Nintendo Considering Extensive On-Demand Video Content for Wii U

Nintendo Considering Extensive On-Demand Video Content for Wii U

Looks like Nintendo wants the Wii U to be your family’s number-one media console. AdWeek has cited multiple unnamed sources that have reported that Nintendo is in talks with “top content companies” to expand the on-demand video content for their new console. One source cited Comcast as a potential partner for on-demand video. Unfortunately, much like Xbox’s Comcast video content, you may need a Comcast subscription to access it.

Nintendo just acquired Hulu Plus for the Wii and 3DS, and both systems have had Netflix for a while now. News that the Wii U could be like Xbox Live with Comcast and possibly Verizon is great news for Nintendo.

What do you think? What other On-demand video sites could be added to Wii U? Crackle? YouTube?
