New Wii U service gives every member of the family his or her own personalized, easy-to-use second-screen viewing experience
Nintendo today announced the North American launch of Nintendo TVii, a free, integrated service for the recently launched Wii U console that combines what you watch and how you watch into one seamless, second-screen experience on the new Wii U GamePad controller. Nintendo TVii maximizes Wii U owners' current cable, satellite and video-on-demand services by pulling all of their available content sources - such as a Comcast cable package or Hulu Plus subscription - into one place.
Nintendo TVii also includes a series of social features that enable Wii U owners to share experiences and various moments with friends as they are happening on live TV. People can engage with others by commenting and sharing on Miiverse, Facebook and Twitter. Or they can comment, post or tweet about an incredible touchdown, a remarkable performance or a shocking plot twist, all using the personal screen of the Wii U GamePad.
