Netflix on the New Wii U (Original)

Millions of Netflix members use Nintendo’s Wii system to watch movies and TV shows. Nintendo products are popular with our members and today we are happy to announce that Netflix is available on Wii U!

The Netflix experience on the Wii U system was designed to take advantage of the console’s unique two-screen experience with up to 1080p HDTV and the Wii U GamePad for the best browsing and viewing experience.



When browsing, movies and TV shows and detailed information are shown on both the TV and GamePad so everyone in the room can see all of the TV shows and movies available.

Scrolling or browsing is shown both on the TV and GamePad. All traditional controls are accessible on the GamePad such as play, episode selection, rating capability, and add to queue.

First Look Trailer: Netflix Original Series ‘House of Cards’ (Original)

With less than three months to go before our premiere, we’re proud to share the first trailer from the Netflix Original Series House of Cards.



From acclaimed director David Fincher, award-winning playwright and Academy Award® nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon, and Academy Award® winner Eric Roth, this wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.

An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, House of Cards stars Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey as Francis Underwood, the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician’s politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire, played by Robin Wright, stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. The series also stars Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Kristen Connolly, Michael Kelly and Sakina Jaffrey.

House of Cardscombines the best of filmmaking with the best of television. Netflix members worldwide can instantly watch all 13 episodes of the first season of the show beginning on February 1, 2013. In offering the entire season at once, Netflix is giving viewers complete control over how and when they watch the show.  Learn more about the series and explore the characters at Netflix.com.…
