Nintendo's latest gaming console, the Wii U, just launched. And Netflix is already raring to go.
The company's popular web streaming service is immediately available for use on the Wii U. Netflix says that the experience on the new system is "designed to take advantage of the console’s unique two-screen experience for the best browsing and viewing experience." (Yes, they actually said the word "experience" three times in one sentence.)
When browsing, movies and TV shows and detailed information are shown on both the TV and GamePad so everyone in the room can see all of the TV shows and movies available. Scrolling or browsing is shown both on the TV and GamePad.
According to Netflix, you can also watch videos on just the Gamepad. That's a good feature for those who do not own tablets but like to bring their TV shows with them as they walk around the house.
"Netflix is available today on the Wii U home screen with the Wii U launch in the US and Canada," Netflix director of product innovation Chris Jaffe said in a statement. "Netflix members can sign-in for full access."
