TV subscription service Hulu Plus is now available on the Nintendo Wii U, with the partnership offering a range of second-screen features.
Wii U users can watch Hulu Plus content on their TV or console, flicking between the two at the touch of a button. If they watch on TV, they can control Hulu Plus via the Wii U or access information about the shows on their console.
“At Hulu’s development center in Seattle, we spend our time focusing on making the Hulu Plus living room experience delightful for our subscribers,” Hulu writes on its blog. “With our latest innovation, we’ve teamed up with Nintendo to bring you a brand new way to watch your favourite current season TV shows on the biggest screen in the house while using a fully integrated second screen experience.”
The Wii U launched in the US on November 18 and is scheduled to debut in Europe on November 30.
