WADs are channels that can be installed on the Nintendo Wii. Examples of WAD channels are the Game Disc channel, Internet channel and the Shop channel. When using a modded Nintendo Wii, users have the option of home brew media players as well as emulators. It is useful to create your own emulator or media player WAD channels so you can boot the home brew Wii applications directly from the Wii's main menu.
