Nintendo announced today that Netflix is now available in Nintendo TVii. There is nothing to update; Netflix will automatically appear as an option when appropriate. According to the Wii U facebook page:
Netflix has arrived on Nintendo TVii! Now you can find even more of your favorite TV shows and movies right from your Wii U GamePad. You don’t need to make any update to your profile – Netflix will automatically appear as a viewing option as long as the program is supported by their streaming service.
While I was never impressed with Nintendo TVii, the addition of Netflix will definitely have me checking it out again. Do you use Nintendo TVii regularly? Will having Netflix as a viewing option influence your usage? Let us know in the comments below.
