Nintendo TVii is Shutting Down

Nintendo TVii Service Shuts Down Next Month.

One of the big selling points of the Wii U when it launched in late 2012, it provides access to cable and satellite TV channels, as well as video on demand services like Netflix and Hulu. As much as we’re sure Nintendo had good intentions when they launched the service, safe to say that it never really took off in a big way, which is why it does not come as a complete surprise to learn that Nintendo will be shutting the service down come 11th of August.

This news came a short while after revealing the significant changes done to the Miiverse and especially the Miiverse chat and making it only game-related to avoid long chats. Well, according to the FAQ you can access here, “Every service has a life cycle, and it is time to focus our resources on other projects.” At the time Nintendo has nothing to announce when it comes to a TVii replacement. The company has announced the shutdown on their Miiverse website which reads, “After almost 3 years of finding, watching and engaging with Nintendo TVii, we will be ending the service on August 11, 2015 at 3:00pm PT.

This didn’t come as much of a surprise since the service isn’t really popular and Nintendo weren’t that interested to bring it to European regions a while ago.
