Nintendo unveil TVii for Wii U
Further to its announcement at E3 2012, more details for Nintendo TVii in North America have been annnounced.
Nintendo today unveiled further details about Nintendo TVii for Wii U during its press event in New York City.
TVii was first announced at E3 2012, containing a TiVO-powered DVR across several providers -Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant and cable- but at this time it’s unclear wether the DVR is built into the Wii U or a seperate entity.
Zach Fountain, Nintendo’s director of strategic partnership called TVii a ‘personalised program guide’, demonstrating the text, category and rotary search functions the service offers.
As of now, TVii has only been formally announced in North America for US and Canadian Wii U owners and seeking expansion into the Americas in due course.
Nintendo TVii is free with the purchase of a Wii U, launching 18th November in North America, 30th November in Europe and 8th December in Japan.
