The Nintendo Channel, known as the Everybody's Nintendo Channel (みんなのニンテンドーチャンネル Minna no Nintendō Channeru) in Japan, was an online service through the use of WiiConnect24 on the Wii by Nintendo. The channel offered viewing of videos from Nintendo, support for reading through game articles and also a DS Download Station for the Nintendo DS to play demo versions of DS games. You could also send recommendations to Nintendo about a Wii/DS game that you played, although DS games had to be used by putting a cartridge in the system (Slot-1) to do the survey.

The Nintendo Channel debuted in 2007 in all regions, and an update was released at a later point which changed the user interface and various other things.

A show, called Nintendo Week, based on shows like Washington Week, was seen on the Nintendo Channel as well.

Nintendo ended support for the Nintendo Channel on June 28, 2013 along with 4 more Wii channels.
