Wii U 'TVii' coming next month Nintendo has announced that the highly-anticipated "TVii" feature will launch next month, and not at launch.
The service, which is for U.S. and Canadian Wii U owners only, places a full TV program guide on the Wii U's touch GamePad, allowing users to view or control programming from cable or satellite.

Additionally, TViii lets users control YouTube and other video on demand services. You can also comment on Twitter, Facebook and Miiverse.

Unfortunately, some of the most popular video-on-demand services will not be available for a few weeks, including Hulu Plus, Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.

The Wii U Basic and Deluxe bundles are set for release tomorrow, with the base model costing $300 and the deluxe edition selling for $350. The base model will include the Wii U console with 8GB memory and the Wii U GamePad in all white. The deluxe edition comes with 32GB and a GamePad charging cradle. Additionally, it will come bundled with the game NintendoLand.
