Looks like YouTube is finally available. That was fast.

For the Wii U. The Wii app is not yet out in Canada.

EDIT: Wii Youtube App is now available in Canada (and other countries in the Americas)

Thanks for the heads up, just downloaded the update for it. Got a pretty nice interface, and videos have good quality and load fast.

I'll probably just use my computer for YT all the time since my computer is right here in the same room as my Wii U, but it's still a nice app for in case I want to watch something with my dad or brother (computer doesn't have speakers, just a headphone jack).

I'm kind of confused. It won't let me download it from the eShop, as it's telling me I already have the software downloaded, and opening the software on the menu doesn't allow me to download an update. What am I doing wrong?

I had to delete the app that's on the system already and then re-download it from the eShop. The eShop may still give you a message saying that the software's already there but it'll let you download it anyway.

Thanks for the tip! This morning I opened the app and it automatically started downloading the update, so I dunno what was up.

You're better off using YouTube from the browser until they actually make a real YouTube app meant for the Wii U.
