Wii U – Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon won’t work at launch

Video on demand services, don’t expect Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and Netflix to work on day one. Nintendo now says that these services will be available “in the coming weeks.” How long away that means we don’t know, but they sure won’t be ready for November 18th. 

If that wasn’t bad enough the “TVii” feature is now slated for December. The TVii functionality, exclusive to the US and Canada, puts a TV program guide on the Wii U GamePad, and allows users to use the pad to view and control programming from cable and satellite, along with YouTube and popular video on demand services. Through the Wii U, TVii also allows commenting and sharing via Twitter, Facebook, and Miiverse.
