It's nice to see these streaming services becoming available for use; it makes the lack of Nintendo TVii sting a little less.

Yay! Maybe I will celebrate by watching the Adventure Time that I purchased there. :D

This is great news for me. This is the video streaming service I currently have a subscription for, so more awesome uses for my Wii U.

Don't see it posted elsewhere, but YouTube is up too. Doesn't seem to work off-tv though. This makes the browser the best place to watch YouTube in my opinion.

YouTube on the browser completely blows the Youtube app out of the water. It loads much faster, it allows off-tv play, fast-forwarding/rewinding is much faster (which also loads almost immediately back to the video when you stop), you can browse other stuff on the web while watching, you can easily adjust the quality, you can view comments while watching the video, etc.

Playing YouTube videos in the browser is superior in almost everyway I can think of. Unless people only like to navigate YouTube with a controller with big text and big icons only on the TV, not the gamepad.

After trying the YT app, I agree. I prefer just using the internet browser, for the reasons mentioned.

Very sweet how quick these new feature updates are coming in - makes me giddy for the next major Wii U update [oh the possibilities]!

... Gonna have a fair bit to download and install come next Thurs [or Friday] here in the UK, though xD
