Nintendo's Wii U Gives You Live TV and DVR Access  Print E-mail
Home Theater News What Is On In HD News

You may see Nintendo's new system touted as revolutionary for its unique control schemes, but it’s the home theater connectivity that's particularly interesting.  The Wii U is the first console that's able to play nice with a vast majority of your video content. 

The Wii U, which launches at $299 when it hits US shores on November 19th, will be able to stream content from your DVR, whether recorded or live via a program called TVii.  The tablet-like Game Pad controller will be used as a touchscreen remote and will allow you to search across your DVR, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon all at once.  If only it handled Blu-ray, we'd be set.  Perhaps this is something we can expect to see in Microsoft or Sony's next consoles.
