Nintendo Europe are hoping to introduce the TVii service in the region sometime next year.
The interactive service will be available on North American Wii U systems from early December, introducing the ability to interact with other viewers in a live environment. Whilst in discussion for Europe previously, it appears to be confirmed via details on the Official Nintendo UK website.
Using the Wii U GamePad, you can browse and search for programming from sources you subscribe to, including cable and satellite channels and video-on-demand services.
More details on which countries and networks will be supported are expected shortly.
