An update on Nintendo UK’s site has revealed that Nintendo TVii, the streaming television service that seeks to turn the Wii U into a more multimedia-focused machine, will also be releasing in Europe some time in 2013.

The service allows users “to find, watch, and engage with TV shows and movies in entirely new ways,” and links the Wii U to services already subscribed to, “including cable and satellite channels and video-on-demand services.”

In the United States, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Netflix, and YouTube are part of Nintendo TVii. Nintendo-Gamer speculates that the latter two streaming services will be included in the UK version of TVii, along with local apps such as Sky+, BBC iPlayer, 4oD, ITV Player, and LOVEFiLM.

The Wii U launches in Europe on November 30.
