and it's nice... spin the globe, see where it lands!
Whoa for real!? =O Damn i gotta update my wii and try it out then!!
well, it is live in australia.
as for everywhere else?
I don't know.
about 15 mins after I updated, I got a wiimail from nintendo saying that I should update, and check out the forcast channel
I alos got a mail from nintendo saying that the forecast channel had arrived!! I just started updating it So i think it's safe to say that europe and australia has gotten the forecast channel!! Dunno about america though
Edit: 250th post!!!
Think it's nice, but I doubt i'll ever use it..
Nice addition and a pretty unexpected date. When will the news and browser channels be availeble?
It`s live in Japan too. I just looked at the Wii and noticed it was glowing - wasn`t supposed to arrive here until tomorrow. Yay.
VERY nice for those in Japan who hang their laundry outside to dry (Like, everybody).
Yes, I woke up this morning to bask in the welcoming glow of my Wii. Then when I read the email from Nintendo it was like recieving an early Christmas present
I can't wait for the internet channel though!
Too bad it's quite inaccurate. Wii says sunny tomorrow, tv says rainy :|
In fact Wii says sunny for the entire week - like that's going to happen.
I wonder where the hell they get their weather data from - not the NZ metservice that's for sure.
I'll put 50 bucks on the wii being right, never trust those tv weather forecasts! Anywho, the forecast seems pretty accurate here, well at least for tomorrow. It was full cloudy today but on the wii it says sunny. Still though its a cool gimmick, cause my mom keeps asking me to check the weather once in awhile and now i can check without moving my butt off the couch.
Great i live in "south holland" instead of Zuid Holland , they named all the provinces correctly but they failed to translate nort and south.
I also noticed about 1/4 th of Holland ( The Netherlands ) That's supposed to be under water has become dry land in the weather channel
The weather channel is fun but i would prefer if they would show a forecast in the main menu instead of clicking it, other then that it's fun but useless for me since i already have weather forecasts build into firefox
it's nice...but the city which is next to me, often dont have the same weather that we have in our valley...so it's pretty useless for me...it says today is sunny, but it's snowing here...
Doesn`t it say in the lower left where the data is from? I know that it does for mine. Weather News - which is like THE weather source for Japan - so I can imagine they might not be as reliable for the rest of the world.
Their page design is really wonderful though. I am pretty thrilled they`re the ones supplying the weather for the Wii (at least in Japan) - makes me glad I invested in their stock.
Oh, and supposedly, the map data is from NASA.
ya i got it a lil while ago and it says that it won't snow on christmas eve where i live
it nailed my weather for today. and the rest of the week is matching other forcasts here as well... seems nice that i wont have to watch x amount of minutes of the weather channel to catch 'Local on the Eights'... their music makes me soo sleeeppppyyyy.....
Video/pics of the Forecast channel in action:
very cool. looks great.
why didn't they arrange it by zip code though?
The better should have coöperated with Google earth , so you could get high res pictures of the earth
To less city's in it Koksijde Belgium has it's wown weather station that is used for the whole belgium coast, so why using Nieuwpoort that doesn't have a weather station.
Oostende is more known then Nieuwpoort, Ah well let's hope it gets improved
Wonder who will make the newschannel, I can see Lame CNN provide european news aired from america
I want not local news, but i expect news from my own country in my own language, not news provided by some london guy who doesn't know sh** about inside country news and in english.
Let them coöperate with the bigger local country newspapers (HLN/GvA/HBvL/HNB/DS/DM/Etc...)
Hopefully they'll integrate radar into it at some point, that'd be the cincher for me. I like to see the storms come in. Anybody heard anything on that.. erm... front?
Also, a water vapor map would be fantastic for us stargazers. Nobody ever thinks of that, but it's not like it's hard to come by the data or anything.
Of course, I don't even have a Wii yet, so I should probably just hush...
its been updating for 5 mins now and the progress bar hasnt moved at all what should i do?
*edit* i just reset the system and im gonna try updating again :/
