You know all those movies you bought from Apple? Um, well, think different: You didn't

It does apply to Nintendo, they took down their Wii Shop Channel. Either you keep your DRM'd downloads (tied to your machine) on SD card or you lose them. If your Wii breaks or is stolen, tough luck. As the shop is closed, you can't ring Nintendo to get them to transfer your purchases to the new machine's account or a Wii U and download them again.
