Nintendo plans to shut down Wii U TVii

Nintendo has announced that the TVii service on the Wii U will be shutting down on August 11 after nearly three years of operation. The final straw that prompted Nintendo to shut down the service completely occurred when Nintendo of Europe failed to get the service working in the region. The service’s primary purpose was to provide owners of the Wii U an effective way to watch television on the console by granting them access to streaming video services, displaying television show options based on personal preferences, and utilizing DVR recordings. Although the idea behind the program seemed ambitious, it was easily beaten out by similar features on the Xbox One and Playstation 4. The news was delivered to Wii U owners via Miiverse and is is unknown if Nintendo plans to launch a revitalized service in the future.

I live in Southern California and I am a college graduate who enjoys playing video games both new and old. However, I am a very selective gamer and I tend to play games from my favorite genres most of the time, but I am still open to anything that peaks my interest. What games I can review or provide editorials for is mostly dependent on whether I can afford a certain game and if I have an opinion about the game that I wish to express. Anyway, I intend to contribute general gaming news and reviews to Cynosure Gaming as much as possible in order to inform, entertain, and unify gamers of all kinds.
