The Big N has revealed that the TVii will be available for Japan the same day that it’s released there on December 8. Nintendo TVii will also be available for some European regions in 2013. The application will be available to users in December. There hasn’t been a firm date for North America for this service. The Japanese TV guide data is from Rovi’s C-Guide service and will be available to use anytime, even during a game or TV show. This feature will cost Japanese Wii U owners ¥100, but will be free for North American users.
