They're gonna give me a free VC game?! O_O To quote Keanu, "Wooooow...." I'm definitely gonna check this out.Wait, do I need to delete the old channel first and then download the new one or what?

No you have to make sure you have 218 open blocks, then download it and the old one gets deleted after the download.So in the end you should have 36 more free blocks then before.

I'm in the U.S., but I was fortunate to get it for free since I downloaded the original beta version. Then it upgraded and I didn't have to drop any points on it. I'm frustrated at it's inability to play some of the you-tube vids, etc. I was really wanting to watch Roughnecks and it wouldn't let me. Hopefully, if this update comes to the U.S., it'll resolve that problem.

Awesome, I ignored the blue spam light this morning but then saw this. I now have the lovely Wii-Shop music caressing my ears as I download the all new Internet Channel. No free SNES game for me though I've had the Internet Channel since day 1. But nice one Nintendo for reimbursing (kinda) those who paid. Wahoo!
Now I'm gonna test it out. Hhmmm.

Thinking about it.... I would have rathered the Nintendo Channel update Japan got a while ago. The update itself isn't really anything to rant and rave about and isn't going to change how I use it because I don't really use it much anyway.
The extra space is nice and the making it free/giving a refund thing is cool (even though it doesn't effect me since I got it early anyway). Other than that however... "meh"

This is a nice surprise. I bought the Internet channel after the free period was over after I converted my star points to Wii points when it was first available so I can get the free VC game. I'll probably get Balloon Fight. That or Zelda II

Well you can watch videos on NL, instead of having to link to youtube to watch 'em. But you can't watch owt on IGN still. Lame!
@LTG: Adobe Flash Lite 3.1, awesome huh.

Well that ignorant! What's up with Adobe. I don't understand why they don't/can't let Nintendo put a better version of flash than that.

@LTG: That's next year, be patient. lol

It's not that bad
Flash Lite 3.1 includes the following new capabilities:
H.264 support (dependent on OEM implementation) — Flash Lite 3.1 includes H.264 standard video support, the same standard deployed in Blu-ray and HD-DVD high-definition video players and HD web videos.
Improved Web browsability — Flash Lite 3.1 is broadcast as a Flash 9, ActionScript® 2.0 compatible player and supports any content that does not use ActionScript 3.0. The Flash Lite 3 web browsability guidelines provide a complete list of features not supported in Flash Lite 3.1.
Support for hardware acceleration — Flash Lite 3.1 supports OpenVG 1.1 to improve flash rendering performance on capable devices.
New object-oriented extension mechanism — This mechanism provides easier and faster integration with device APIs.
Flash Lite 3.1 includes the following new capabilities:
It's basically Flash 8.5 HD Remix, which is a hell of a lot better than Flash 7 we used to have. (It would be Flash 9, but alas ActionScript 3 is a no-go.)

Shouldn´t NintendoLife put this in the news section?
34. Posted: Tue 1st Sep 2009 14:21 BST
I suspect we'll need some kind of official statement from Nintendo (or a staffer to confirm full details themselves .

Ug, so I tried the BBC iPlayer (which I use a fair bit) to see if the quality has been improved, and it's not working anymore, at all.

No fair, Americans get even less then Europeans in the downloadable section. Somebody confirm this in America so I can get excited.
I know, America's always gotta WAIT!!!

I'll be very interested to learn whether sites like Hulu work correctly now with the update Flash player.

Another quality browser courtesy of the good folks at Nintendo! NOT Don't think I'll even bother downloading this. I know it's free an all, but c'mon, it's rubbish really in it? I mean why bother?
What's this bit for again?
40. Posted: Tue 1st Sep 2009 15:03 BST
Its not as good as using the PC but its not completely rubbish, I sometimes use it while my PC is starting up or if my PC is acting up, so it can be handy at times.
