Television Friend Channel
|Television Friend Channel|
|Release date(s)|| JP March 4, 2008|
|Input methods||Wii Remote|
The Television Friend Channel allows Wii users to check what programs are on the television. Content is provided by Guide Plus. The channel is said to be "very fun and Nintendo-esque". A "stamp" feature allows users to mark programs of interest with a Mii-themed stamp. If an e-mail address or mobile phone number has been registered in the address book, the channel can send out an alert 30 minutes prior to the start of the selected program. The channel tracks the stamps of all Wii users and allows users to rate programs on a five-star scale. Additionally, when the channel is active the Wii Remote can be used to change the TV's volume and channel so that users can tune into their shows by way of the channel. The Television Friend Channel launched in Japan on March 4, 2008. It is not going to be launched outside Japan, as most countries, unlike Japan, have a guide built into set-top boxes and/or TVs.
This channel's online functionality has been shut down as of June 28, 2013 and works in neither Dolphin or on Wii hardware.
