Nintendo TVii: the service will end on August 11th in North America

Nintendo TVii is one of the features that Nintendo highlighted during the big press conference fo the Wii U, back in September 2012. It was only launched in North America and Japan, as the European launch was ultimately cancelled after many months of delays (in fact, the Nintendo TVii icon was even removed via the first Firmware update for the Wii U in over 6 months, back in June).

But unfortunately, Nintendo TVii will soon be a thing of the past in the North America too: a few hours ago, Nintendo announced on Miiverse that the service would be terminated on August 11th, 3PM PDT / 6PM EDT. The company didn’t give any reason for this, but confirmed that the Miiverse community for the service would also be closed at the same time.

Here’s the message posted on Miiverse:

After almost 3 years of finding, watching and engaging with Nintendo TVii, we will be ending the service on August 11, 2015 at 3:00pm PT. At the same time, we will be closing the Nintendo TVii Miiverse community.


We sincerely thank you for all of your engagement within the community and the Nintendo TVii service. We look forward to your contributions within our many other Miiverse communities.
