Nintendo Is Charging People To Change TV Channels

With Nintendo TVii, the Kyoto-based game maker is bringing streaming video to the GamePad. Starting on December 8 in Japan, gamers can watch the pictures as they fly through the air on the comfort of the Wii U GamePad. But if you want easy channel-changing on your Nintendo TVii, you must barf up extra cash.

On December 8, Nintendo is also launching an add-on for Nintendo TVii that allows Wii U owners the ability to switch changes via the GamePad. The Wii U GamePad can be used as a television remote control, but if you want to use that same function for Nintendo TVii, Nintendo is charging ¥100 ($1.22).

Nintendo's video streaming service was unveiled this September in New York. Earlier this month, Nintendo delayed the service for the North American Wii U launch.
