==Wii Shop Channel==
The {{wp|Wii Shop Channel}} is a channel which comes pre-installed on Wii consoles. It uses the Internet to purchase and download WiiWare, Virtual Console games and channels with Wii Points.
 
===Nintendo Channel===
The {{wp|Wii Menu#Nintendo Channel|Nintendo Channel}} is a free downloadable channel which contains various videos and demos of Nintendo games. Use of this channel requires the Internet. These videos are often commercials, trailers, and interviews relating to Nintendo products. All [[Pokémon games]] for [[Nintendo DS]] and Wii (excluding Virtual Console) that have had an English language release have been featured on the channel at some point.
 
Additionally, the channel has a feature called the DS Download Service, which allows players to download demos of games to a Nintendo DS system via DS Download Play. Demos for [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], [[Pokémon Trozei!]] and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky]] can be downloaded. Explorers of Sky has three slightly different demos.

It is not compatible with [[Nintendo GameCube]] games or hardware like the original model was. It is designed to sit horizontally rather than upright like the original model. It was released in October 2011 in North America and Europe.

[[File:Wii Mini.png|thumb|Wii Mini]]
The Wii Mini is a special model of Wii that removes features from the Wii so it can be sold at a lower price. It is not compatible with [[Nintendo GameCube]] games or hardware, has no online functions, and does not have an {{wp|Secure Digital|SD card}} slot, restricting the console to only playing games from Wii game discs. It also only has one {{wp|Universal Serial Bus|USB port}} rather than the two on the original Wii, and can only use {{wp|composite video}} cables rather than the {{wp|S-Video}} and {{wp|component video}} cables used by the original Wii. It was released exclusively in Canada on December 7, 2012.
