Nintendo TVii announced
Today as part of its Wii U announcement, Nintendo said it would include a new, free service on the console in the U.S. and Canada: Nintendo TVii.
The company said there are three parts to the service: a personalized guide for content, the ability to start the program from the GamePad (it's like a remote) and the ability to engage with friends over live TV.
