Nintendo TVii

Nintendo is set to debut the free Nintendo TVii service today for the Wii U that integrates the television viewing experience into a seamless second-screen experience using the Wii U GamePad.

Nintendo TVii gives Wii U owners a single place to access all of their viewing content. The service pulls all available content from sources such as cable subscriptions, statellite, video-on-demand services and subscription-based services such as Hulu Plus into one organized screen. This will allow Wii U users to experience their favorite shows whenever they can.

Gamers will also be able to share their experiences with friends as they watch television with the new social features. The discussion continues on Miiverse, Facebook and Twitter, all made easy on the touch-screen GamePad.

The service requires no additional equipment and little setup, making for a truly integrated experience. Nintendo TVii users have easy access to information from Rotten Tomatoes movie reviews to sports stats and scores. All that is made for easier viewing on the more-organized GamePad while the show or movie plays on the real television.

Nintendo TVii is launching today in the U.S. and Canada. The service has support from cable and satellite providers in both countries, as well as integration with Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus subscriptions in the United States. Netflix subscriptions and TiVo are expected to be a part of the service at some point in early 2013. Wii U owners with a Netflix subscription can still access Netflix from the Wii U system’s main menu and enjoy their favorite content accordingly.

The Wii U system parental controls can be used to ensure children are not allowed to view inappropriate conduct. Other options specific to the Nintendo TVii can be chosen in the Nintendo TVii settings. Each user can create a different profile and use their own settings.
