At one level a large number of other folks I knew (those that purchased into the Wii Fit craze and promptly surrender) had been simplest the usage of their Wiis for video playback. It’s a at hand transportable software needless to say, particularly if you do not purchase a large number of units initially: however it is time to warn your aunts, uncles and grandparents of the prospective imminent video apocalpyse.
According to an e mail from Netflix from a Wii consumer, Nintendo has printed that they are going to be casting off get admission to to all video apps at the Wii someday round January 31, 2019.

But seeing the Wii U move down in only a few years…savage.
