RiiConnect24 Logo

Welcome to RiiConnect24.

RiiConnect24 allows the discontinued WiiConnect24 service to be used again, which kept your Wii connected to the Internet in Standby mode 24/7.

What can you do with it? How to Connect

Things you can use again with RiiConnect24


Send mail to other people connected to RiiConnect24 through the Wii Message Board on Wii Menu. Your Wii's blue disc light will glow when you receive a message! You can also send them Miis and pictures!

News Channel

Stay up to date with the latest news headlines sent to your Wii in a fun way. You're able to view the locations that the news takes place using a globe, or you can see the headlines as a slideshow.

Forecast Channel

Take a look at the local weather or anywhere around the world using a Globe. You're able to view the current weather on the Wii Menu, or today or tomorrow's weather for instance.
