article imageNintendo Wii U's TVii service launches on December 20

By Can Tran     Dec 20, 2012 in Technology
On December 20, Nintendo Wii U owners in North America will be able to utilize Nintendo's TVii service which integrates your current cable, satellite, and on-demand services.
As of December 20, the Nintendo Wii U becomes a portable entertainment system. This is because of Nintendo's TVii service that will be available for all Wii U owners. Originally, the feature was supposed to be out earlier; but, it was delayed in North America until December 20. With TVii for you Wii U, all your viewing services will be put together in one place. Thus, you can access it all from your Wii U through the TVii service.
For example if you have cable, satellite, and/or an on-demand service, you can watch it all on the TVii service. If you live in North America, the TVii service supports services such as Bright House, Comcast, Dish Network, DirecTV, and so forth. However, nothing was said about anybody using Verizon FIOS for all their channels. Also, it is said that Wii U owners will also be able to enjoy the direct integration of streaming services of both Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus.
However, there's no direct integration with Netflix of TiVo yet; but, there will be in the future according to Nintendo. But, you can still download and use the individual Netflix app for the Nintendo Wii U. Just because there's no direct integration yet doesn't mean you cannot enjoy Netflix on your Wii U portable console. Also, there's an individual app for anybody that wants to enjoy watching videos on YouTube.
Perhaps there might be more options for direct integration soon with services such as HBO, Showtime, Crunchy Roll, Drama Fever, Redbox, and other on-demand services. But, you can still enjoy the direct integration with your current service and on-demand providers.
