Nintendo Makes Wii Internet Channel Free, and better yet Offers Refunds
Nintendo sent a message to Wii owners late last night announcing the Nintendo Wii Internet Channel would no longer cost 500 Wii Points to purchase and if you had spent money to add the channel to your library, you're being offered a refund that can be applied to any NES game in the Virtual Console marketplace.
You won't be able to purchase an NES game until the promotion begins in late October.
The news also comes with word that the Internet Channel has been updated with a newer version of Adobe Flash, allowing users to access more websites than before. Many are reporting Facebook loads properly now, in addition to improved accessibility for a number of video-based websites.
