Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Video launching this Wednesday

 

Nintendo of Europe has announced that the 3DS video service will launch in Europe on Wednesday. Nintendo Video acts just like Spot TV in that users can automatically receive 2D and 3D videos through SpotPass. This service includes cartoons, documentaries, among others; it is able to automatically download content that will be shown in the HOME menu of the console. Saved for a limited period of time, the video content can be watched as often as the user wants to.

Content to be available for the application includes:

  • Selected episodes of Oscar’s Oasis (TeamTO & TUBA) – for the first time completely in 3D
  • Magic Tricks (D4D)
  • Country-exclusive content: Germany has ZDF.Archive with 3D documentaries about the Great Wall of China or Taj Mahal; videos of the Fantastische 4 tour

Future content includes:

  • Movie trailers
  • Classic concerts
  • Animations for children

Yeah, although I suppose it is possible that some people might be enjoying it, the service in Japan isn't what I had been hoping for. Something similar to the documentaries they have on "Wii no Ma" would have been very welcome, but I guess even that would be difficult if they are going to stick with the 2-minute limit. 

As it is now, I stopped watching after the second day.

Haha, I watched it for maybe 4 days.

It's just not interesting. 2 minute videos of which 30 seconds are uninteresting commercials? Meh. :/

I would also prefer contents like they offeren on the Wii.

At least I can watch Game Center CX on the eshop.

This would just be a supplimentary video service in America, we don't have anything like Netflix for the whole Europe. There are a few services scattered around like LoveFilm in some countries, Voddler starting (the video Spotify) or BBC iPlayer in the UK (it's on the Wii so it'll be on the 3DS)...
