Check Mii Out Channel (called Mii Contest Channel in Europe) is a Wii Channel that allows Wii users to enter their Mii caricatures in online contests, as well as share them with the rest of the world.
There are two components to the Check Mii Out Channel; the Posting Plaza and the "Contest section".
The Posting Plaza is the area of the Check Mii Out Channel where users can submit and browse through Miis from all around the world. The user has the option of viewing up to 1,000 random Miis or search by name, by current and all-time favorites, or by a special number assigned to each Mii. Then, users can select posted Miis as their favorites or even save the Miis onto their own Wii console's Mii Channel, and use them in games, like Wii Sports.
This portion of the Check Mii Out Channel allows users to enter the Miis they've created into contests. The contests will generally two weeks long, with the first week used to submit Miis, and the second week used for voting. Types of contests can and will vary; contests ranging from recreating a celebrity to building a Mii based on a description will be posted for users to participate in.
Uses in Other Games
In Wii Sports Resort, there was an option to scan random Miis on the Check Mii Out Channel to use as background characters instead of just your own.
On June 28, 2013, services for the Check Mii Out Channel have ended. When a user attempts to access the channel after this date, an error message saying "The Check Mii Out Channel message service has been discontinued. Thanks for your participation." appears and prompts them to return to the Wii menu.
The track "Submission Plaza" is available with the CD Touch! Generations Soundtrack
