The service will let users browse and view content from Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant as well as watch live TV and record shows using TiVo DVR.
Using the Wii U gamepad, users can select a television show to display all episodes available across all subscription networks as well as upcoming live episodes. It will also provide tabs for cast info, IMDB and Wikipedia to learn more about the show.
Selecting sports on the Wii U gamepad will display the scores of live ongoing matches while watching a match on the television screen. Users can also dig into a team's stats or replay match highlights they might have missed.
Nintendo TVii will support multiple profiles, allowing each member of the family to have their own personalised settings. Each profile can set its own favourite shows and receive recommendations based on their choices.
Users can also comment on shows through Facebook and Twitter directly through the Wii U gamepad, which, depending on the profile's settings, can also be seen by other Wii U users while watching the same show.
Nintendo TVii will be available as a free service on all Wii U consoles in North America at launch, with the possibility of the service coming to other countries at a later time.
The Wii U will launch on November 18 in North America and November 30 in Europe. It will be available in two bundles priced at $299 and $349.
