    Hi everyone,

    Its me again and I have a feeling that this thread is going to be borderlining some rules but I'm curious about something. In Japan there are two Wii channels dedicated to movie watching. One of those channels (Wii no Ma) was released today. The other channel was created by a third party and was released earlier and by now has better content. I was wondering if anyone has released .wads for these channels? Besides that Im sure they will load on my system but Will I need a Japanese shop channel installed to use these channels or will it take more work?

    It just seems like Japan has all the cool channels and I just want a taste. I guess once we get these channels someone should take screen captures and create a translation PDF for the community

    Gambia, The
    those channels are streaming channels. they work similar to netflix on xbox360 but with special produced content for the wii and no movies or tv shows.

    Actually, there ARE official commercial content for those channels, some of which you have to pay for using Nintendo Points

    I heard that it doesn't come out until May 1st, but I guess Japan is 14-17 hours ahead of the US, depending on where you live, so it could be out assuming they released it at midnight local time.
    What's the other wii video channel and where did you hear about it?
    I'd be more excited, but remember all the video content is probably in Japanese. It might be cool to redirect the video channel to point to a fake content server, assuming someone would be willing to host questionably legal video for us, which I doubt, lol. Maybe we could just host our own movies, assuming they have a better way of streaming them in the video channel, but I would guess they're just downloaded to the sd card.

    Is netflix still going to release a disc based application or what?

    Provided these are not pay-for WADs (and even possibly if they are), you could download them with NUS Downloader should you figure out the TitleID.

    This is entirely against the rules. Their Nintendo and someone else's property. I suggest you all edit your posts.

    Yeah since he asked "have they been released", this is ok atm.

    Just remember, no-one is allowed to distribute the content as wads here.

    As WB3000 said, if someone finds the title id, you might be able to grab them yourself using his app [​IMG]

    Good Idea, nothing like using your home IP address to steal directly from nintendo.


    I'd wait for a scene release if it's that much of a big deal to you. Don't be stupid.

    chill out man, what's the worst that could happen [​IMG]

    I would change my shop setting but I read that you're stuck on whatever region you first access it from. Is there an option to change only the shop channel from Any Region Changer?
    No one confirmed (that I could find anyway) if you can switch your shop region by erasing your shop channel account or something like that.

    You guys need to chill out with the "stealing" crap. You cant "steal" a channel that both Nintendo and the 3rd party (that created the other channel) distributes!
