Globo managed to get some hands-on time with Netflix running on Wii U. As you can see from the images, you can switch from the movie or television program that’s streaming on your television and watch it via the Wii U GamePad. It looks as though the majority of the functionality of watching it on your television is replicated on the Wii U GamePad.
AWESOME! thats gonna be great!
That’s quite cool because of the option for big or little screen.
I can see myself using this alot since I already use the Netflix on my xbox and wii. This would allow me to take it anywhere in the house instead of pausing it lol
Wow… excellent point
The controller won’t be able to connect with the console from about over 8 or so metres, so no watching your films on the toilet mate sorry
yup plus you can watch your program on your gamepad anytime :D . WiiU!!!
lol either the wiiu controller is smaller than i thought or that person’s hand is huge
Nice little add on for Wii U there
Netflix! Better than the other consoles!
Looks neat for some on the go ‘Biggest Loser’
So this stuff about SmartGlass is basically automatic on the Wii U.
Although it’s probably not coming to wii u would anyone like to see a sky player or skygo on the console? Even though we won’t leave the house when watching.
Yes, quick someone call nintendo!
This just to prove the world… Nintendo doesn’t need a DVD or a highly expensive Blu-Ray drive to watch movies. I’m glad that Nintendo having streaming movies and TV shows via Netflix app on the Wii U.
But there are a few people who don’t have wifi or fast enough connection to enjoy without buffering
Yea and lost of shows are from USA so other countries can’t enjoy netflix, they will want to see shows that are not from America.
THIS IS THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION AND NINTENDO DID IT FIRST
Lol, 30 Rock.
I’ve been wondering… does the gamepad have built-in stereo speakers and/or P2 headphone port?
Yes it does
Just needs lovefilm now.
Im so happy Hulu plus,Netflix and Youtube :D now if we can allow apps like Crunchyroll and the funimation App i would be a super happy man.
Meh, can’t even use it where I live…
With so many apps to come on the Wii U, the two rivals are gonna blow off some STEAM.
1. Why would i watch a film on a Wii U gamepad when there is a big TV in the same room?
2. How could i hear a film on a Wii U gamepad if somebody else is watching a big TV in the same room?
Does the Wii U gamepad have a headphone socket?
NO headphone socket?
THIS SHIT = EPIC FAIL!!
Hobo… what the hell are you doing here? This is My Nintendo News blog, Not The Troll Show. Bashing Nintendo’s next gen console won’t heal your ass. And since you’re blind as a fucking bat, the Wii U Game Pad has a freaking headphone socket!!! Furthermore, you can switch views from the HDTV to the Game Pad.
When will you ever learn? Think before you react!
Get N or GTFO!!!!!!
U MAD BRO?
Nope, but Wii U mad sucka?
It does have a headphone socket and volume control, they should it at e3….retard
Pay close attention to 2:57
Why should i watch that shit?
Makes a change from all the other baby rubbish Nintendo showed at E3 i suppose …
Wii U is gonna be one expensive paperweight! XD
That’s because you failed at observing the Game Pad, you failed at understand Nintendo’s newest game console, and you don’t fucking belong here because your trolling ass is EXPOSED for life. Have fun playing Sesame Street on your Kinect and Wonderbook on your DildoStation Move.
You dont know what paper weight is until youve played thw vita haha
Vita? I thought it was called the PlayStation Titanic. LOL!!!!!!
It has a headphone jacks. It Also has stereo speakers. Also u can leave the room.
Actually yes, the Wii U GamePad DOES have a 3.5mm headphone jack!
ok so why is everyone saying 8 meter range is short? whats that like 25ish feet thats pretty far, bathroom at least maybe even bedroom range
A simple idea, but a nice touch! I generally use my PS3 for Netflix, but who knows, this looks like it’ll be a pretty awesome way to use it!
sweet – now to get netflix for Australia…
I was thinking the same thing actually. Hopefully Netflix will come so people like you and I can rent some awesome movies!!!
Reblogged this on NintendoGlobe and commented:
Netflix will be great for those in North America but those elsewhere will have to hope and pray that the innovation heads worldwide.
That’s cool, but it probably won’t apply to me because I don’t live in America or have a credit card. I’ll just have to settle for playing games then. Leave luck to heaven.
Watch and observe…
OMG I LOVE ALEC BALDWIN!! (Having a hard on right now) LoL
