I have just connected my old Wii and when I go to the shop (to download demos) it says its out of service. Is it turned off forever or can I somehow use it?

Does a newer Wii has been released ? I didn't turn on mine since 2-3 years now... –  Luc M Jan 25 '12 at 5:17

The Wii Shop channel is still up. Since you have an older Wii, try doing a system update and making sure that you are connected to the internet.

i did that, but it did not help. Maybe I cant use it from all countries? I do know that when I use xbox I mus lie about my country. –  IAdapter Jan 23 '11 at 17:40
    
According to Nintendo's website, if you were in the wrong country you would get an error message stating that. What is your EXACT error message? –  Ian Cordle Jan 23 '11 at 17:43
    
WiiConnect24 and Wii Shop Channel service is not currently being offered. I'm also bugged all the time to accept some mystery agreement that I can't find. –  IAdapter Jan 23 '11 at 18:04
    
That's odd. You might want to open up a new question, because WiiConnect24 is how you connect to the internet with Wii. –  Ian Cordle Jan 23 '11 at 18:17
    
No, Ian, WiiConnect24 is just the option to keep your Wii connected at all times to receive notifications from Nintendo even while the Wii is "off". It has nothing to do with connecting to the shop –  JohnoBoy Jan 25 '12 at 7:48
