Nintendo Announces TVii is Coming to an End this August in North America.

Nintendo announced today via Miiverse that the Wii U’s forgettable TVii service will be discontinued in North America on August 11th, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST. 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. Those who don’t know about the , basically it allows users to search and watch TV programs on their cable/satellite provider, as well as Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video via the Wii U GamePad’s controller. Nintendo TVii service was a bit limited in its rollout as it was released for the United States, Canada and Japan users only and was never released for European users. “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. Users could post to Miiverse or Twitter alongside the show’s synopsis, allowing them to comment on plot twists, sports plays, or awards shows in real time.

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.
