does it have a subscription attached to it or is it free?

Well, you had to care enough to post in here otherwise you would have kept it moving.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 12:31:44 PM PST
I think it is free, but I will try it out once I get home.

The individual streaming services may have their own subscription fees (i.e. Netflix or Hulu Plus), but the Nintendo TVii app is free to use.

It isn't free if you have to buy the console (or something like that.)

yeah, that's what I meant. if it's like Hulu Plus or Amazon prime, i'm not goin for it.

You have a WiiU?

Sha Gojyo says:
yep, the 8GB version, no games though till the price of em goes down. $60 per game is a bit much when you dunno if the game is gonna be good or not, or worth paying $60 for it.

GarionOrb says:
New Super Mario Bros. U is definitely worth $60. And as it's a first-party title of their #1 franchise, it won't drop in price.

I don't think there will be any free content on TVii. It's mostly going to just be a hub for all the different media services out there.

NSMBU is, I am unsure about ZombiU so far. All the multiplats are not if you already own a PS3 or 360. Scribblenauts I think is $40 or 50 at a lot of places, might be worth it.

New Super Mario Bros. U

Crap! I was going to make a joke about it being something like $58.99 now, but it's actually gone up.

3rd Party seller though, so it's not exactly the legitimate price.

I hated ZombiU. It has a great concept, but the game looks and plays like a beta version. Scribblenauts is NOT worth full price, and it's probably better on the 3DS since it's portable. The Wii U version doesn't require a TV at all, but you can't take it with you anywhere.

Can anybody explain what WiiTV actually does? I still don't get it. I mean I can use my Gamepad to select Netflix movies and post about them? Is that it? :)

As for games, I have NSMB-U, easily worth $60, I put 18 hours into the game for all star coins. I want Scribblenauts, but will be waiting for a price drop.

NSMB-U is definitely worth $60. I have only done the first 4 worlds so far, but I think it is the best 2D Mario yet. Lego City Undercover looks fun too, though I have not played it.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:12:36 PM PST
It's not as good as Super Mario World, but it's right up there. I'm through the first 3 levels.

Keller says:
I actually like it more to be honest. The later levels get crazy. :)

Lego City Undercover, is that a U exclusive or something? I never heard of it.

I just wanna jump on the New Super Mario Bros. WiiU circle-j and also say that it's probably the best entry in the "New SMB" series. It's also one of the more challenging Mario's in recent memory, but they balance that out by giving you a billion lives.

I think it is an exclusive, but I am not certain. It looks fun

Lego City Undercover is a Wii U and 3DS exclusive, I believe.

Supposedly it will also work for cable providers, which would be a big deal... but I've heard almost no details as to what services besides the standard streaming stuff it supports.

Weird...I thought the point of TVii was to use the gamepad as all-in-one multi-function controller...like say a Logitech Harmony...all devices down to the cable box.

dunno what gave Nintendo the idea of making a controller that not only controls games, but controls the TV as well. nothing new about that. I have a remote control wrist watch that does the same thing, it also controls the VCR, VCD, DVD and satellite system as well, with codes of over 100 brands of all 5 systems.
