PlayOn is a streaming service that lets you stream all sorts of TV channels to your devices.

It looks to be a great alternative while we’re waiting for NintendoTVii. Getting the service to work on the Wii U is a bit tricky, since it’s not a standalone Wii U app. You can follow the instructions here on how to get it to work.
