The Homebrew Channel (HBC) is an application loader created by fail0verflow, allowing users to load or install various Homebrew applications. Once it has been installed, users load the channel from the Wii System Menu like any other channel. It can launch or install from an SD or SDHC card or via TCP/USB Gecko using Wiiload. You can choose to install the Homebrew Channel via the HackMii Installer.

The Homebrew Channel is not typically used for launching custom track modifications, but can be used to install Riivolution and the CTGP Revolution Channel, among other things.
