    As the title says Tvii is up and running , only I am having an issue . Fios isn't listed as a provider for me , I only have 4 choices of providers and one of then I cant see on the gamepad. I can only see a very small corner of the box so I have to use the stylus to click it and it offers the most channels . I wonder when they will fix this .

    Kind of neat using here in Ohio. Tried the tag thing but it is weird. Lets you add comments to certain television shows, while also sharing them to your facebook and/or twitter account. The only thing odd there is when it does so it just says you made a comment and says what the comment is. If the person on facebook/twitter account reads it there isn't anything that lets them know what show you are currently talking about, just the comment.

    You can use Netflix , why would you think you cant ? You have to d/l the netflix app or whatever ninty wants to call it

    Netflix support in TVii isn't live yet. Not sure why, but they've already said it'll be there in the future so I'd not worry much about it. I can only assume there was a last minute issue, and rather than push TVii back further, they figured it was better to get it out there.

    THIS article sums it up all pretty nicely...

    This is what the official Nintendo site says:

    Code:
    Find, watch, and engage with TV shows, movies, and sports.
    Nintendo TVii makes watching TV more simple and fun by bringing together everything into one seamless, second screen experience on the GamePad. Enjoy a personalized program guide, remote control, and social second screen—all in one application.
    [*]Use the personalized program guide to find TV shows, movies, and sports across your existing cable or satellite channels, as well as video services like Hulu Plus that you subscribe to. Then, start programs directly from the GamePad.
    [*]Use the remote control to quickly access your favorite channels and control your TV.
    [*]Engage with friends as live TV moments unfold by commenting and sharing on Miiverse, Facebook and Twitter.
    [*]Discover more about what you're watching with information about programs, including cast, reviews, trailers, and more.
    [*]Deepen your sports experience with live stats and scores on the GamePad.

    I've been watching Bones, Whitney, and Kitchen nightmares while using the TVii. Kind of neat to see other peoples replies to the weird stuff on the tv.

    i just plain like how miiverse seems o be incorporated into every aspect of every app and game that the wii u has to offer and it is cool seeing other people's remarks, and being able to disable them if you don't want them around.

    I see now on some shows they are expanding the use and asking yes/no questions or multiple choice questions that you can answer, something like the Xbox does on some of their streaming shows.

    definitely still room for this to grow but how cool is it open up Tivii and have all the tournament games a click away instead of having to search and figure out what network you never heard of the game is on and trying to figure out which channel it is.

    If it was a bit faster I might use it more. Netflix integration is live now and if your ISP supports it you can get Netflix Super HD on your Wii U also.
