While Wii U owners in North America are able to enjoy movies and TV shows on Netflix, the streaming service isn’t as widespread in Europe. But Amazon-owned LoveFilm is, and the company confirmed that it will be available on the Wii U in Europe when it launches. LoveFilm is available in a lot of European countries, but because of the complex issue of streaming rights, not everyone has access to it. It works just like Netflix — a monthly subscription allows you to stream movies and TV shows, and get them by mail as well. Nintendo said a few days ago that the new Wii U media feature, Nintendo TVii, will be available in select European territories in 2013. The Wii U launches in Europe in just a few days, on November 30. It’ll retail for €299 for the Basic set and €349 for the Deluxe set. In the UK, the Basic set will retail for £249 and Deluxe for £299.

Edgars Treimanis i bought my wii u from amazon.fr only for 315 euros and plus lightning delivery to Latvia At the end it costs only 359.67 EUR. (TO LATVIA!!!!) Mickey Mouse This is great news even though I don’t subscribe to LoveFilm (yet). I tried Netflix on the Wii and just about every film I searched for wasn’t on the service, but LoveFilm has a much better choice. Being able to stream to my Wii U might just tempt me to watch LoveFilm on it. I think I’m right in saying that Lovefilm will be compatible with Nintendo TVii, I don’t see myself subscribing to any other streaming service compatible with Nintendo TVii so this is good. I hope it has pay per view, as I don’t watch enough movies and tv shows to justify a subscription. Michael Wakeman Will love film be one of the options in the US? your right about netflix though, every good movie on their takes 3 days to ship which is very annoying. Dat Guy Netflix finally exist in Sweden now so I hope we’ll get that service too 🙂 xdlugia If that means whole Scandinavia, then I support that. Yerted Also european only box what americans wont have is the Zombiu Bundle what includes one pro controller, price varies from 420-450€ 🙂 Almost as deluxe but: – No Nintendo Land + ZombiU Included + Nintendo Pro Controller — PS: CANT WAIT TO GET MY PREORDER Nintedward-3DS-WiiU 420-450 Euros ? Hycarumba! That’s way more than UK. My ZombiU bundle is £329 tax and VAT all included. £329 = 407 Euros £329= $525 Bring on tomorow! Michael Wakeman You can’t preorder the wii u now because it has already launched. You can either get on a list for the next shipment from nintendo or order it. nekocchi Uh, not really sure about that. I preordered the ZombiU bundle for 390€ here in Spain. Sylux So it seems we actually might get TVii afterall (starting at a select number of countries in Europe), for us in Holland it’ll probably become available through Amazon.de atleast when I order something from amazon.co.uk it almost always get’s delivered from amazon.de and sometimes from Amazon.fr Anyways not sure yet whether or not I’ll add a subscription for that (if we dutchies get it), depends on the price I think. As far as the WiiU launch comes in a few days we also have a super deluxe zombiu version it retails for €399,- comes with both ZombiU and Nintendo Land aswell as the standard deluxe stuff and as additional extra a WiiU Pro controller. yet the price seems to vary a lot in Holland, most stores sell it for 299/349/399 but bigger stores stunt with the prices selling it for 269/335/369 so if you want to buy one atleast for Holland, you might want to check several sites as the prices varies a lot depending at which store you pre-order/buy it, is this for other European Countries too? Maybe someone from another European country can verify this? Dáibhí wotshissurname I personally think that the UK will get both Netflix and LoveFilm. Because injustice is part of society. Bosmur I can’t read the articles! Ever since wii u daily got this new comment system a big white square covers the text on my phone and tablet, please fix!!! Zelda Fan omg I had the same problem on my galaxy s3!!!! I know how to fix it! go to browser settings… and click “desktop view” ! hope I helped 🙂 Sylux Thanks for the tip, I just tried it also by setting it to desktop, and now the white screen is gone for me. Zelda Fan your welcome ^-^ I suffered a lot trying to figure it out. . and I wouldnt want anyone else going tbrough the trouble LukeBlackburn thanks Lew3107 I hope we get 4oD and BBC iPlayer in England too, maybe ITV Player to watch Champions League highlights and Demand 5 for The Gadget Show. Robert Papageorge Love Film? Sounds like porn. Thats not good. Not good at all. Dominic Coradazzi But you can already watch porn on the Wii U… RyuNoHadouken i was gonna say the same thing…lol Jonas good to hear. It also got confirmed for my contry so im perfectly fine with it (Austria). Guest Yup it works for me aswell now (Lumia) seems to be working fine again. Thx for the tip Zelda Fan your welcome c: Erwin Yeah in Belgium the price’s seem to be different too in the different shops, I’m buying my zombiu bundle for 364 euro at game mania, the cheapest I could find, some shops sell that bundle for up to 400 euro. Apparently I was the first to reserve (early august) my wiiu at the antwerp game mania, I hope that gets me some kind of reward …..but still happy if it doesn’t spinksynick uk will get lovefilm and netflix and maybe bbc iplayer Non_Specific_Action_Figure Well that is nice lumpy182 Just like the PS3, it’ll get BBC iPlayer, LoveFilm (which is the exact same thing as “Amazon Instant Video”, US fans 😉 ) and Netflix eventually. Also Youtube. SYates YES! I live in the UK and was curious to know if LoveFilm would be available on the Wii U since I already have a subscription to them and I’m tired of using the PS3’s awful LoveFilm app. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m pretty sure Nintendo have probably done a better job of this than Sony. Marioravestozelda Glad were getting love film,might have them instead of netflix.
