Nintendo TVii coming to select European countries in 2013

Nintendo confirms the new Wii U video service for select European regions in 2013.

Nintendo TViiWhile the Wii U will be getting the Nintendo TVii app next month in North America, it’s been uncertain whether other territories will receive it at all.

Now Nintendo has announced that select European countries will be getting Nintendo TVii app in the beginning of next year. The news was confirmed by Nintendo UK, which means that the UK will likely be one of the countries/territories to get it.

Nintendo previously said that they were uncertain about Nintendo TVii in Europe because deals with cable and content providers had to be negotiated for each country — and there are dozens in the EU. It’s much easier to bring the service to North America, where only the US and Canada have to be dealt with.

Nintendo TVii integrates television, movies and content streaming, and even DVRs into one place, where users can browse and watch content of all sorts. For more, check out some of the screenshots of the service.

    • BLINDER2

    • revolution5268

      how did you get negative votes, i don’t see anything wrong here.

    • Nintedward

      Yeh this is AWESOME NEWS!!!! for us UK citizens. Sounds like a must have feature, And UK TV is on Par with US in terms of Channel amount etc, So it makes sense. In a Country like Bosnia (no offence) there is limited TV and wiiu supply , so it makes no sense.

      I am getting my Wiiu on Thursday at 3pm (broken street date!). My store is no longer doing a midnight launch (slashed supply) and I was complaining to the guy in the shop! So he said ”well , I’m taking mine home in thursday so you can too as long as you don’t connect it to the internet”.

      So yeh I shall be first in Europe along with everybody else who will be breaking the street date.

      • qwerty

        hopefully ireland gets it, although im not hopeful well be one of their prioities, being a small island.

        • Nintedward

          I hope Ireland gets it too. Half my family is Irish! and I’m over there quite a lot , so that would be cool!

    • Master of Awesomeness

      Whoever gave that a thumbs down is an idiot. This also apples to anyone who thumbs me down for showing support for another person.

    • prettypinkpanacea

      Ditto. It would be nice to enjoy all the features of the wii u, including the TVii, on our sub-tropical Island.

      • edward montgomery

        The amount of flaws on wii u is growing day by day

    • Nintedward

      I will be watching Neighbours on my wiiu gamepad!

      • Superstick

        I beat you to that. Saw last weeks episode. :P

        • Superstick

          On the gamepad :D

  • loko

    the ultimate console nintendo. bye bye nintendo

    • Trashz (Nintendo ID: ShadowAce)

      I think you mean “Bye bye Sony and Microsoft.” because the Wii U will blow the NextBox and PS4 out of the water.

    • retlaw

      Loko=stupid

  • PKMN Trainer Red

    Who keeps thumbing everyone down?

    • FireRed

      some Xbox/Sony fanboys make fake accounts just to dislike ppl?

    • Purple3DSXL

      I was just about to comment on the same thing. Some people are doing some serious trolling today…

      • Kidsonatree

        Ur a fucking idiot lol

    • revolution5268

      some dumbass drone who has soo many email accounts.
      it happen to MY nintendo news where aeolus has soo many emails that he dumb down all who comment positive about nintendo.

      and that how we don’t have that thumbs up/down anymore.

  • Master of Awesomeness

    Europe. Why Europe. Has Nintendo forgotten about all the other continents of the world? What about Asia, Africa and poor me in Australia?

    • GayBoi

      hahahaha xD …well i got 4 days left to play on a wii u so dont get to sad ..i hate sweden !!!

      • alexander

        Dont hate countries just because of something like that. i live in sweden and its great here, and i just hate when people say something like that.

    • Unity

      Maybe because Europe is a bigger market than Australia? Did you think of that?
      Of course Europe is prioritized over Australia. Same situation with Africa and Asia; both of them are bigger territories than Australia. It wouldn’t surprise me if Australia get it last, assuming they get it at all.

      • Master of Awesomeness

        Nice name, now relate that to your comment.

  • GayBoi

    i want my wii u NOW !!! ….i neeeeeeed tooo F*****ing wait in 4 days :’( ..i will know if it is good…i want Ac3 and tekken And zombie u and samuries worrios orchi somthing ^^ ….. i wanna play !! …why take it so long in eu :’( i hate sweden/Eu soo slow …yes i have boring on a cold day whith out snow on the boring shcool xD

  • nintendoododo

    I hope Finland gets this feature. Other countries? Meh no!

  • Bosmur

    Hey for those who have wii u’s, are there any gamecube games in the eshop? If so what are they?

  • Burgertime

    I hope that Nintendo will release a dlna application for the Wii U. Which in my case would add TV and movies on the Wii U. Would be really sweet to browse the content of the htpc on the gamepad and sweep it on to the TV. :D

  • alexander

    I hope nintendo tc comes to sweden!

  • TheOne

    Blablabla…Bullshit at its best…

  • TheDavyStar

    *Fist pump!*

  • Sylux

    “select countries” in Europe in other woede, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark and so on for smaller countries are being screwed zzz Europe FTL, always shiet there, soms goud things to though, but as long as the union doesn’t act like one union parts of Europe het screwed again >_<

    Anyways I saw the very first WiiU commercial last weekend in the Netherlands, as commercials went arround in the uk aswel as in Germany for almost 2 weeks already, I know in Holland we most likely won't get wiiU tvii, bummer. But we'll see next year I suppose.

  • Some Body

    Why they do not say in which countries tvii become launched

  • HyperSonicN1

    “select European countries”
    UK, Vatican City, San Marino, Liechtenstein, Republic of Monaco.

    I don’t know if I’m joking or actually fearing that Belgium isn’t “selected”

  • Gamecube U

    I hope they bring Netflix to the 3DS in Europe too.
