The News Channel was a channel available on the Wii console that lets users view news articles for free using the internet and the WiiConnect24 service. The News Channel is constantly updated every day.

The News Channel is made for the living room, and so font size and certain other settings can be changed.

Like the Forecast Channel, the News Channel features a 3D, rotatable model of the Earth that can be used to find news headlines around the world.


Although the channel was officially discontinued on June 28, 2013, it was unofficially rereleased in October 2015 for use with the RiiConnect24 homebrew service.
