Nintendo has apologised that its TVii service is still yet to launch in Europe.
TVii launched alongside the Wii U in the US, but was scheduled to make its debut in Europe at some point in 2013. Which didn't happen. Pressing the TV button on the GamePad is therefore significantly less fruitful in Europe, basically.
"We would like to apologise that we were unable to bring the Nintendo TVii service to Europe in 2013 as originally planned," Nintendo has now said on its site (via Nintendo Life).
"Please continue to keep an eye out for further announcements regarding this service in the near future."
In the US, TVii amalgamates cable and satellite service alongside Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and Netflix into the Wii U GamePad, functioning as a nifty programme guide that can then display shows on your TV or on the GamePad itself.
