It already dropped for the trusty old Wii last week – a boon for the millions….and millions of Wii owners – and now Wii U owners can utilise the LOVEFiLM icon on their Wii U gamepad and enjoy Amazon’s excellent streaming movie service on their dazzling new Ninty HD box ‘o’ tricks.
Once logged in, members can watch, search and browse titles from the LOVEFiLM streaming catalogue – all as part of their existing membership package. LOVEFiLM’s Watch List is also included, allowing film and TV fans to add titles in the streaming library to a personalised queue for easy access later.
The new LOVEFiLM Instant app is also enhanced by the second screen functionality of the Wii U console. Members using the Wii U GamePad controller benefit from an improved user experience, including the ability to view video content on both the TV and GamePad, or access details of films or TV shows (such as casting or episode lists) when browsing the LOVEFiLM Instant library.
Sounds ace to me.
