSCU, Country Chile. I wonder what happened, all other console are listed.

    Working fine here. I searched for "Sonic" and found Sonic 2, Sonic Chaos, Sonic 3, Sonic 3D, and more..

    Not sure why you're having trouble...

    Maybe is a country thing...
    Strange. Will check it out later.
    I doubt it has to do with some missing IOS, or WiiShop channel update...

    I'll guarantee it has nothing to do with IOS or Shop update. Like you said, it could be your country. I'm in the northeast USA and it works.

    If the IOS was missing, you'd have a black screen. If the shop was outdated, it wouldn't even allow you access. You'd see an "Update Wii" message instead.

    Yep, it was the country. Sega doesn't allow people from Chile download their games =/

    How did you get around these local restrictions? Simply by using a proxy?

    Weird. Well, also you can't link Club Nintendo account with another country that isn't USA or Canada.
    Just use Wii Shop Channel with USA country, and after that, change to Chile again.
