Nintendo has announced that starting today the Opera-powered Wii Internet Channel is available free of charge.
That's right, surf the internet, watch online TV, buy stuff all via your Nintendo. All you need is an internet connection.
Until now, the browser has cost users 500 Wii Points (US$5) since it was released. To compensate, Nintendo is offering those who already have the channel a NES, Super Nintendo NES and Nintendo 64 Virtual Console game. Offer ends in late October. Life goes on.
