Hulu Plus enhances Wii, Ninetendo
Michelle Clancy ©RapidTVNews | 22-10-2011 Hulu Plus online TV and movie streaming support is being added to both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii gaming consoles.
Wii and Nintendo 3DS users will be able to instantly stream thousands of TV episodes -- including the entire current seasons of popular shows like Modern Family, Glee, Dancing with the Stars, The Biggest Loser, House and Grey's Anatomy -- from premium content partners like ABC, Comedy Central, FOX, NBC, MTV and others. Hulu Plus also offers access to classic TV favorites like Lost, Battlestar Galactica, The Hills and hundreds of movies.
The service will be live by the end of the year. Nintendo is also announcing new features, including the ability to record 3D videos, new music videos and a new animated 3D video from DreamWorks.
The enhancements are aimed at the holiday shopping season. "Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve with great new features and functions designed to reinforce its position as a premiere entertainment device," said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. "All of these features, in addition to great upcoming games like Pokemon Rumble Blast on 24 October, Super Mario 3D Land on 13 November and Mario Kart 7 on 4 December, make Nintendo 3DS a smart gift option this holiday season."
