Nintendo TVii to Discontinue in August 2015

One of the Wii U’s much-touted features before its 2012 launch was TVii. The thinking behind this app was to integrate cable and video streaming services into one package for Wii U owners to browse everything on the air. 2.5 years after launching in North America and Japan, Nintendo is shuttering the service. The shutdown goes into effect on August 11th at 3 PM PST. The announcement came from the TVii Miiverse community.

Nintendo TVii was launched in North America and Japan in December 2012, delayed after the Wii U’s original launch. It never launched in Europe or Australia due to licensing issues. The service never quite took off in its respective territores, which may be the cause for its removal.

Users will want to get in their last hours in Nintendo TVii and its Miiverse community before they’re gone in August.
