    Wii's Internet Channel and ESPN 360

    I thought I would post this in the basketball forum since there is a game on 360 in a half an hour. I recently found that the Wii Internet Channel is free to download on the Wii. I downloaded it and I have it working, but when I try to open ESPN360, I can get to the main page but I cant get any of the games to open up. I am sure it has to do with some add ons dealing with video players, but I thought I would see if any of you have tried this with any success.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Wii's Internet Channel and ESPN 360

    ESPN will have to support whatever the browser is that the Wii happens to use, and the Wii Operating System.

    I'm pretty sure you're out of luck on this one. Good idea though!

    Re: Wii's Internet Channel and ESPN 360

    You have to download a plugin to use ESPN 360, so it won't work on the ps3/wii.

    Re: Wii's Internet Channel and ESPN 360

    i watch 360 on my tv all the time!!!

    all you have to do is get an old desktop tower with a decent processor and ram and set your tv up as your monitor. not only can you do that, but i also have over 5000 games downloaded from atari to playstation 2 and i run them with emulators and computer controllers.

    its very easy to do and well worth it considering you can get an old tower that will work from $20-$100.

    just thought id pass that along...




    In the deed the glory..........the glory is above!

    I would think so... I have been able to get most video sources, such as Clone Zone, to work on my PS3.
