    From the Nintendo website. Nintendo TVii is part of the new console's (Wii U) GamePad functionality.

    http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu/features/#/features-tvii

    "Nintendo TVii enables you to find, watch, and engage with TV shows, movies and sports programming, all from the Wii U GamePad. You can search for programs across Wii U Video Entertainment, TV channels and your own TiVo DVR"

    TiVo Mini functionality - so that software update should be coming prior to the Nov launch of the Wii U. And presumably the Wii U itself is also doing the video conversion necessary to "stream" content to the gamepad.

    This is an excellent move. I just hope this is a precursor to other devices getting similar fuctionality from TiVo.

    Some of us only follow the Premiere forum, though :) So I am glad to know about it here.

    I think this has potential, but more questions than answers at this point. Despite the subject/topic of this thread WE DO NOT KNOW IF IT CAN STREAM VIDEO or if it is just a tablet-like remote control app.

    The more we learn, the more streaming seems unlikely.
