A Wii U advertisement that was spotted in UK retail outlet GAME states that the BBC’s iPlayer service is coming to Wii U. To be honest it was expected as it’s widely available on a variety of entertainment devices, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. Still, it’s nice to know that it will be available on Wii U presumably at launch.

  1. I highly doubt the BBC will have something ready at launch…Although if the browser is available immediately and has flash it might be supported directly through the website anyway

  3. BBC’s version of Nintendo TVii. At least that’s good news for the Europeans who want to watch their favorite shows and streaming movies.

  4. I knew this would proabley be on Wii U as it was on the Wii as well as the 360 and PS3.
    I wonder if it would be possible for Nintendo and the BBC to put BBC iPlayer on the 3DS as I know in the US the 3DS has Netflix.
