Nintendo Says TV Services Are Coming to Wii U December 20

I wonder how long this software update will take? A month after launch, Nintendo is finally launching its TVii service, which lets customers access their TV guide from the GamePad controller. The TVii service is launching Dec. 20 in the U.S. and Canada, and will support various cable and satellite providers, as well as Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus. Integration with Netflix and TiVo have been delayed to early 2013. (Answer: Nintendo says it won’t take any time at all since the service was included in the original software update and just has to be turned on.)
