Video service launches in North America just in time for Christmas; heading to UK in early 2013.
Wii U's free video entertainment service Nintendo TVii launches in North America tomorrow, Nintendo has announced.
The video service, which Nintendo says will "transform and enhance the TV viewing experience", lets users browse available video content from cable, satellite and on-demand services, and use Miiverse, Facebook and Twitter to discuss it, all through the Wii U GamePad.
In addition, Nintendo TVii also lets users access further information about the content being viewed, including cast details and reviews when watching films, or live stats and scores for sports.
"After Dec. 20, you'll never look at your TV the same way again," said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime.
"Wii U owners have already experienced the transformative effect that the GamePad has on game play and social interaction. Nintendo TVii shows how the integrated second screen of the GamePad can also transform and enhance the TV viewing experience. Welcome to the new world of TVii."
The service is expected to launch in the UK early next year.
