3DS TV service hits Japan tomorrow

First programming schedule released

A 'Spot Pass TV' service for the Nintendo 3DS will be launched tomorrow in Japan.

The service comes thanks to Nintendo teaming up with Fuji Television and Nippon Television.


The service is called "Itsu no Ma Ni Terebi", which apparently is similar to the Japanese naming of Spot Pass, and will use the 3DS' online download system to pick up new bits of original 3D video daily.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata talked about the service last week. The content is free but comes with adverts.

Earlier this year Sky confirmed it will supply 3D content for the Nintendo 3DS. Under the terms of the deal, Sky will supply "short-form" 3D content from across sports, entertainment and documentaries.
