    Cool Help! Softmod PAL Wii without PAL games :-(

    Hello Folks,

    First of all I would like to introduce myself as this is my first post here. I am from Italy and I moved to the U.S. a couple of years ago. I am a big Nintendo fan and I currently own a PAL Wii, a NDS, a Nintendo 64, Super Nintendo, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and many many games

    This is my problem. When I moved to the U.S., I brought with me my beloved Wii PAL from Italy. Yesterday I finally purchased a plasma TV and I was so glad to play with my Wii again. But I also wanted to use the Wii to watch Netflix, as I am a subscriber of their great streaming service. I read that they had a Wii channel which can be used to stream movies on my TV. I searched for it, but I did not find it...because my Wii is set on the EU store and it does not contain the Netflix channel

    I searched on the 'net () and I found instructions on how to softmod the Wii and change the country and shop settings but......it seems like that in order to do this, you need a game (Lego Indiana Jones). At the beginning I thought "no problem, I'll rent it from Blockbuster" but then I realized "ouch, it will be NTSC and my PAL Wii will not play it".

    So here is the one million dollar question: is there any way I can softmod my PAL Wii from here (U.S.) where I don't have access to PAL games? Keep in mind that my only goal is to install the Netflix channel...I am not interested in using downloaded games.

    Any help will be very much appreciated! Thanks!

    Are you sure? From the guides that I read so far, it seems that you need to run the game in order to mod the Wii and if I use the NTSC game on my PAL Wii, the Wii will not read it. Am I missing something?
