Wii Shop Channel

The Wii Shop Channel was an online shop for the Wii video game console that allowed users to download Virtual Console games, WiiWare games, and additional channels. The channel launched on November 19, 2006, and ceased operations on January 30, 2019. Available software was organized into three sections: Virtual Console, WiiWare, and Wii Channels. It is now impossible to purchase content on the channel, but all previously purchased content can still be re-downloaded indefinitely as of February 1, 2019. Upon its discontinuation, most software was removed from the channel, and the shop's interface reverted to its original 2006 design and layout.
