Tune in to a Wii channel where fun always takes top billing! The Kirby TV Channel is available to download via the Wii Shop Channel, and enables you to watch over 40 episodes of a fun-filled Kirby animation series – all for free!
This channel's online functionality has been shut down as of October, 2012 and works in neither Dolphin or on Wii hardware.
WiiConnect24 Revival Services
Both RiiConnect24 and WiiLink can provide WiiConnect24 support in Dolphin through a variety of means. As of, users can automatically redirect to use the WiiLink service in Dolphin without needing to patch channels or manually download VFF files outside of the emulator. This can be enabled in `Options -> Configuration -> Wii` under the "Enable WiiConnect24 via WiiLink" setting.
Stale VFF Files
As of, Dolphin now supports downloading VFF files from WiiConnect24 services just like a real Wii. This allows users to connect to services like RiiConnect24 and WiiLink without the need for a VFF Downloader. Users that have previous used a VFF downloader may need to delete old VFF files before the new services will work. This is because VFF files downloaded with some revisions of the VFF downloader have been hacked to never expire, so the emulated system will never attempt to download new ones.
