Nintendo Wii Channel List

The Nintendo Wii main interface is designed based on channels.

Wii Channels You have boxes to choose which channel you want to use. This image shows the original channel listing, which was available on launch.

Each button becomes animated in turn, showing a little image of what the channel is about. Let's start from the top left.

Game Channel
The top left icon, shaped like a CD, lets you play the currently loaded game. Click the icon and get playing!

Mii Channel
The next icon to the right is the Mii profile channel. This is where all the gamers organize their information, track high scores, and create a personal avatar.

Photo Channel
The photo channel is great if you have a SD card for your camera - but is sort of iffy if you're not using a SD.
