If you were champing at the bit to mess around with Wii U’s new TVii and Video on Demand services (Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video) as soon as the system launched, slow your roll, kid. And stop champing at that bit. It’s kind of a weird thing for a human to be doing.
It turns out that the Nintendo TVii app that’s meant to revolutionize how people watch TV with their consoles won’t be activated until December! This was previously announced as a day-one feature. :o/
And Video on Demand services are due “in the coming weeks.” I’m unsure if this includes the YouTube app.
Unless other plans have changed, Miiverse, eShop, Wii U Chat, and the built-in browser will be available at launch, as will the ability to use the GamePad as a TV remote.
