Nintendo of Japan announced on September 29th, 2017[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] that the Wii Shop Channel would be discontinued January 31st, 2019. However, users would no longer be able to add "Wii Points" to their account in order to purchase things on March 27th, 2018.

Quite a bit of the software available has been added to No-Intro's "Nintendo - Nintendo Wii (DLC)" database, but it's likely incomplete.

In addition, it was recently rediscovered how to access the Wii Shop Channel on a PC, so creating a project to download the public-facing version of the site is possible. See this WiiBrew page for details.[IAWcite.todayMemWeb]
