Nintendo TVii Launches

Lauren Arevalo-Downes   |  

Nintendo has confirmed the launch of the TVii service on Wii U for December 20. The service is designed to help users search for content and get recommendations from cable or satellite television and Web-based video services.

Users can also use the GamePad to post to Nintendo’s Miiverse, Facebook or Twitter and look up Internet-based information such as cast details, movie reviews and sports scores. However, the service only works with Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus and local cable or satellite services; Netflix and TiVo will have to wait until 2013.
