Nintendo TVii (pronounced "TV") is a discontinued television-based service made by Nintendo for the Wii U. Together with Hulu Plus, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube, Nintendo TVii collected and collaborated these services for integration into a single software. Nintendo TVii was free, although subscriptions for Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon were not, just as on other platforms. Nintendo TVii videos were playable on both the television screen and the GamePad. It also provided instant information from Wikipedia and IMDb about the film or program the users were currently watching. Control over the user's DVR was also possible via the service.

Nintendo TVii could only be received through a system update released on launch day via a wireless Internet connection. For Europe and Oceania, Nintendo TVii was delayed and eventually canceled. Nintendo TVii was discontinued on August 11, 2015 in North America and on November 8, 2017 in Japan.
