Nintendo has revealed that the entertainment app will release in selected European regions in 2013, and has promised to announce more details "in due course".
Originally confirmed for North America only, Nintendo hinted at a worldwide TVii release in a recent interview.
Nintendo TVii is a feature letting users browse and watch live television, integrate with TiVo DVRs and browse content through various streaming services in a single app.
It was originally thought that Nintendo TVii would be included in the system's day one patch to add online features like Miiverse, Wii U Chat and the system's eShop.
Instead, the feature will release in December through a free downloadable update.
