Although nobody bought the Wii U specifically for Nintendo TVii, the news of its delay was at least disappointing for early adopters hoping to check out this curious little feature that gives users the ability to control their Tivo and have a unified Video on Demand app combining Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant Video. Today, Nintendo has announced that the TVii service will finally come online for the U.S. and Canada territories tomorrow, December 20th. It has some caveats however.
Most of the features talked about will come online such as Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and the ability to post your thoughts on Miiverse through TVii among others, but two functionalities, Netflix and Tivo integration, will not be available until earlier next year. Nintendo is quick to point out that Netflix will still be available through the separate Netflix app.
