Wii no Ma Channel coming to Japanese Wii’s on May 1st

On May 1st, Japanese Wii owners will get a new Wii Channel called Wii no Ma Channel. This is a video channel where you can download/stream videos. There will probably be both free and paid content, but no information on what content yet.

The channel is like a living room where you can have upto 8 Miis. Another cool features is that you can download from the Wii to the DSi. To make that happen, you need to dowload Dokodemo Wii no Ma from the DSiShop. (Source: GoNintendo.om)

This looks like a cool channel, can be anyway. But I wonder why Nintendo make you go thorugh the Wii to get the video onto the Nintendo DSi. Why can’t they let gamers to download movies right to DSi? It would be much easier.

If you read Japanese, you can check out the official pages at Nintendo of Japan, or you can just watch the pictures.

Here are som video of the Wii no Ma Channel taken from Gametrailer.com.
