YouTube Releases Native Wii App

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 16th, 2012

Watching YouTube videos on the Wii just got a whole lot easier; YouTube’s native Wii app streamlines the process and cuts out the need for the Internet Channel browser.

Previous to this release you had to use the $5 Internet Channel and the Opera Browser to access YouTube. It worked but it wasn’t elegant by any means. The new YouTube Wii app sports a clean interface, simple Wiimote-based controls, and all the great YouTube content you can handle.

The app is free but currently U.S. only. According to the press release, the app will be rolled out to other countries in the coming months.
