The Wii Shop Channel is the place Nintendo created to buy/download official software from the internet directly to your Wii. You can download lots of different content for your Wii, this includes new channels, Virtual Console games and Wiiware. The latter two must be purchased by either buying a points card at a retail store, or by entering your credit card into the channel. Some channels are available for free download, such as the Check Mii Out Channel, Everybody Votes Channel, Nintendo Channel, and the Internet Channel.

In order to use the Wii Shop Channel, you have to configure your Wii's connection settings. It uses a secure connection to the servers, so we cannot sniff it. In previous versions of the channel, the connection wasn't secured.[1] Please note that these are outdated, and may have changed in newer versions.

You can also access the Wii Shop Channel from a PC, but it will not look as it does on the Wii, because the HTML refers to Wii-specific fonts and Wii-specific JavaScript APIs. We've tried using these codes on the Internet Channel without success.

To find out used URLs and IPs refer to the Wii.com article.

The Wii Shop Channel's title ID is 0x0001000248414241 (HABA), and for Korean Wiis, 0x000100024841424B (HABK).

If you have the latest git of libogc, available from git://hackmii.com/home/ogcgit/libogc if you have a git client, you can use the following code to start the shop channel and jump to a specific product:

WII_LaunchTitleWithArgs(0x0001000248414241LL, 0,"/startup?initpage=showTitle&titleId=*FULLTITLEID*", NULL /*terminator*/ );

where *FULLTITLEID* is the full ID in hex of the software.

For example, to open the European version of Columns on the Megadrive in the European version of Wii Shop Channel, you would use:

WII_LaunchTitleWithArgs(0x0001000248414241LL, 0,"/startup?initpage=showTitle&titleId=000100014d414250", NULL /*terminator*/ );
