TiVo Streaming to new Wii U Game Pad!

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

"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.

Editorial: Nifty move for TiVo

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

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.
