These channels are usually preinstalled on a Wii and can't be deleted, but not all of these channels were available on all Wii revisions.
The Disc Channel is not a typical channel, but instead you use it to launch Wii Discs. If no Disc is inserted, it shows a Wii Disc and on Gamecube compatible models also a Gamecube Disc. It can't be launched in this state. Once a Disc is inserted, the Disc starts spinning until the game banner is loaded. It then shows a preview banner of the inserted game and usually plays a short track. If a Gamecube Disc was inserted, it shows a generic Gamecube titlescreen instead, and plays the startup jingle of the Gamecube in the background. The Disc Channel is preinstalled on all Wii models and can't be deleted. It is also the only Channel that can't be moved to a different spot on the Wii Menu.
The main purpose of the Mii Channel is creating Miis. The Mii Lobby can save up to 100 Miis. Up to ten of them can be marked as favorite. Wii games can use Miis from the Mii Lobby as background characters. They will use Miis marked as favorite more often in this case. Just as the Disc Channel, the Mii Channel is the only channel that is preinstalled on all Wii models, as many games require Miis to be played.
The Photo Channel is a preloaded channel on the Wii system that would display images from an already inserted SD card on the Wii console, with a ton of creativity sparkled as you can doodle on it, place stickers, make a puzzle out of your photo and even change the color variant to your image.
Photo Channel 1.1
An updated version of the Photo Channel loaded via Wii system updates.
Photo Channel 1.0 Restore Program
A free channel that was available only in the japanese Wii Shop Channel. It allows users to downgrade the Photo Channel 1.1 to the original version, if they own a Wii that came with the Photo Channel 1.1 preinstalled.
Wii Shop Channel
Get Connected Video Channel
This channel came preinstalled on later models of the standard Wii and the Wii Family Edition. It basically is a video, that shows how to connect your Wii to the internet and the possibilites of doing so. At the end of the video it is suggested to delete it. One should do so, as it uses almost all available blocks in the Wii memory. Once deleted there is no way to get it back, neither from the Wii Shop Channel nor by reformatting the console.
Wii Menu Manual
This channel is preinstalled on the Wii mini and the Wii Menu of the Wii U. It is a digital user manual of the Wii system, as these Wii models didn't come with a physical instruction booklet anymore. There is no way to delete it.
