While Wii U owners in North America are able to enjoy movies and TV shows on Netflix, the streaming service isn’t as widespread in Europe. But Amazon-owned LoveFilm is, and the company confirmed that it will be available on the Wii U in Europe when it launches.
LoveFilm is available in a lot of European countries, but because of the complex issue of streaming rights, not everyone has access to it. It works just like Netflix — a monthly subscription allows you to stream movies and TV shows, and get them by mail as well.
Nintendo said a few days ago that the new Wii U media feature, Nintendo TVii, will be available in select European territories in 2013.
The Wii U launches in Europe in just a few days, on November 30. It’ll retail for €299 for the Basic set and €349 for the Deluxe set. In the UK, the Basic set will retail for £249 and Deluxe for £299.
