Downloading Opera on Wii (added bonus it’s also free)

I was asked over Twitter today “how do you get Opera on Wii”. The answer was too long to Tweet (there you see, blogging does trump Twitter sometimes) so below is a quick summary:

  1. Go to Wii-ware.
  2. Click Start.
  3. Click Shopping.
  4. Choose Wii Channel (third choice after Virtual Console and Wii-ware).
  5. Scroll to bottom of list and click Internet Channel.
  6. Download and select whether to save to Wii itself or to SD card.
  7. Info page – “This software supports the Wiimote and selected keyboards”. Click OK.
  8. Do you want to update/install? Click OK.
  9. Go back to the Wii menu click “Internet channel” and away you go.

Thank you to @ourmaninjapan for the pointers.

As an extra bonus Nintendo are now offering the Wii Internet Channel for free. If you want to check it out but don’t have a Wii there’s plenty of information about it in the My Opera Wii community.
