Streaming media is everywhere. Buying a product that doesn't support it really isn't a well thought out investment in my opinion. The convenience of being able to stream media is one of the most exciting and convenient progressions in home theater technology.
I've never been a fan of the Nintendo WII basically because Nintendo has really always been more about childrens games in my opinion. I'm looking at getting one for my daughters benefits though. It is an affordable way to kill two birds with one stone if you require some sort of streaming hardware. (If you're looking for other streaming hardware, look in the menu under Hometheaterbox -> Mediabox/Media Streaming Solutions)
Nintendo recently announced that its 3DS handheld gaming platform and its popular Wii console will acquire the ability to stream movies and television shows from Hulu Plus by the end of the year (Christmas, presumably). Netflix is already present, but Hulu Plus marks the first time these two systems will be able to stream currently-running television shows.
Hulu.com is owned by Walt Disney Co., News Corp., Comcast Corp. and Providence Equity Partners and has been expanding the range of devices where consumers can play content from its $7.99-per-month Hulu Plus service.
The new service is only for Hulu Plus subscribers. Currently, the free version of Hulu is only available to those viewing content on an actual PC or laptop via web browser.
If you're looking for a WII follow the Amazon link below, there are several bundle choices here....The Nintendo 3DS can also be found here.
I guess there are some good uses for the WII after all.
