Wii U's Nintendo TVii confirmed for Europe

Streaming service no longer exclusive to the US

Nintendo's TVii service launches in the US and Canada in December, and while the video streaming service once remained only a mere possibility for Europe and Japan, Nintendo has now confirmed it will indeed launch in select European regions in 2013.


The video streaming service for Nitnendo's Wii U, known as Nintendo TVii, allows users to stream videos while using the GamePad to browse the TV guide, as well as subscribed sources.

Previously considered a US and Canada exclusive, a recent update on Nintendo's website reveals that "Nintendo TVii will be available in selected regions throughout Europe in 2013."

Still no word on an Australian launch, however.
