Remember this is Australia only for now, but could easily happen in other regions too, especially since Nintendo of America never likes to warn people in advance...
The following Channels and services will no longer work on June 28, 2013 and beyond in Australia, even if you start certain services from the Wii Menu:
- Nintendo Channel
- News Channel
- Forecast Channel
- Everybody Votes Channel
- Mii Contest Channel
- Data exchange with Wii Friends via WiiConnect24*
* Exchange of Wii messages on the Wii Message Board, exchange of Mii characters on the Mii Channel and message/data exchange within some games will be disabled.
From 28th June 2013, the above services will no longer be available even if they are started up from the Wii Menu. However, services other than those mentioned above, such as the Wii Shop Channel and “Today’s Accomplishments” on the Wii Message Board, will remain available.
Better get in your WiiConnect24ing while you still can!
