If you're one of the millions of consumers who have gone in on Nintendo's new Wii U console, tomorrow (Dec. 20) you'll be getting long-awaited TV streaming functionality via a downloadable update. 

Nintendo TVii brings streaming via Comcast cable, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and TiVo to your Wii, with the Wii U GamePad serving as a second screen and remote control. You'll also be able to post to Twitter and Facebook directly from the GamePad.

WiiU is free to use, although it only works with content you've already paid for. Get a preview of the service in action in the video clip above.
