It's over. From what I understand all you can do is download what you already purchased from your account.
Last stuff I downloaded was Bit.Trip Beat (but already own Bit.Trip Complete, so not much of a loss if I forgot it), changed my region temporarily to England and back to get use the download ticket that grants the free Jam With The Band Live Channel/Speaker Channel and then the Wii U transfer tool (I don't want to use it but probably better to have it than have not).
In hindsight, if I knew changing regions was so easy (and doesn't seem to lose previously any downloaded games just Wii Points) I would have changed it to get Castlevania Rebirth. I would have preferred to have the JwtBL Channel on my Wii U but can't change the Wii region on it because it linked to the Wii U NNID and was worried about how many blocks it would take up which I couldn't find the info for online. Then it turned out to be in the instruction manual. It's 82 blocks if anyone is wondering about it (or anyone searching for that info and stumbles along it here).
And for a final musical bookend (not in relation to the above text) to compliment the first post of this thread, here's the Wii Shop Channel/Mii Channel remix from Smash 4 (and now in Ulitmate) where the original WSC theme and this multi remixed theme with the WSC will live on.
