How do I browse the Wii shop channel online?

I'm wanting to see what classic games are available to download before I buy a Wii, is that possible?

Nintendo hasn't supported the Wii for a while. There's no online services for the Wii.

You can download games via the Wii shop channel can't you?

I think you can

Nope. It's not there. You can't play any games like Mario Kart online using a Wii either. You'll need a WiiU

I thought at a minimum, the Wii shop channel was still open to buy and download games?

you will probably have to emulate at this stage as a lot of titles just lost support online, i.e. the ability to buy them

Wii shop is still accessible but you can only check it using a Wii (or Wii U).

Also, be warned that I think you will have to add credit to your Wii shop account rather than be able to just pay the actual amount for a particular game. For example, if you want to buy a game for £2.79 (or whatever amount) you'll need to buy £10 credit rather than just pay the £2.99.

Yes but not via anything other than the Wii shop channel on the Wii itself.
