TVii for Wii U confirmed for Europe

While the Wii U isn’t quite here yet, Nintendo have now confirmed that European users will be getting some of the TVii services to match the American version of the console. The functionality was an American only originally, but Nintendo have now confirmed that “at some point during 2013” the functionality will be available in Europe too.

TVii brings streaming functionality and and video on demand media content to the gamepad and Wii U console, this will include services such as Netflix and Youtube. I would also expect iplayer for the UK as the Wii can already do this.

The Wii U is due out in Europe this week, November 30th.
