Nintendo UK has released a statement on their website confirming that TVii will not launch in Europe.
Cancellation of Nintendo TVii service for European regions
At Nintendo of Europe, we continue to challenge ourselves to develop a range of entertaining experiences for all to enjoy. Due to the extremely complex nature of localising multiple television services across a diverse range of countries with varied licensing systems, regrettably we have taken the decision not to launch the Nintendo TVii service within the European region. Although on this occasion we did not anticipate such challenges, we will always strive to develop a range of entertaining experiences for all our users to enjoy.
With this in mind, Nintendo of Europe has launched the Nintendo Anime Channel, a new video-on-demand service on Nintendo 3DS which offers users the chance to stream anime series from the likes of Pokémon, Kirby, and Inazuma Eleven. New content will be added regularly and access to this service is granted simply by downloading a free application from Nintendo eShop.
The service which allows Wii U owners to browse TV and watch it via their gamepad was launched in Asia and North America when the console was released, however Europeans have been waiting for the app, which is included in the systems firmware, to be activated.
TVii connects to your cable TV and allows streaming from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Instant and Hulu as well as allowing you to post to social networks Facebook, Twitter and Miiverse.
Nintendo does however take time to point European Wii U owners to their Anime channel which plays Nintendo cartoons including Pokémon, Kirby and Inazuma Eleven
