You may have the Nintendo Wii U in your hands already but it doesn’t have all the features you really need. Netflix is available already but the Hulu Plus is made available just recently. Features include a second screen navigation on the GamePad as described. You can also expect some playback control options.
After Netflix and Hulu Plus, there’s still the Amazon Instant Video and TVii app to look forward too. We don’t know when but at least Hulu and Netflix are ready for your enjoyment. All you need to do is sign up.
