Wii owners take note! Although probably not, because let's be honest, who really used any of these services?
In any case, Nintendo has announced that it will be discontinuing a number of the Wii's online services at the end of June.
Nintendo have announced that the following Wii Channels will go offline from June 28th:
- Nintendo Channel
- News Channel
- Forecast Channel
- Everybody Votes Channel
- Mii Contest Channel
- Data exchange with Wii Friends*
* 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
Nintendo issued a statement to apologise to those users still utilising the Channels:
"We at Nintendo sincerely thank you for your continued patronage of our company’s products. We would like to inform you that a portion of the online services offered through the Wii console will be discontinued from 28th June 2013.
"We apologise to those of you currently using these services."
It's worth noting too that the Wii Shop Channel and “Today’s Accomplishments” on the Wii Message Board will remain available.
