Nintendo Launches TVii Service


On Dec. 20, Nintendo introduced Nintendo TVii, a free, integrated service that combines what you watch and how you watch into a second-screen experience on the new Wii U GamePad controller.

Nintendo TVii maximizes Wii U owners' current cable, satellite and video-on-demand services by pulling all of their available content sources - such as a Comcast cable package or Hulu Plus subscription - into one place. Once users find the show, sporting event or movie they want, they press an icon and Nintendo TVii does the rest.

In addition to simplifying finding and watching video content, Nintendo TVii also includes a series of social features that enable Wii U owners to share experiences and moments with friends as they are happening on live TV. People can engage with others by commenting and sharing on Miiverse, Facebook and Twitter.

Nintendo TVii requires no additional equipment and can be enjoyed with very little setup. Wii U owners can also discover more information about what they're watching by accessing information on the GamePad via an Internet connection, including cast details, movie reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and sports data such as live stats and scores.

Nintendo TVii launches in the United States and Canada on Dec. 20. At launch, the service will support cable and satellite providers in both regions, as well as direct integration with Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus subscriptions in the United States. Further integration with Netflix subscriptions and TiVo are expected in early 2013 in the United States. Wii U owners with a Netflix subscription can still access the Netflix application from the Wii U system's main menu.

All elements of the Nintendo TVii service are included in the purchase price of the Wii U system. Users will define which services they currently subscribe to - including the channel lineup in their cable package and video-on-demand service subscriptions ? as part of the setup process.
