Nintendo to shut down Wii channels around the world

Wii users can soon wave goodbye to a host of services currently available through the game console.
Come June 28, Nintendo will pull the plug on five channels in the U.S., Australia, and other countries, specifically the Forecast Channel, the News Channel, the Everybody Votes Channel, the Nintendo Channel, and the Check Mii Out Channel.
Channels due to disappear in Japan include the the News Channel, the Weather Channel, the Digicam Print Channel, Everyone's Nintendo Channel, the Everyone Votes Channel, and the Mii Contest Channel.
Additionally, Wii users will lose the ability to exchange data with their Wii friends via the WiiConnect24 feature, Nintendo said today in a notice on its Japanese and Australian Web sites.
A few of these channels are available to all Wii owners, while others exist only in certain countries. Nintendo noted that other channels, such as Wii Shop Channel, would be spared the ax.
