Behind the scenes – Netflix on the Wii U

Posted by Alan at 5:02 AM on January 16, 2013

You probably already know that Netflix is available on both Nintendo consoles — the Wii and the Wii U. However Netflix pointed out the Wii U version marked the first time the company has ever built an app for a brand new game console.

Now, the DVD giant has produced a behind-the-scenes video that shows a bit of what went into all of this. It is especially interesting given that Netflix claims that “it was also the first time we worked on a second screen experience, for the Wii U GamePad”. If you want even more geeky information then UI Engineer Joubert Nel has written about building Netflix on Wii U over at the Netflix Tech Blog.

In the meantime, you can check out the video posted below to get a feel for how this works.
