Nintendo Unveils 'Nintendo TVii' App For Wii U

Nintendo unveiled the "Nintendo TVii" app for its new Wii U console today at its press event in New York.

The app, which runs as a "second screen experience" on the game pad, is personalised to each member of the household, with a separate set of recommendations and favourites for each profile. It connects not only to streaming services, but also also to a user's TiVo and live TV. In addition to movies and television, it also promises features for sports fans.

Ideally, the Wii U then becomes a tool to connect all of a user's TV and streaming services into one centralised location, and of course also features social tools like friend recommendations and (optional) connections to Twitter and Facebook.

Nintendo TVii charges no monthly fee and comes bundled with every Wii U.

    Whats the bet it doesn't work in Australia

      Considering they already said it will only work in Canada and USA and that they are only looking to expand in the Americas, I would bet you $1,000,000 that it isn't coming.

    Was not even mentioned in the Euro stream that i watched......
