By simply pressing the TV Control Button on the Wii U GamePad, you’ll have access to digital buttons that allow you to control the television as if you’re using a designated TV remote. The digital buttons, which appear on the new controller’s 6.2 inch touchscreen, allow you to turn your TV on and off, change channels, switch between various inputs, and control volume. The Wii U GamePad’s digital buttons can also function with cable boxes.
Great, now I will never lose the TV remote!!
