    According to Japan's Nikkei business daily newspaper, Nintendo will be launching its video distribution channel sometime next year. Although it will be different from what Sony and Microsoft are offering. Instead of having movies and television programs that are already out, as seen in Sony's video on demand service and Microsoft's Xbox Live Video Marketplace, Nintendo is going to offer cartoons and "mainly family-oriented programming" for the service.

    URWRONG.

    Why would you need friend codes to watch videos?

    But of course, it is Nintendo. So you never know.

    But c'mon.

    Cartoons? WTF.

    Get some R rated movies and just let parents set their own parental controls.

    You're right about the parental controls. Why can't this channel be for all ages instead of just children and families?

    Will you have to pay for this channel? It's a stupid question to ask right now seeing nintendo of japan would be the only ones to know.

    Yeah but I wouldn't buy any content if it's like that you should just pay for the channel and everything else is free.
