Nintendo Introduces Nintendo TVii, But What’s In It for Canada?

Another new announcement from Nintendo regarding the Wii U is the introduction of Nintendo TVii, “an application that will let Wii U owners in the United States and Canada find, watch and engage with their favourite video entertainment in fun new ways. Using the GamePad controller, Nintendo TVii lets viewers seamlessly explore available video content from a variety of sources – including live TV and video-on-demand services such as Netflix – all in one easy-to-use interface.”

Of course, whenever such services tend to be introduced, there is always the question of how they will function in Canada. As you can see in the video above, they demonstrate such services as Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and TiVo, which are all distinctly American in nature. As a result, I’ll do what I can to find out what Nintendo TVii has to offer for Canadians and update as soon as I find out anything.
