The Wii U has been out for two years and Nintendo still has not managed to bring Nintendo TV to the console in UK or Europe, if you click on the icon, you are greeted with a message saying the service is not yet available.
However people in the UK may be able to get the BBC’s iPlayer service early next year, whilst not quite the same as Nintendo TV, it will give people access to BBC TV services.
Senior Product Manager for BBC iPlayer Peter Lasko, revealed this whilst, replying to an article on the Xbox One iPlayer announcement:

Nintendo has released a new update and it patches the Ninjhax exploit, here are other features that it brings:
Changes in system software version 9.3.0-21E
A shuffle feature for HOME Menu themes has been added, which automatically changes the theme after putting the Nintendo 3DS system into Sleep Mode from the HOME Menu, or when turning the system on. It can be set using the Change Theme option in HOME Menu Settings.
It is now possible to take screenshots of the upper and lower screen at the same time when using the HOME Menu’s screenshot function.
- System stability improvements and other adjustments
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user’s experience.
Those of you wishing to still be able to run home-brew don’t update…

PROJECT ABANDONED! AFTER CONSULTING WITH OTHERS IN THE SCENE, I FOUND OUT THIS KIND OF HACKING VECTOR IS NOT POSSIBLE!
I am however working on other various Wii U hacking related projects, but don’t expect any formal announcements until I have something tangible to show off. I don’t want anymore mistakes like this one. Sorry for the confusion.
Nintendo showed some awesome footage of the new Zelda game which is coming next year:
