UK: The BBC iPlayer Has Been Discontinued On Wii U Today

The BBC iPlayer is full of quality TV programs which are free to watch if you have a TV license so it is sad to hear that the service has been discontinued today on the Wii U. The news was confirmed on the official Nintendo UK website. The move is due to an end in the license agreement between the BBC and Nintendo and today it has been fully discontinued meaning you’ll no longer be able to use the application on your system.

We would like to inform you that due to an end in the license agreement between the BBC and Nintendo, as of 31st August 2016 the BBC iPlayer application on Wii U will be removed from Nintendo eShop, and will no longer be available to download.

The BBC iPlayer service will continue, for those users who have it installed on their Wii U console, until 16th January 2017, after which the service will be fully discontinued.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for enjoying the BBC iPlayer application on Wii U.

    So many things wrong with this sentence, lol

  2. Interesting to say the least. I didn’t know Nintendo needed to have a continual agreement. Saying that we can always use the browser in the wii u to watch BBC iplayer. It just a shame it ended. David Walliams and friends was so funny.
