Report: Nintendo negotiating Wii U video content streaming

It makes sense. More individuals are streaming Netflix on their consoles and, as of last summer, the Wii was used to stream Netflix most often. According to a report on AdWeek, Nintendo is working out deals with major content providers right now for the Wii's successor, the Wii U.

The story is too old to be commented.

Of course it's going to have video streaming

i have netflix on all 3 (360/ps3/wii) and wii is the one i would least of all. Reason...non-hd streaming. I enjoy using netflix on the 360 and ps3 for that reason.

It is only obvious the wii-u will get the same services as the wii but this time they will be hd.

This is just not Netflix. These are cable providers to satellite tv even at&ts uverse get it. This card in the wiiu is very capable of handling these things.

I thought the ps3 was used to stream netflix more often.

Nah, PS3 owners used Netflix more than anything else on their PS3s, that's what you're thinking about. More PS3 owners use Netflix than they do game, use Home, internet browsing, etc.

bit of a waste that PS3 gamers get more games then really

I think Nintendo is serious about getting the hardcore gamers on board.
Firts the third party support of games never launched on a Nintendo system. (Tekken, the new ninja gaiden, rumors of gta V)

Hulu plus support and now this.

I think Nintendo has always been serious in getting core gamers on board. I mean the Cube had "Kiddie" all over it, so they have come along way since then.

Is this news? I really thought video service apps where a shoe in like a online network and Mario games. Of course they're going to have video service apps.

Well, it's a pretty good thing to have confirmed (eh, rumored) for those who are really looking forward to playing Netflix on their console of choice.

It's not just video service apps. They've been talking to comcast and cable service providers too. So I imagine they want some type of cable service where you can watch through the TV and through maybe your controller too.

Actually nextflix came out with a report a couple months back and said Wii user used nextflix more that any other console.
