Shelly Palmer Radio Report – December 20, 2012

[wpaudio url=”″ text=”Click to play … ” dl=”0″]

Just over a month after the Wii U launched in North America, Nintendo is finally adding one of the console’s most unique features in an update later today: TVii. TVii lets you look up your favorite shows or movies, add them to your list of favorites and discover new content – all through the GamePad controller. Once you find what you want to watch, TVii will show you how you can watch an episode: through your existing cable or satellite channels (if you’ve connected it through your Wii U), Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Instant Video. When watching sports, you will see stats, scores and more on your GamePad. Whatever you’re watching, you’ll be able to control your TV’s volume, channels and more through your GamePad controller. While the update is lacking a few features it’ll eventually have – most notably DVR capabilities through TiVo and full Netflix integration – this update should bring Wii U owners back who might have drifted away in the last month.
