In order to write a Wii channel, I'm assuming you'd need a licensed Wii
developer's kit, which is probably prohibitively costly.  However, I've been
successful in scheduling recordings in MythWeb via the Opera browser on the
Wii, and it can also play back flash videos from a web page.  Live TV and
traditional channel surfing may be out of the question for now, but with the
browser alone you can get a decent amount of functionality.
